Boban Marković Orkestar

Balkan, World Music



Boban Marković's music became known to the broader audience through Emir Kusturica’s films (Arizona Dream, Underground).

The 14-musician brass band is considered to be one of the most famous brass bands of the Centrale Europe! It blends jazz with Balkan folklore -paying its respects to the Serbian tradition-

A virtuoso father and a prodigious son, Boban and Marko Marković, are active interprets, implicated in the ongoing evolution of the Brass Band tradition. Musicians such as DJ Shantel, Balkan Beatbox or even Zach Condon, leading member of the group Beirut, refer to Boban Marković Orchestra as a source of inspiration and even dedicate songs to him or sample his music.

Sometimes compared with New Orleans Big Bands, with Jamaican ska or even with funk music the rhythms and the melodies establish what this project is : True Balkan music.
