Led by Bulgarian-born performer-composer Milen Kirov, Orkestar Mézé has established itself as Southern California's No.1 original Balkan brass band in a short period of time. Since September of 2010 this 11-piece ensemble has gathered a large following through their raucous, joyous live shows where fans from all ages and walks of life dance to the band's trademark "peasant funk." Orkestar Mézé has carved it's own path with their original high-energy electric brass sound mixing American funk, soul and jazz with traditional Bulgarian and Balkan music. The members of the band hail from Bulgaria, Italy, Turkey, New Zealand, Canada, and the US and that diversity is evident in their unique style which they branded Peasant Funk and which is sure to make you dance uncontrollably. Orkestar Mézé's eagerly anticipated debut album 'Peasant Funk' was released in November, 2011.
