Kocani Orkestar L'orient est rouge (CD)
Kocani Orkestar comes from the city of Kocani, in the new Republic Of Macedonia (ex-Yugoslavia). Performed by two trumpets, three tubas, saxophone, clarinet, zurla (traditional oboe) and percussion, their style of music is aptly described in their region as Romska Orientalna Musika - "Rom" meaning "Gypsy". It is a potent mixture of powerful brass band sounds, Turkish/Bulgarian rhythms (including characteristic asymetrical time signatures such as 7/8, 9/8 etc., which are sometimes called "Aksak" in traditional Turkish music), and Eastern-style solos which are at the same time very skillful, inspired and wild.
