World Music Charts EuropeWelcome to the world of gypsy singer Jony Iliev. Join him on his frantic ride through the streets of Sofia's gypsy quaters and its nightclubs. Let him entrance you with the Balkan groove of his diabolically swinging band, and indulge in the maestro's voice and his songs situated somewhere between dream and reality. It is almost a matter-of-course that by now, Jony Iliev and band are on the forefront of Bulgaria's new spectacular Roma-Sound. They have this special intense quality about them, dreaming and fantasizing in their songs about life in Sofia, its nightclubs, the American dream and the muddy lanes of the gypsy quaters of Kjustendil, their home.
