Lubo Alexandrov

Is there no end to the number of Montreal-based musicians who are recording? The city seems to have an embarrassment of riches when it comes to musicians. We cannot completely claim guitarist/composer/singer Lubo Alexandrov as one of our own as he was born in Bulgaria, but he now lives and works out of Montreal. The album is a mixture of gypsy music, Bulgarian dances, and Turkish music with a dose of jazz. The sound is definitely a unique one. The ensemble of musicians that Alexandrov has gathered for this recording is a mixture of Bulgarian and Montreal ones. This certainly is world music. Alexandrov has said that the goal of this album was to give people a taste of the high energy music one would hear at the sometimes three-day long Bulgarian wedding ceremonies.
