Dear music lovers,

The 'autumn 2014' music season starts along with the school season, so here are some updates.

Emmanuel Mann joins Valkania as a bass-player, replacing Nikolay Angarev. Nikolay has been playing with us since 2012 and he has contributed enormously to the high quality of music that the band has produced, especially during the recording of the album Roots - one of the three best World Music albums, according to Indie Acoustic.

When good Vojvodian singer hires a "Tamburashki Orkestar" for his/her concerts and recordings, the combination produces pure magic of meek, beautiful and soothing music that purifies the heart. One of the best examples is Zvonko Bogdan.He sings the Blues of Vojvodina, he tells the stories of its people in a manner that you simply don't want him to stop.

Rock and Blues are my my roots, as much as Balkan music. Actually, in our youth we only listened to Western music. Our own folk songs were seen as simple, old-fashioned, with silly texts - in other words - totally uncool.
