"I fell in love with Bulgaria years ago - the first time I visited your country," says Jean-Baptiste Leclerc. The famous French percussionist lives in Paris, as a performer and teacher he often travels the world for concerts and master classes.

One of his permanent "professional stops" is Bulgaria’s Pleven, where the International Marimba and Percussion Festival is held every year, whose artistic director is the famous Bulgarian musician Vasilena Serafimova.
