Vila Madalena

The two musicians of this ensemble connected as early as fall 2011 at a typical, gorgeous Serbian wedding. Like-minded Serbian accordeon player Nikola Zaric, known for his virtuoso style bursting with energy, hit it off with experienced and versatile clarinet player Franz Oberthaler, well known for his highly varied compositions and large range of nuances.
Fully in line with the model of the famous Brazilian bohemian quarter and melting pot Vila Madalena, the music of this ensemble is a mixture of powerful melodies played by a virtuoso and exuberantly on the one hand, but on the other hand also reminds you of the very tender, fragile and charming sound almost resembling chamber music fuelled by the rhythmic and harmonious diversity of the boundless musical treasure of countries most distant from each other.
No matter whether you are listening to the unmistakeable rhythms of the Balkan crossed with the warm-hearted sound of South America or a combination of Flamenco and Yiddish music seasoned with a dash of Jazz.
An exciting and entertaining evening will be guaranteed.
