The guy I learned with in Bulgaria lives in a small village outside of Plovdiv. That is, he lives there when he's not in Sofia playing at a restaurant gig. I do not know what restaurant he plays at (or did in 2001)...

My advice would be to find someone here who would know someone there. I do know an accordionist in Silistra (NE corner) whose brother lives here, but I do not have any contact with the guy I met near Plovdiv. I have friends here who have relatives there, and when I met Ivo Papasov the first time (1.5 years ago) he said I should just have asked where he was so that I could study with him. I do not think he was too serious, though!  ;)

One idea would be to go to a restaurant where there is someone playing and start talking to them. If you have any languages in common, that helps, but I made it through Bulgaria with a small dictionary and a small phrasebook and prior knowledge of Cyrillic as well as some basic grammar. Oh...another idea...go to the folk music school in the area (I think Plovdiv's is most-highly regarded) and see if you can find someone to help there...

Sorry I can't be of more specific help.
