Dear friends from all over the world,
Thanks to winning the Galaxie Rising Star Award this summer, Briga & the Band are back in the studio recording the 3rd CD. Although the award helps us get things started, we still need your help to make this record happen.
In an attempt to raise funds, Briga’s decided to start cooking again. The band’s a little concerned about her sanity… Click above to check it out.

Briga & the Band are in the middle of their summer tour, and we couldn’t stop ourselves from giving you an update on how things are going.
Yes: Tacfarinas is surviving Ramadan… surrounded by a bunch of infidels and pagan musicians who eat & drink in front of him. After a week of cultural insensitivity, the band has realized that breaking the fast together is a good way of eating together. Some band members have tried fasting a day or two with Tacfarinas, as an act of solidarity. And now for something completely different: the men in the band have fallen for many Amazonian beauties while on the road. As for Briga? Well, she’s been hiding in her hotel room and unplugging the hotel phone. Why? Who knows!
But the best news is coming up…
After playing to a most receptive TD London Sunfest crowd in London, ON, Briga was awarded the Galaxie Rising Star Award.
Also, fRoots Magazine has included Turbo Folk Stories on their playlist for the summer!
wow! thank you everybody for your wonderful receptiveness! now Briga & the Band get ready for Vancouver Folk Fest.

Spring is here! Or is it…
On March 1st, Bulgarians celebrate “Granny March” (Baba Marta - Баба Марта), a mythical figure who brings with her the end of the cold winter and the beginning of the spring. The exchange of “Martenitzi” happens between friends, sometimes taking the form of red-and-white interwoven string bracelets that wish health and happiness to its recipient.
Doesn’t look like spring is close to arriving here in Montréal however, Montréalers took to the streets on the evening of March 2nd – 3rd to celebrate Montréal en Lumière’s 10th edition of Nuit Blanche. Briga joined some of her friends and exchanged Martenetzis on top of checking out visual arts, music, film, theatre, dance, literature, flights of fancy, and many other surprises in store. Let’s call it Montréal’s own version of the Baba Marta celebrations!
Anyways, we’ve got an exciting year up ahead and we’ll be able to divulge the news to you soon but in the meantime … we’ll keep you entertained with some of the fun stuff from that’s been happening this past winter. Check it out by clicking on the above images.
