MARKO HATLAK & KAPOBANDA

Marko Hatlak, accordion, vocal

Goran Rukavina, double bass


Marko Hatlak, »audience favourite« described by the German newspaper Berliner Morgenpost, is performing all over the world since 2000. After graduating from the Ljubljana Conservatory of Music and Ballet he continued his studies in Germany – first in Weimar under professor Ivan Kobal, and later in Würzburg where he finished his postgraduate studies under the renowned professor Stefan Hussong. Twenty years of performing solo concerts and sharing the stage with many acknowledged solo artists, ensembles, orchestras, and conductors has led him to his unique and unmistakable approach. The musical genres he performs – tango, ethno, baroque and contemporary classical music – are brought closer to the audience through music and story-telling, thus forming a genuine bond with the listeners. Lately, he has been active as an author and singer in the Marko Hatlak BAND, performing pop, funk, Latin and rock. He has toured in Europe and America. He collaborates with outstanding musicians such as Stefan Milenković, Tommy Emanuel, Stefan Hussong, Vlatko Stefanovski, Iztok Mlakar and others. As a soloist, he has performed with Moscow Philharmonic Orchestra, RTV Slovenia Symphony Orchestra (under the baton of En Shaa), Yen Philharmonic, etc. He has recorded numerous solo albums with baroque and contemporary classical music, popular, ethno, and tango music.

The Kapobanda band members are creating an unpredictable emotional atmosphere of Balkan tunes. They test the speed of their fingers and the limits of their instruments through the interweaving of songs from all over the Balkans. They use melodies from classical compositions, tango, klezmer … Their repertoire further includes folk songs from the northern countries. At the first glance the diverse styles, mood and energy of the songs have nohing in common, but the excellent interpretation of classical and jazz-trained members of the ensemble.

Listeners do not remain indifferent to the sounds of the acoustic ethno trio, which, in a humorous way, offers an unforgettable musical experience.
