Thought it was time to introduce you to Aziz. He is a chalga star and was recently on Bulgaria’s Big Brother. He is fascinating and has amazing ‘pop videos’. This magazine cover is on the newstands.

Chalga (Чалга) is a form of Bulgarian music drawing from Balkan folk traditions and incorporating a blend of Arabic, Greek, Turkish and Roma (Gypsy) influences, as well as motifs from Balkan traditional music, flamenco and klezmer music. It is known for repeating musical themes and dance rhythms. Many chalga hits were Greek or Turkish hits, covered by Bulgarian singers, often in more complex musical arrangements.
