According to Garth Cartwright, he was "the first Balkan Gypsy musician to win a wide international following with his two Joe Boyd-produced albums for Hannibal Records in the early 1990s." Papasov and his Wedding Band have toured the United States several times.
In 2005 Papasov won the Audience Award from the BBC's Radio3 World Music Awards.
Ivo Papasov was born to a Gypsy family  in Bulgaria and his original name is Ibrahim (Turkish name). As a result of the extensive programme of forced nationalisation of ethnic minority groups during Bulgaria's socialist rule, Papasov changed his first name to Ivo (adapted from Ibo, short for Ibrahim). He speaks Turkish and comes from Kardzhali, a city close to Bulgaria’s Turkish and Greek borders. He grew up in a musical family and followed the Balkan Gypsy tradition of leaving school at a young age to focus on playing music for a living.
