SARAJEVO JAZZ FESTIVAL 2017
"my last day - was full of variety and fascinating surprises. The afternoon set presented En El Amor with Natasa Markovic singing songs from the Sephardic Jewish tradition in Sarajevo. The Sephardic community arrived in Sarajevo 500 years ago after various moves following their expulsion from Spain, and maintained many of their traditions, especially in music. The songs were in a medieval Spanish, Judaeo-Spanish or Ladino, and have a passion and atmosphere of longing reminiscent of Portuguese fado that Markovic brought out fully. The idea of basing the songs in a context of gentle contemporary improvisation with Michel Godard on serpent, an ancient instrument similar in sound to the tuba, and Jarrod Cagwin on drums worked brilliantly." - Tony Dudley-Evans, London Jazz News
