ABOUT THE MARKOVIC ORKESTAR
www.bobanimarko.com

The quintessential Balkan brass band from Vladicin Han, in Southern Serbia, has once again captured the mantle of “Leading Band in Serbia,” a title for which they have been crowned many times since the late 1980’s. Their music, performed by a thirteen-piece strong orchestra, is wholly defined by their own gypsy lineage, whilst giving a knowing nod towards other musical and cultural backgrounds closely related to Romani traditions. Boban and his Orchestra have won all of the most prestigious accolades available to players in Serbia: ‘Trumpet Maestro’ (2 times), ‘Golden Trumpet’, ‘First Trumpet’, ‘The Best Orchestra’, ‘ The Best Concert’. Most of the members have been presented at the renowned “Dragacevski Sabor” in Guca, Southern Serbia – a festival noted to attract fierce competitions among both the players and audiences of up to 600,000 people. In addition to the 13 albums released so far, the Boban i Marko Markovic Orchestra has performed and been featured in many important feature films.
