Bora Dugić, Frula
Gyula Csík, Cimbalum
BAL.KAN, the ambitious project of the eminent Catalan Maestro Jordi Savall, is a major musical and historical feat. A humanitarian as much as a musician, Savall’s renown is built on years of meticulous research and impeccable musicianship as well as innovative publishing and recording enterprises in which he constantly bridges the gap between cultures and music styles and delves deep into little known historical cultural figures and events, neglected by most researchers and little known to general public. His interest in the Balkans is not new, but after the war in the 90s, it became more intensely dedicated and profound. Together with his Ensemble Hespèrion XXI he brings together singers and instrumentalists from all over the Balkan region and with the program he chooses, plunges into this diverse but unique, fascinating musical universe.
As the concert had to be cancelled due to corona pandemia we are looking forward to meeting four musicians of Jordi Savall’s ensemble.
Bora Dugić and Gyula Csík will present themselves, their instruments and their music in four short films, that will be shot in Budapest and Belgrad.
Bora Dugić was born in Đurđevo, Serbia. During his 50-year-long musical career he has taken the art of frula, the Serbian shepherd flute, all over the world. He actually considers frula his fate. His beautiful sound is characteristic for the Balkans, but more specifically for the Serbian central region of Šumadija.
Gyula Csík comes from a famous family of musicians. Hailed as one of the Hungary´s most prominent cymbalom performers, thanks to his musicianship and impeccable technique, Gyula is a frequent guest in many musical projects all over the world. He has played with gypsy bands, but is also at home in classical and jazz music. He is currently the solo cymbalom performer of the Hungarian National Gypsy Orchestra.
Amira Medunjanin and Nedyalko Nedyalkov started with their concert at Jun 19th.
