Bulgaria: Serbia's Pop Folk Legend Lepa Brena to Thrill Bulgarian Fans in April Pop-folk superstar Lepa Brena is to stage a two-hour concert in Sofia in April.

Pop-folk icon Lepa Brena and her band Sladki Greh are to stage a two-hour concert in Sofia on April 16, organizers from the capital's Nai Club announced.

Lepa Brena is expected to arrive in Bulgaria on her private jet to thrill admirers after more than 17 years since her last concert in the country.

In 1990, on the national stadium Vasil Levski, Lepa Brena gathered more than 100,000 exalted fans. The concert has been recognized as the biggest one in the history of Bulgarian, as well as Serbian show business.

Lepa Brena, whose real name is Fahreta Zivojinovic, is the most successful singer of the 1980s in former Yugoslavia, being the first to combine traditional folk music with pop elements.

Songs such as "Mile voli disko" (1982), "Sitnije, Cile sitnije" (1983), "Hajde da se volimo" (1987) and "Boli me uvo za sve" (1990) are amongst the most popular Yugoslav songs and are definitive of the music of that era.
