Devla (Piranha Musik, November 10, 2009)

Few Eastern European brass bands can match the vitality and innovation of Serbian band Boban i Marko Markovic Orkestar, which is led by trumpet master Boban Markovic and his son Marko. Two generations of a legendary Gypsy family join forces to provide a powerhouse of brass virtuosity and infectious energy that has jumped from village celebrations to the dancefloors of the hippest Central European clubs.

Some pieces on Devla: Blown Away to Dancefloor Heaven are downright funky, with a powerful rhythm section composed of drums, bass and bass brass instrumentation. The album includes unexpected elements in a brass band such as, rapping, flamenco, darbuka percussion, and even a bagpipe solo.

Devla: Blown Away to Dancefloor Heaven includes veteran Serbian singers like Rade Krstić whom Marković lured out of his decades-long retirement, the Louis Armstrong-inspired Ljubiša Stojanović as well as  rising stars like Bulgaria’s Sofi Marinova and Sergbian Gypsy Mustafa Šabanović.

With Devla: Blown Away to Dancefloor Heaven, the Boban i Marko Markovic Orkestar shows us an impressive range of brass talent and a joyous mix of Balkan and Gypsy sounds.
