OUT ON 26 MAY 2017!The family saga continues – Marko Markovic Brass Band – Single releases
He's not the tender, slender boy anymore – he's now a full-grown man. Marko Markovic finally waved his and his father's Boban & Marko Markovic Orchestra goodbye – and there you have Balkan brass' next generation – the Marko Markovic Brass Band and its first single releases: "Gypsy Rege" / "Leskovacka Rumba".
Two tasters of the things to come – sporting all the classic Balkan brass qualities: centuries old folk heritage, high-speed virtuosity, funky arrangements. And add on top of that everything that’s new and trendy under the younger generation's sun – a subtle reggae riddim, the quicksilver suppleness of international rumba, unrelenting disco beats and smooth state of the art sound design.
It's party time in the global village.
