DONATE TO THE NEW RECORD HERE (Link at bottom of Page)
As some of you may have heard, there’s a new record in the making… one that we hope will be BECOME an INTERNATIONAL DANCE SENSATION while simultaneously PAYING OUR RESPECTS to the legendary Šaban Bajramović!!!
This band is currently in the process of recording a full-length album to be released in late 2013. While there is no Kickstarter or Indiegogo, we welcome any amount of support you are able to give to this project. Any contribution over $25 will be considered a pre-sale (you’ll get a copy of the album when it comes out). At the bottom of the page, you’ll find a link to PayPal. THANK YOU ALL!!!!!
Currently underway is EVA SALINA‘s first full band recording, a tribute record to the one and only Šaban Bajramović, undisputed king of Romani song, an incredible Southern Serbian Romani singer and composer who passed away in 2008. The record features 10 of Saban’s songs, re-created by a capable and imaginative group of world-class musicians, and breaks free of genre, incorporating different forms of contemporary dance music while saluting and honoring one of Romani music’s all-time greatest voices.
The commanding, luscious, and versatile voice of Eva Salina brings a distinctive new sound to an iconic, heavily masculine repertoire. Eva’s translation of Šaban’s songs is a collaborative effort with some of the brightest lights in NYC, including Frank London (arranging, trumpet, alto horn, keyboards), Patrick Farrell (accordion, alto horn, farfisa, arranging), Ron Caswell (tuba, arranging), John Carlson (trumpet, arranging), Peter Stan (accordion, arranging), and Brandon Seabrook (guitar, arranging).
This band offers a refreshing departure from the traditionalism that so often stops culture in its tracks. These courageous, witty, hard-hitting musicians bring with them distinct musical personalities and lifetimes of diverse musical experience, forming a new and exciting project unlike any other.
