Jump on a musical gypsy caravan and be taken away to the beautiful melodies of Romania, Serbia, Greece, Moldova, Turkey, Bulgaria, Albania, and beyond!
The all star band features violin prodigy and Turkish banjo player Elijjah McCullar and multi-talented local favorite Michael Martinez on piano! Band leader, singer, and mandolinist Dave Holodiloff loves returning to his roots and playing shows in Pacific Grove whenever he can. Join “Hometown Holodiloff” for an unforgettable night of song and celebration!
About the new “Balkan String Projekt” CD: The concept for the album came about after Dave befriended traveling guitar player Zac Misri on tour in the USA with his Balkan-Gypsy Jazz Band from Hungary. After playing a few Balkan tunes together and feeling the incredible synergy between the strings of the guitar and mandolin, Dave quickly added bandmates Bill Sullivan (bass) and Peter Mellinger (violin) to the mix and the Balkan String Projekt was born!
Going beyond the old world melodies and dance rhythms of Bulgaria, Romania, and Turkey, the album often blurs the lines between jazz, jam, and traditional Balkan folk. Furthermore, the common theme of stringed instruments playing the lead melodies and improvisational solos adds to the unique sonic landscape the group is able to create. Michael Martinez adds a new age classical jazz piano sound on select tracks, taking the arrangements to an alternate dimension.
