JAMIRKO & FRIENDS ON CONGRESS SQUARE ON 30TH OF JUNE
JAMirko will again - on 30th of June on the main stage on Congress Square - find himself in the mix with Slovenian musical friends. For this occasion, he has prepared a special mixture with guests, with whom he used to create over the recent past with a result of creating a lot of good music. Murat & Jose, Maya and Tosca Beat will join him on stage.
Murat & Jose are among the most successful and recognizable names of the Slovenian hip hop scene. JAMirko has been working with them since 2001, when their first album V besedi je moč (Power lies in the word) came out.
For this occasion, they will present together for the first time a new video for the last common single, called Nekineki, created in collaboration with young visual artists.
Maya is one of the most talented female vocalists in Slovenia and the founder of Slovenian soul and RnB. Maya and JAMirko have been musically socializing for a long time, in 2014 they created a recording "Ujeta", that was presented for the sixth compilation »We have good music (Imamo dobro glasbo) – Val014«, organized by the radio programme Val 202. This time, they will present a new Drum & Bass title "Liquid Love" for the first time.
TOSCA BEAT is a project, where opera singing and classical music fuse with urban rhythms and popular club electronic music. The musical part is presented by three academic opera singers Zala Hodnik, Urška Kastelic and Eva Pavli. Beside the singers, the stage also hosts three classica instrumentalists - academic cellist Žan Beljan, violinist Luka Beljan and academic pianist Kristina Golob and the »maestro DJ« that is academic violinist JAMirko, who works as a DJ conductor through mixing the electronic “beats”. On June 1st, their first album with the same title was published, combining the opera/classical and electronic/digital world.
JAMirkoSESSIONS are musical events, where JAMirko invites musicians and vocalists in his role of a DJ and establishes an improvisation relationship in a true "jam session" manner. This time, he will be jamming with an all-round artist, DJ and vocalist daMARiS, and with Jaka Birsa, the acknowledged saxophonist of the younger generation.
