Biography

Vladicin Han, Southern Serbia

Boban Marković (Бобан Марковић) is a Roma trumpet player and brass ensemble leader from Serbia, frequently recognized as the greatest trumpet player to emerge from the Balkans. He and his brass band have received world acclaim and won numerous awards.

Boban Marković Orchestra has been the leading brass band in Serbia over the last 17 years. They are from Vladicin Han, Southern Serbia, which is obviously heard in their music. They have won several of the most important prizes (“Golden Trumpet”, “First Trumpet” and “The Best Orchestra”) at the “Brass bands meeting and competition” in Guča, called “Dragačevski Sabor”, which has been held every August in Central Serbia, since 1961. Every year “Sabor” gathers 20 of the best bands from all parts of Serbia, as well as some 300,000 people in the audience. Winning there means more jobs for the bands, but also is so prestigious, that no one misses the festival and all the bands play for free.

Boban Marković Orkestar won the “Best Orchestra” prize at 40th “Sabor” in Guca, August 2000. They won the “Best concert 2000.” prize for their concert with Lajko Felix. In Guča, at “Dragačevski Sabor 2001” Boban Marković won “The First Trumpet”, what is officially the best prize there and the most wanted among the musicians. It was the first time ever that any musician there got all five marks “10” from all of the jury members. Since winning, he has decided to stop competing.
