WILD STRINGS TRIO DEBUT ALBUM: LOST WEEKEND
“The creation of the universal language of music.” – Bratko Zavrnik, Longplay
“Wolves and Dragons.” – Matej Krajnc, Sigic
Lost Weekend, recorded in 2015, is the fruit of two years of hard work and excited discovery (not to mention three lifetimes of experience) by a trio of composers, arrangers and performers. Jazzed-up Balkan folk tunes, compositions of detailed complexity, and extensive improvisation make up the core of what Wild Strings Trio have created in this, their first studio album. Careful at once to minutely arrange each theme and riff, while leaving a large place to the moment’s inspiration in the solos, the trio has created a unique blend of jazz, classical, balkan and many other genres into a enthusiastic, groovy, deep and touching performance at a high level of proficiency. Each member brings his own musical background and ideas to the table to challenge the others with, weaving a common story to tell to the listener, pushing the boundaries of the conventional into the realm of novelty while never forgetting the love, energy and passion that brought them together.
