His first "appearances" in family celebrations together with his father, where he plays whatever he had of Dad – drummer, bass guitarist, and the synthesizer. So learns almost all folk songs who knows. In secondary music school "Panayot Pipkov", g. Pleven, along with classmates, playing in TIG "Repriz". A little later – with Goji and Gerasim (former member of the Ku-Ku band) created the group "experiment" e xported many concerts as their own compositions with rock and folk elements. At Evgeni Dimitrov won the second prize of the national competition for young performers in Sofia 1982, first prize of the national competition "svetoslav obretenov" Provadia in 1986, and more. The musical growth of the Maestro was not easy, however, had to exercise a lot. In the initial course his father entered the notebook in which Evgeni says how many hours a day playing, and his sister to sign that. The two required years of army lines for Evgeni pass into the youth male choir to a representative ensemble of construction troops, where is the accompanist, choir-master and leader of the baritonite. Participated in several concerts devoted to the 200th anniversary of the French revolution in Sofia, Varna and Strasbourg, along with Sofia and Lyon filharmonii.

A curious fact about this tool is that it has been tested personally by Jon Lord, organist of Deep Purple only. Wherever he is with the group, Evgeny can always do music, arrangement, score or record because in addition to the keys on the piano, he retrieves the sounds and by the CPU of your computer. However, the result is one-touch of the keyboard turns into beautiful music. Evgeny is the musician who wrote most of the songs on "Ku-Ku band". Especially loved his album "Roma Tv" – best-selling album. The Maestro remembers with a smile, the story of the song "Dulcinea". He and Slavi compose it in Brown's Basu Studenstki Wartburg city. "Something personal" is the song that Evgeni composes especially for Fame. To make or listen to music really means to her "experience" and not to "understand". Because the music can not be covered by the mind, music can be comprehended only by the heart. "Music affects the feelings and. .. Don't fall victim to foreign opinions, listen to music that will affect you and will make you happy ... and she's the most abstract art, that's why it's so great... "– that's convinced Evgeni Dimitrov. And yet, that the job was his religion and passion, and the piano – the genius of the human hand.

Georgi Milchev-Goji bass guitar[edit]

Georgi Milchev-Goji is born on October 24, 1969 in the city of vratsa. I was born under a lucky star, it became clear the first few seconds of his life.

In ninth grade, organized the escape from the Russian language, which at that time are seen as sabotage in the Bulgarian-Russian relations. This brings him unpleasant encounters with the principal of the school and politinspektora, and his father was threatened by exclusion from the party.

My country, my Bulgaria[edit]

How many nights I did not sleep,

how highway tread -

to return.

How many songs I sang,

how grief experience -

to return.

In my beautiful country

mother, father and wife


There under native sky

waiting for my child

to return.

My Country, My Bulgaria

My love, my Bulgaria

My sadness, my Bulgaria

When you ever love me back.

Even somewhere in the world

unknown to die

will return.

In my beautiful country

and the grass and dirt


Let the blade color

let wind known

hug me.

Let their home fields

to meet me with the song

when I get back.

My Country, My Bulgaria

My love, my Bulgaria

My sadness, my Bulgaria

When you ever love me back.

My country, my Bulgaria,

my beautiful country,

Skolyko Noche I did not sleep,

How was expensive -

To go back.

How many songs I sang,

How much suffering endured -

To go back.

In my beautiful country

Mother, father and wife,

I would like to hug.

There, under the native skies,

My child is waiting

When I get back.

My Country, My Bulgaria

My love, my Bulgaria,

My sadness, my Bulgaria,

To you I will always return the love.

Even somewhere in the world

Someone unknown

Will be back to die here.

In my beautiful country

And the grass, and the earth

I would like to hug.

Let it be a flower stalk,

Let familiar wind

I embrace.

Let the native fields

Greeted me with a song,

When I get back.

My Country, My Bulgaria

My love, my Bulgaria,

My sadness, my Bulgaria,

To you I will always return the love.

My Country, My Bulgaria

My beautiful country,

I'll be back.
