I didn’t think that the best party I go to in Boston would be entirely Bulgarian!   

The Farewell BG EUforiya kupon/party in Boston was smashing!

 

 Ten years ago, Nikolay Markov, Niki, came up with the idea of a chalga-free Bulgarian dance party for Bulgarians living in the States!   

 His first party, in honor of the National Liberation Day, took place  in the Bulgarian Embassy in Washington but had mediocre success. His second one was on another national holiday in the popular Bulgarian restaurant/bar Mehanata in New York and was a tremendous success!   

Since then, Niki and his friend and partner Alexander Petrov, Sasho,  have turned BG EUforiya (Bulgarian-European Euphoria) into a regular club event. The DJ duo calls themselves Masters of Kupon, kupon being the word for a blasting party.   

The DJs mix modern dance and techno European rhythms with favorite Bulgarian songs: everything from modern pop to old classics and even traditional folk dances; everything but chalga, of course.   

BG EUphoriya became extremely popular among the Bulgarian partylovers in the States. The Masters of Kupon toured clubs in New York, Boston, Washington, San Francisco, LA, Miami, and Chicago. In 2001, they became (even more) international with tours in Canada, Spain, France, the UK, the Czech Republic, and the good old Bulgaria. BG EUphoriya was the number one dance party for Bulgarians and their friends all over the world!   

I can’t believe I didn’t know about them earlier! The party I went to this Friday was part of BG EUforiya’s farewell  tour (sponsored by http://www.bgfocus.com), and I’m so glad I got to be a part of it! Dj Niki transferred us back in time and space with his dance-remixes of our favorite pop songs: D2, Yikeda, Doni and Momchil, KariZma, Obraten Efekt, Slavi Trifonov, Miro, Elitza Todorova and Stoyan Yankulov, Grafa… ! We were all singing our hearts out! Towards the end of the night, all of us danced the horo  and ruchenitsa to traditional rhythms! The kupon was amazing! Thank you, BG EUforiya!
