Sofia, Bulgaria, October 18, 2015. After the final of EuroVolley 2015, the organizers surprised the spectators at Arena Armeec with a live performance of Bulgaria’s most popular folk singer Valya Balkanska and her bagpipe player Petar Yanev. The audience itself was thrilled to take part in the spectacular show.
The lights at Arena Armeec went out and the fans on the stands were asked to turn on and raise their mobile phones. In this truly cosmic atmosphere, Valya Balkanska sang her emblematic song "Izlel ye Delyo Haydutin”, a 1977 recording of which was included on the Golden Record carried on board the Voyager 1 and Voyager 2 probes as a musical message from the planet Earth to outer space.
