Orkestar MÉZÉ featured in Bulgarian media

It has been an exciting summer that began with the release of our second and self-titled record. Since then, media on both sides of the ocean have enthusiastically embraced the album, with an especially wonderful response and support by Bulgarian print media and radio. “Standart” – one of the biggest newspapers there, featured 2 separate materials on the band and it’s leader Milen Kirov (one of them was a 2-page spread!).
