AJDE ZORA – Serbia/Italy

A musical caravan to explore the Balkans, through frantic dances and poignant ballads of the gypsy populations who have lived there for centuries; they are six musicians with the Serbian singer Milica Polignano.

With her comes the idea of ​​extending the traditional Balkan repertoire alongside fluctuating and melancholy pieces of Eastern European Romany tradition and rearranging traditional music in which the energy and passion of popular music is released between frantic dances and poignant ballads of people from troubled past.

They had the pleasure of collaborating with Erhan Veliov, trumpeter of the legendary Original Kocani Orkestar by Naat Veliov.

Milica Polignano – vocals;
Giulio Gavardi – guitar, saz, soprano sax and alto sax;
Micol Tosatti – violin;
Francesco Mattarello – accordion;
Giorgio Marinaro – electric bass;
Francesco Prearo – drums and percussion.
