Sandy Lopicic Orkestar

Sandy Lopicic Orkestar / Border Confusion

Border Confusion

The multicultural diversity of the Balkans appears in a whole new light in the elegiac songs and the wilder pieces by the Sandy Lopicic Orkestar. Under the leadership of pianist and arranger Sandy Lopicic, what we have here is a non-dogmatic fifteen piece big band whose music disregards all borders. Even the line-up is spectacular: the three fantastic female vocalists from Bosnia, Serbia and Kosovo achieve a perfect harmony while maintaining their individuality. These three nightingales are joined by one bunch crazy of musicians: a five-part wind section, piano, bass, drums, accordion, violin and hurdy gurdy. "Brilliant, simply overwhelming," so the Salzburger Nachrichten. This may remind many of Goran Bregovic or Emir Kustirica's No Smoking Orchestra, but we certainly would not hesitate to place the well-honed and masterfully played arrangements and movingly rendered songs of the Sandy Lopicic Orkestar ahead of those two celebrities.
