Megi Angelova – the Bulgarian voice in foreign movies

You can hear Megi Angelova’s gripping voice in the trailer to the film The Woman King, 2022, in an Indian film, and in many TV Korean and Chinese TV series. And though she cannot imagine life without music, the talented singer only recorded her first song – Soul & Heart - when she was 33, and she did so far from her home town of Varna – in fact in London.
During her first years in London she worked as housecleaner, only after that was able to make her dream of music come true. Having grown up in an artistic family, with an excellent education and a love of film music, Megi Angelova put her heart and soul into singing, but also into everything else she has been engaged with – as composer, TV host, artist with exhibitions of her own, Chinese martial arts instructor.  She was also involved in the Bulgarian-Chinese film Tai Chi which won awards at the film festivals in Oregon and Nevada in the US.
