“Pure propulsion: drumbeats as relentless as a machine and horn arrangements that could sound like a silver-toned chorale, a soul horn section, or a choreographed brawl.”–The New York Times
Legendary Serbian trumpeter Marković and his potent 10-piece band reinvent “traditional” folk music with high-octane injections of fevered Gypsy dance tunes, Eastern European jazz, and the sharp, sweet sounds of Balkan brass. A superstar in his homeland for his technical virtuosity and innovative arrangements, he gained international renown as one of today’s most dynamic and exciting musicians.
