Ederlezi (Бalkansky Remix)
Led by Bulgarian-born performer-composer Milen Kirov, Orkestar MÉZÉ is a musical powerhouse! Since 2011 this 11-piece ensemble has gathered a large following through their raucous, joyous live shows where fans of all ages and walks of life dance to the band’s original high-energy style called "peasant funk.” Featuring a powerful 6-piece horn section, the band’s unique sound is a mix of classic American funk and soul with fiery traditional Bulgarian odd rhythms and slippery modal melodies sprinkled on top with musical spices from NOLA, the Balkans, hip-hop, rock, jazz, and gospel music.
The band’s debut album "Peasant Funk" was released on November 11, 2011 to rave reviews by critics and audiences on both sides of the Atlantic. Online and print media have enthusiastically embraced the record calling it "a magician's hat that you can reach into and pull out anything your heart desires" and "a musical concoction that is equally appetizing to the refined music connoisseur and to the enthusiastic casual listener.”
