Zagreb Balkan Jazz Band is a group of 5 musicians.
Different as though they may seem at first, they all share a penchant for the olden songs and tunes that have so far mostly been heard only in dusky meyhanes scattered throughout the Balkans. What they are passionately committed to is revealing the genuine allure of these musical pieces to hearts and minds of urban audiences with profound taste in music.
Their standard performance, among other things, includes a selection of Gypsy, Macedonian, Bulgarian, Romanian songs, and of course, sevdah music. Their essential elements are always retained, and all the original thrillers and peculiar rhythmic sequences are performed not only with skill, but also with special dedication and respect, not to mention the original Zagreb Balkan Jazz Band twist of jazz and western music.
What makes these performances particularly interesting is that the band also does their original compositions of the same style, which certainly makes them even more worthy of experiencing on stage.
