Enjoy Balkan Folk Music with Slovenian Afternoon Tea
Let’s set the mood by enjoying a delicious, traditional, home-made Slovenian afternoon tea together then join us in The Mandala Room for an energizing hour and a half of Balkan music like you have never heard played before.
Music pours out of this trio of musicians – Eva Jurgec (oboe and flute), Uros Jezdic (accordion) and Klemen Bracko (violin and more). The trio are all master practitioners of their instruments and they make the Balkans come alive, playing music from all regions around their Slovenian homeland.
They call themselves “The Folk Embassy” and we are excited to host this incredible musical phenomenon here at The Sound Temple. Come and listen, come and dance, come and experience the most incredible night of music played with passion, with finesse, with such incredible speed that we
guarantee your hands will be clapping and your toes will be tapping.
Eva Jurgec is a classically trained musician and composer of contemporary, world, and experimental music with an interest in the confluence of music with poetry, image and movement.
A graduate of the Academy of Music in Ljubljana in Slovenia, Eva won the prestigious youth Presernova Award for excellence in musical studies and for her mastery of the oboe.
Uros Jezdic is a musician and performer based in Ljubljana, Slovenia. As a master practitioner of Balkan ethno music he has been both a preserver and an innovator with the form. He trained at the Dragan Vasović Vaske Music School in Belgrade and has travelled extensively in Europe, playing the accordion with gypsy musicians in Romania, Macedonia, Bulgaria and Turkey.
Klemen Bracko is a virtuoso violinist who has played in all Slovenian symphonic and opera orchestras since 1999. He was the artistic director and soloist for Symbolic Orchestra, which toured Europe premiering his compositions and performing at the opening of the European Capital of Culture in Murska Sobota.
