The Goran Ivanovic Group delivers a captivating fusion of traditional Balkan music and acoustic jazz with classical compositional integrity and a harmonic language that is both accessible to the mainstream jazz audience while bringing in substantial portions of the zesty, odd-metered rhythms and the vivid melodic embellishments of Eastern European folk music. Mixing both traditional and jazz instrumentation, adapting both styles to one another so that the conversation between genres is two-sided, their music is imbued with great energy and direction, revealing that the conversation going on is not only between styles, genres and cultures but between the instrumentalists and the audience and most importantly, between the heart and the mind.
