It is a pride for me and my orchestra 'Djambo Agusevi', but also for Macedonia that we present at the highest possible level. I hope the state will remember us, at least to thank us for this success.



Marijana Demirev - with classical music for a better life

The Bulgarian town of Sliven is one of the largest Roma ghettos in Europe. There, girls 12 or 13 years old drop out of education, at the same time engaging in the risk of being called a minor.


But Nikola Demirev of Sliven decided to take his daughter Marianna out of such a fate and expand her horizons.


Marianna began attending cello lessons at the school of Georgi Kalajdziev, an artist who once lived in the ghetto.


Today he is a celebrated violinist who teaches classical music to several Roma children. It is all financed by donors from Germany, and the Roma children have already given a concert in front of the audience in the prestigious "Bulgaria" Hall in Sofia.


"In music teaching, our children not only learn to play but also acquire a culture that helps them eliminate the Roma mentality and tradition.


With the music of those children they were released from the difficult fate - the underage marriages.

So far, no institution has succeeded, "says Nikola Demirev, who managed to get his daughter out of the ghetto into normal life because of a disability.


The neighbors used to laugh at the fact that his daughter was learning to play an instrument because they thought music was a strictly men's job. But today they are proud of their young compatriot playing classical music.

Gipsy Kings

The Gipsy Kings are a group of flamencosalsa and pop musicians from Arles and Montpellier in the south of France who perform in Andalusian Spanish.


Although group members were born in France, their parents were mostly gitanos, Spanish gypsies who fled Catalonia during the 1930s Spanish Civil War.


They are known for bringing Catalan rumba, a pop-oriented music distantly derived from traditional flamenco music, to worldwide audiences. The group originally called itself Los Reyes.


Their music has a particular rumba flamenca style, with pop influences; many songs of the Gipsy Kings fit social dances, such as salsa and rumba.


Their music has been described as a place where "Spanish flamenco and gypsy rhapsody meet salsa funk"
