a musical bridge between the Balkans and Italy.

Kocani Orkestar (Macedonia) incontra la Municipale Balcanica (Italia-Puglia) Guest Roberto Ottaviano

MBKoc

"Quante lingue ancora sconosciute racconta questa musica.
Quanta gente e volti bruni e occhi vivi
E profili di montagne e strade mai battute
E caffè affollati e terra polverosa
Trascinano con sé in ogni nota
Le dita che battono sui tasti.
Quanti mattini piovosi o aromi di feste
o speranze o abiti di spose
o colori di spezie o preghiere
abbracciano questi suoni."

One of the most popular Balkan brass band meets the young, but already established Apulian band. In this very special project the two ensembles rearrange and re-visit each other's melodies, in a swirl of ideas and suggestions: from the music for weddings and funerals of the Balkans to the traditional banda of the Southern Italy, from jazz improvisation to the rhythms of dervish ceremonies in Macedonia.
