Bulgarian participation in the Day of the Mediterranean

Bulgarian participation in the Day of the Mediterranean

Association “International Initiatives for Cooperation”, Bulgaria, the coordinator of the Bulgarian Network of Anna Lindh Foundation, received a grant under the “Day of the Mediterranean’’ initiative, second edition in 2023. Thank to this we will have opportunity to mark that special day with a concert. Music is a special medium of expression and communication that unites differences and makes people better. The concert will feature groups that perform different musical genres such as punk, flamenco and indie rock, with which we want to show that if we are centered around a common cause, differences can be overcome.

The concert will be held on 8 December 2023 in Blagoevgrad, in the best club for life performance in the town.

Those are the musicians who will be our ambassadors for peace and will take care of our good mood:

 Samul Gelev (El Samo) from Sofia will play flamenco and rumba for all fans of Spanish music. He will heat up the atmosphere for the other groups. He had lived for many years in Cuba and carries the spirit of Cuban culture within him.

People of Maha from Sofia is an all-female indie rock band mixing Bulgarian and Brazilian influences. Founded in 2018, the band is formed by Alex on drums, Bia on vocals and Mila on guitar.

"Kallo Malayo" is a punk rock band from Razlog, whose members have been playing together for almost two years. They are fans of punk rock music and play in their free time, but they already have several professional performances behind them.

The members of the National network Anna Lindh Bulgaria are invited to join the event as well as representatives of the local community. The concert will be broadcasted live. It will also be recorded and shared with all Anna Lindh Foundation members who could not attend or view it live.
