The Franolić Ćulap Jovanović trio performs original compositions inspired by Arabian, Turkish, Balkan and Indian music, as well as blues and jazz. The sound they create is directly influenced by their native region, the Balkans. Their main starting point was the Balkan sentiment and local folk music. They then went on to complete their expression with individual interests of each musician - jazz, blues and ethno. The meditative oud and the warmth and melancholy of the harmonica are seamlessly imbued with the exotic percussion’s rhythm.
Great album. A mixture of some really heavy tracks Vertikala & Luka Čeh), an acoustic instrumental (Stepenice, Zvezde), the more ambitious epics (Univerzum Zna & Gilmore), plus the distinctly Floyd-influenced Prolaz. Nice guitar work too. Something for everyone on one album. jamroom
