Violin Concert in Pleven

Last week I went to the theater in Pleven with a friend for a violin concert featuring the world-famous Vasko Vasilev. On this tour, the Bulgarian violinist was accompanied by several varied accompaniments including piano, electric guitar, accordion, bongo drums, tambourine and flamenco singing. It was a beautiful, energetic and creative performance. I hadn't heard of him before but I'm really glad I went to the concert because it was totally unique and exciting.

Right now I am visiting friends in Istanbul so I don't have a lot of time to write, but I absolutely love this city and all of the amazing sights and sounds it has to offer. More about Turkey in my next post!
