Christian Erber, NDR (radio station): “DUOMEETING – a sound that can only arise in the cultural melting pot of a metropolis like Berlin. Created by three virtuosos on their instruments, to whom cultural boundaries and musical stereotyping are completely foreign.

With New Urban World Melodic Grooves, Brunn, Karparov and Rainer take their audience on a special kind of musical journey of discovery. Their compositions, in which Balkan rhythms mix with funk, Latin and world sounds, testify to extraordinary virtuosity and joy in playing. They never sound bulky or deafening, but always fresh, lively and sparkling. As you would expect in a pulsating melting pot.

 

 

 

The concert series of the same name initiated by the artist collective Jazzlights and the protagonists of the oldest bar in Friedrichshain Zur Glühlampe will be continued in 2021. Thank you very much for funding the Senate Department for Culture and Europe! From June 13th, 21 we will open the Jazzlights at Glühlampe season. From June to October as Jazzlights goes on Street Open Air on Berlin’s first Umweltstraße right next to the Zwingli Church on Rudolfplatz. Info also at www.facebook.com/JazzlightsGluehlampe

BALKANOVA played  with STOYAN YANKOULOV  in 2010 at the BERLIN BALKAN SLAM-FESTIVAL PFEFFERBERG HAUS  13. The new festival BERLIN BALKAN SLAM in Pfefferberg presented a colorful, traditional and modern variety of BALKAN music. Two Bulgarian musicians played at the festival: the drummer and percussionist Stoyan Yankoulov and the accordion player Martin Lubenov.

 Stoyan Yankoulov played both days,the first with BalkaNova – a trio with a singer from Berlin:Viktoria Lasaroff, and the second witha newly established Festival-Quartet: Stoyan Yankoulovs (drums); Jonathan Robinson (bass); Vladimir Karparov (sax); Andreas Brunn (guitar).
