Biography

Musician Dejan Ilijic pulls listeners through a deep groove of love, life and loss. Ilijic and his highly permeable musical soul has been punctured and inundated by dozens of musical traditions, from his grandmotherÂ’s traditional lullabies in lilting 7/8 time to the pounding beats of Coltrane and the soothing tug of John ScofieldÂ’s fusion. He has the languages of music under his fingers, from Mozart to Piazzolla, Bill Frisell to Moby, and the beat of his people is in the simple twist of his wrist across the black and whites. From Macedonia to New York, this completely original music is both new and old, gorgeous in its execution and its implications. His projects and ambitions run deep, and the heart in everything he touches runs deeper.
