DEBUT ALBUM "OJDA!" IS OUT
Rakija - There's no country

 

The debut album “Ojda!” (a Balkan version of “hey!”, “woohoo!” or other happy expressions) is a journey through the band’s varied and expressive repertoire. From melancholy and fragility, to energetic blasts of instrumental solos, passionate vocals and wild rhythms.

RAKIJA - TV STUDIO B
 

„Ojda!" je prvi studijski album benda „Rakija". Snimljen je u aprilu 2011. godine u Silverton studiju, u Fredrikstadu, u Norveskoj, uz finansijsku pomoc Fonda za podrsku umetnickim stvaraocima Norveske i Norveskog saveta za kulturu.

Na CD-u se nalazi osam kompozicija, u cijoj osnovi je etno zvuk balkanskih prostora. On odzvanja i u autorskim pesmama koje su, nalik sastavu benda, mesavina tradicionalne, rok i, tu i tamo, klasicne muzike.

EXCLUSIVE CONSERT WITH :
*** Sanja Ilic & Balkanika Brass Orchestra ***
_________________________________________________

If there is one concert you are going to this year, this is the one ...

Music is the only world language that needs no translation, and sometimes it is so beautifully performed that even the feelings one is left with is hard to describe. This particularly applies to the music of the legendary composer and song writer Aleksandar Sanja Ilic and his ensamble - Balkanika Brass Orchestra.

Music performed by "Balkanika" is inspired by the folklore of the Balkans. Old music from Balkan with splendid musicians playing traditional instruments, modern orchestrated, performing music which conjures the atmosphere of the Balkan region, in a new outfit for the new millennium. Sanja's group, called "Balkanika", consists of young and talented musicians oriented to ethnic music. "Balkanika"is a very interesting ethno band playing old Balkan instruments with modern feeling and reason.
