    Ivo Papasov; in countries that don't use cyrillic alphabet also known as Ivo Papazov (there seem to be troubles with translating "Иво Папазов")

    Hailed as the creator of contemporary Balkan music, Ivo is certainly one of the finest clarinet virtuosos in the world. He's being praised by such figures as Steve Vai, Frank Zappa or Joe Boyd.
    He is known around the globe as King of the Wedding Music. In 2005 BBC honoured him with BBC World Music Award (Audience Award).

    His music is influenced by traditional Bulgarian and Balkan folk music and also jazz, creating beautiful melodical improvisations that will amaze anyone open to music.
    Besides Theodosii Spassov probably best known Bulgarian musician.

    'Ivo's wedding music, played first thing in the morning, provides thorough and long-lasting attitude adjustment for the busy executive.'
    Frank Zappa
