The Bulgarian La Bamba

I mentioned Ferhat's sideman, Nuray, who comes from Bulgaria and is ethnically Turkish. While we didn't have a language in common, we were able to "converse" in snippets of a few Spanish cover songs he knows.

Sure enough, here is Nuray (in purple shirt, far right) singing "La Bamba" on KanalTurk TV:

You know, I stayed and wrote music in Bulgaria awhile ago; the radio only played chalga music, the jazz cats in the club couldn't swing, but THIS guy is on fire!

Sabor is where you find it. :-)

Thanks for the link to chalga music. It ain't got a thing if it ain't got that middle eastern swing.
