Goran Bojčevski’s original genre (Balkan nuevo) connects diversity – from the Southern temperament to classical structures, from Balkan patterns to Latin music.
Goran Bojčevski Quintet mainly performs the works of Goran Bojčevski, together with a variety of music, known to everyone (ranging from Bach to Piazzolla, Macedonian folk songs, etc.), which in Bojčevski’s arrangements and in ethno-jazz disguise, sounds completely unique – as so-called Balkan Nuevo.
Each of the musicians undoubtedly achieves perfection. However, when the energies of individuals merge into a single one, a very special story occurs and convinces us that it is not just possible to mix different musical genres, but it is something magical.
Goran Bojčevski completed his master’s degree in clarinet with the highest grade at the prestigious Salzburg Mozarteum, in the class of world-renowned professor Alois Brandhofer.
