Zlatne Uste & Novi Hitovi
Add to Calendar
From Kolos to Kusturica, experience the rich sounds of driving Balkan brass. Zlatne Uste (Golden Lips) is an internationally known group of American-born musicians playing traditional music of the Balkans, primarily representing Serbian, Macedonian, Bulgarian and Romany (Gypsy) traditions. Four-time invited guest at the Dragachevo Brass Festival in Gucha, Serbia, the 12-piece band is among the foremost presenters of traditional Balkan dance music in the United States. Each year Zlatne Uste hosts and produces the Golden Festival, New York's biggest and best Balkan music festival with an astounding 40 or more bands and something for everyone.
Novi Hitovi ("New Hits") is a brass band from New York City specializing in Macedonian/Serbian Romani and Turkish party music. Founded in 2017, the group has shaken the dancefloors at venues such as Engine Room (Times Square) Zlatne Uste's Golden Festival, and the EEFC's Balkan Camp each year, collaborating with master musicians such as Demiran Cerimovic and Nizo Alimov, and growing in strength, size, and musicality. As it stands now, the group is roughly 10 members, led by trumpeter and midhorn player Aaron Kisslinger, and including drummer Matt Moran (Slavic Soul Party!), clarinetist Ersan Mamudoski (Elem All Stars), saxophonist Tano Brock (Sarma Brass Band, Zlatne Uste), Dan Schelifer (What Cheer? Brigade) and a handful of other all-star musicians. Each member brings a unique flavor, crafting a sound that respectfully draws on the various musical traditions of Roma in the Balkans and Turkey while innovating and infusing elements of Popular music in the United States and abroad.
