    Dear colleagues,

    I am a singer/songwriter from Bulgaria and would like to perform in Azerbaijan. Since there is a direct flight between Sofia and Baku now, it is easy to come. I have two music projects:
    My band “Lilly of the West” (blues/jazz/swing)
    My duo “Lilly and Krasi” (acoustic music from all over the world)

    I would love to come pro bono (on my own expenses) and promote my music and see the country. Maybe you could help?

    Best regards,

    Lilly Drumeva-O’Reilly
