BandWorld

The Balkans for the World Music night at the jazz club. People eat a little, drink a little, chat a little, but really come hear the music. Songs, rhythms, improvs, styles, with intensity, authenticity, and sincerity. Musicians who know the material and love to play it.

And we can play for your outdoor festival. We'll bring someone to lead dances. People will be on their feet.

Look at our web site www.gogofski.com ... we keep that up to date

Biography

The members of the band have been playing Balkan music for decades. Mostly playing for dances. Moving now in a concert direction.

Influences: Esma, Ferus, Vidanka, Tale, Vaska, Koco, Aleksandar. (Maybe you've heard of Esma, Ferus.) These are some of our sources in Balkan music.

And I had some great time with Dalip in Ohrid this summer. Very Albanian sounds.

I'm telling you how real we are.

Discography

Listen here or on our website to our recent live recordings.

(Our demo CD is with our previous singer, and too out of date to send you to ...)

Set List
