Adela describes her thoughts about the role of music in worship as follows: “Music is a divine art that touches the innermost of our spiritual universe. Music makes us feel deeper empowered by and … connected with God. It provides an inexplicable sensation of encounter with God and creates in each human soul a sacred space of a Holy presence.”
Adela and her husband Vesselin have a toddler son, George, and a dog Mimi.
