Imagine twelve shining brass instruments blasting away, lead by a trumpet as rapturous as it is melancholic. Imagine the Balkanic fusion of the love of life with its inescapable sadness. Imagine Boban Marcovic, judged "best trumpet on Earth" at the legendary Guca festival in central Serbia, playing live in Belgrade. Now stop imagining - this is the real thing. "The loudest unamplified band you've ever heard", laying down the funkiest Balkan grooves you've ever heard before an audience of delighted brass afficionados. Blow, Boban, Blow!

Quotes

"It's loud, rhythmic, uproarious, in-your-face party music - imagine a highly-caffeinated edition of Lester Bowie's Brass Fantasy vacationing in the thin-air mountains of Peru with a Mexican Mariachi band playing Gipsy folk tunes."

jazzreview.com

"Supremly rich, varied and inventive Serbian Brass from a true musical thinker."

Songlines

"This record is dangerous in the way the spring is dangerous: its exuberance owerwhelms the listener and demands:"You must change your life or end it"

Global Rhythm

"The Word Funky is not often associated with traditional Serbian Roma music. At least, not until trumpeter Boban Markovic assembled his badass brass band and began hooking up a storm."

Now Toronto

"Able to leap tall buildings with a single bound, the Markovic Orkestar has moments of pure possession, but an ear for the extraordinary remains ever grounded in tight arrangement and superb musicianship."
