Ivo Papasov Fairground (CD)
Thirty years ago, in 1974, long before Balkan music was discovered on the major music scene, Papazov started his revolution with his Trakija Band. At the time he could hardly have known that he was creating a new movement, later known as wedding band music, a mix of Bulgarian and Balkan folk with contemporary elements. His work changed the face of Bulgarian and world music and developed it in new directions. No wonder his fans around the world call him the King of Wedding Band Music. In reference to his amazing talent, Bulgarians call him the Aga (the Master). And Papazov really is part of the best moments of their lives. His music resounds not only at major concert venues, but also at the important days of their lives, their weddings and family celebrations.
His new album Fairground is a source of what we all love so much: a tender, lyrical and crazily exuberant mix of bright sounds, beautiful melodies, improvisations in half-tones and rhythms, so lovingly created that it draws from our hearts what we cherish most. Here Ivo plays with his wife - the singer Maria Karafizieva - and his old friends from the Trakija Band: Nesho Neshev on accordion, Vasil Denev on keyboards and Salif Ali on drums. But shades of modern Bulgarian music also appear in the form of master musicians like Stoyan Yankulov on tupan drum and percussion, Ateshhan Husseinov on guitar, Vasil Parmakov on piano, Ivo Zvezdomirov and Stefan Marinov on bass.
