The result, combining many cultures, is rich and unconventional, fresh and spontaneous, brimming with energy. They has performed in many Jazz, Classical Guitar, World music festivals and concerts in: Serbia, Montenegro, Bosnia, Italy, Poland, Hungary, Turkey, Russia, USA…They did master classes-clinics and concerts for classical and Jazz guitar students in Europe and in the USA. One of them was at NYU - New York University.

Cooperation with Festivals, Schools, musicians and Jazz clubs is continuing in 2007 on USA tour ( Boston, New York, Chicago, Portland, Scharlotte, Washington...), and in Europe also.

       "Trio Balkan Strings dedication to the music of the Balkans and central Europe is inspiring. The guitar interpretations of this music are wonderful. Really good !!!"

John McLaughlin

 

     Their music is like a handmade carpet, colorful and full of beautiful ornaments, but when you look more carefully and closely, you will see all the beauty of colors and art of every single pattern, thread and string woven in. Trio Balkan Strings is that kind of a carpet which one of the best Balkan guitar players, Zoran Starcevic, has been weaving on guitar strings all his life. It demands a lot of experience and technique, as well as the sophisticated feeling.  Nikola’s and Zeljko’s classical guitar education added some classical guitar techniques and elements and therefore was very useful in writing this music. There is also an influence of the West culture, because Zoran has started his career as a rock musician. He sold a million records in various different musical styles, but his first, final and greatest love is instrumental guitar music. You cannot find anything similar to this interpretation in all the discography, because some ornaments and techniques distinctive for other instruments such as sax and violin found place here. Many of the trills, mordents and the legato technique have never been played on guitar strings before. Authentic, attractive music with the finest taste, real presentation of guitar music in Balkan style and arrangement. You will hear the perfect interpretation from three of them and the universal music language, without frontiers, that fills everyone who listens to the Trio Balkan Strings . It is a music trip to that part of Europe, so if you like any of these elements, or you simply like instrumental guitar music, Trio Balkan Strings  is your perfect choice.
