Boris Kovac – World After History

Berlin, Germany – With his new band La Campanella, Boris Kovac, composer, instrumentalist and multimedia artist from the Vojvodina part of Yugoslavia, presents the first spin-off from his critically acclaimed La Danza Apocalypsa Balcanica project. According to Piranha Records, World After History – A Pannonian-Mediterranean Round-Trip (PIR-CD1997), a natural hybrid of Pannonian and Mediterranean elements, opens up wide spaces of sentiment, indulging in nostalgia, joy, tristesa, romantic enthusiasm and melancholy alike: “I can’t change or stop history – but I can make it pause for a moment, the time it takes to play the record.”
