Bendida interprets mythology from the territory of ancient Thrace - Slavic, Thracian and others. The band draws inspiration mainly from classical music, metal music and last but not least - the Bulgarian folklore.

Besides the traditional rock music instruments, the band also includes the viola da gamba, which sound has been part of Bendida's appearance for several years. The epic sound of the songs includes choir parts, orchestrations, flutes and a string section. In the music is included the traditional Bulgarian instrument tambura, which adds the characteristic folklore shots to the music of Bendida.
