As the finale of the three-year European MOST Music project, the first Balkan MOST festival was held in Vesprem, where we had the opportunity to present ourselves. The festival was a showcase for the artists who participated in this European project, and the hedaliners of the festival were Marina Satti, Dubioza collective, Manu Chao and others.
The festival also had an accompanying program, a conference, which included various panels, lectures, and quick meetings with representatives of the music industry. A perfect opportunity to connect with foreign media as well, during which we had the pleasure of talking to journalists from Japan, Poland, Great Britain and Slovakia.
We were lucky to meet Anna Masatova, our mentor from Most Music project and Christian Pliefke, head of CPL-Music, our label, and talk to many colleagues from the global music scene.
European Folk Day in Novi Sad
Join us on Saturday, September 23 at Zenit Books in Novi Sad for a free workshop of body music from the Balkans. This event is a sort of echo of the New Balkan Rhythm festival, where we played this music. We organize the workshop as part of the European Folk Network initiative.
On the same day, the premiere screening of videos from the opening concert of the New Balkan Rhythm festival will begin.
