Balkan-Caribbean Night:
Jan Kus & The Slavo Rican Assembly



The new project of the internationally acclaimed Slovenian saxophonist Jan Kus, Slavo Rican Assembly, explores the similarities and differences between the music of the Puerto Rican (and generally, Caribbean) and Slavic and Balkan cultures, merging them into a cohesive, brand-new sound that is unique in the current music market place.  The band members (2 Slovenians, 1 Venezuelan, 3 Puerto Ricans, plus a Serbian vocalist) combine the musical traditions from the Balkans and Slavic folk songs with the musical traditions of the Caribbean, synthesizing them seamlessly in a never-before-heard, attractive, heartfelt and powerful rhythmical mix!

Puerto Rican native García organically blends folkloric bomba rhythms and latin jazz in a myriad of satisfying ways. His simpatico crew of youngbloods push the envelope on García’s debut for ZOHO Music. -- Bill Milkowski
