Octet Plovdiv is a jazz band founded in 2012 by pianist Miroslav Turiiski and includes also Alexander Lekov (bass), Kristian Jelev (drums) Venelin Georgiev (alto saxophone), Dimitar Liolev (tenor saxophone), Martin Tashev (trumpet), Darin Ivanov (trumpet) and Blagoy Geshev (trumpet).

Spectators are thrilled with the prospect of listening to Patti Austin, USA, the Grammy-winning R&B, pop and jazz singer.
