Bulgarian-American Story is a live solo accordion musical act featuring accordionist Milen Slavov (About Milen). This is a cultural and entertainment offering that includes lyrical motifs, fiery passages, dazzling improvisations, odd meters, funny stories, music fusion and melodies with no rhythm. Created by Milen, the show embraces original Bulgarian music in traditional and contemporary styles and world music fusion influenced by a Balkan and Eastern-European heritage interwoven with a western life experience.

"Slavov demonstrates the capacity to cross not only the boundaries of time and space but also enter the variable dimensions of human experience." - Greg Smith, Professor of Teacher Education, Lewis & Clark College, Portland Oregon
