Boban & Marko Markovic Orkestar

October 30th, 2014

Also on Sunday Oct 19th at Town Hall, the 2014 Earshot Jazz Festival presented one of the highlights of the series Boban & Marko Markovic Orkestar.
The quintessential brass Balkan band, and universally acknowledged as the best, BMMO originates from Vladicin Han, southern Serbia, a twelve-piece band wholly defined by their own Roma lineage while giving a knowing nod toward other musical and cultural backgrounds closely related to that of the Romani’s.

Boban and the Orkestar have won all of the most prestigious accolades available to players in Serbia, and the last 8 years have seen
the orchestra perform in excess of 700 shows around the world.

Boban’s son, Marko, a musical phenomenon, joined the ensemble at age 14, in 2002. He has subsequently become the main soloist as well as composer and arranger of new material. Now, with Marko as the visionary, they’re driving off in new directions, transporting the traditions to the world and bringing the world back home. This night of Roma celebration and dancing with the world’s most revered Balkan brass juggernaut is sure to be legendary.
