Dave will be celebrating the release of his ninth album, "Balkan String Projekt" with the full band from the studio recording. The evening's repertoire will include the entire album of acoustic Balkan Folk-Fusion in addition to some of Dave's originals and some surprises;)
One night only! You won't want to miss this special evening of acoustic string band Balkan Fusion at it's finest from Dave's talented ensemble of musicians. Jump on a musical gypsy caravan and be taken away to the beautiful melodies of Romania, Serbia, Greece, Moldova, Turkey, Bulgaria, and beyond!
The all star band features violin prodigy Peter Mellinger, upright bassist Bill Sullivan, gypsy guitar wizard Zac Misri , 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 this 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 uniqueness of the sound. Michael Martinez adds a new age classical jazz piano sound on select tracks, taking the arrangements to an alternate dimension.
Dave's fresh take on songs of the old world will surprise and delight both fans of the mandolin and Traditional Balkan Folk music. Balkan folk dancers will love the diverse variety of Coceks, Geamparale's, Ratchentitsa's, Kopanitsa's, Hora's, and a host of other assymetrical rhythms to dance the night away to! Be the first on your block to get a copy of the Balkan String Projekt album at the official CD release party Friday January 19th at the Pacific Grove Art Center!
