Balkan Jazzović Quintet
Balkan Trafik festival has asked jazz men Nathan Daems & Vasil Hadzimanov to bring together leading artists from Belgium and the Balkans in a new exclusive project. Together they will compose and arrange the repertoire, some of which contains original and traditional compositions, rearranged, jazzified and/or balkanised.
The group proves that jazz and Balkan music have a common base from which spectacular new music naturally emerges. Improvisations explode, Balkan melancholy mixed with jazz atmosphere, with special performances by some extraordinary artists who live on the border of jazz and neighbouring music…
A special mix, the best of both worlds combined in an intoxicating sound, with big stars like Theodosii Spassov, Trixie Whitley and many more
