    Red face saxophonists from Serbia and ex-yugoslavia

    I found few posts here from the past about some performers from my country... (Ziva Dinulovic...)
    here are some more good ones, feel free to comment...

    Ferus Mustafov (Ferus the King).. he is from fmry (macedonia) but very well known in Serbia too... He plays all balcan styles (including some jazz too) except for saxophone, knows that she also plays flute, trumpet, clarinet, probably a couple of other instruments:




    some young performers:
    Igor Zekutor


    Sasa Ilic Sax

    I always wanted to know how people who are not from the Balkan experience music from the Balkan... Serbian music, especially since I am a Serb, ... it was interesting for me to read what the saxophone lovers think, but I am even more interested in what accordionists and fans of accordion think about the accordion from the Balkan, how do they perceive it? (accordion is here the most popular instrument for the performance of folk music)

    Thank you, xw0lf, for starting this thread & providing such great video links. Yes, I've been a fan of King Ferus for a long time, although I knew of him only as an alto sax master & had no idea he was expert on so many different instruments. Thanks for opening my ears to Igor Zekutor -- the man has chops of steel & great fingers.

    I love all kinds of Eastern European music & have performed Macedonian, Serbian, & Bulgarian tunes; my greatest fondness is for klezmer music from Romania. I enjoy music from Banat with its combined Serbian, Romanian, Hungarian, & Turkish influences.

    I find great inspiration in the skills of virtuoso Balkan sax players & Romanian torogoata players. My mind is continually expanded by exposure to their scales, rhythms, & inventive improvisations -- new yet rooted in folk antiquity.

    What has always fascinated me is how Eastern Europe's history of conquests & migrations is reflected in its music, & how even the most widespread regional styles contain localized variants at the town or village level. I know that contributing influences of Turkish, Roma (Gypsy), and klezmer (Yiddish) musicians have often been overlooked or downplayed as various political factions seek to define national identities; in much the same way that many excellent African-American musicians have had to struggle for recognition in the US.

    As a saxman who appreciates the sound of a tight ensemble, I find accordion to be melodically redundant & harmonically restricting. Others may disagree, & that's fine. It's a big world.

    Working with accordionists early in my pro career convinced me that when a band relies on a single instrumentalist to provide melody, chords, bass, & rhythm, everybody else in the band gets a little sloppy & perfunctory. I prefer it when harmonic changes are implied by the combined monophonic tonalities of individual players -- experience has shown me that rehearsing & performing without a chording instrument intensifies each player's sense of involvement in the total sound. Moments of dissonance & tension, when the lead player can choose to push the implied harmony this way or that way and the ensemble players are focusing hard, trying to read the lead player's mind -- pure heaven to me.

    Mind-blowing stuff !!

    Just wanna note here.... Igor and Ziva and Ferus are playing vintage horns, possibly Amatis or other Eastern European makes.

    Doesn't seem to be slowing 'em down, any....

    Serbian Yakey Sax!
    It looks like another Eastern European he had painted white. Strathon mouthpiece.

    Cool....older Yani ? You should re-record, the gain on the recording device is too high, it is producing a muddy sound, can't really hear the tone well... (nice playin' tho !)

    Maybe so....hard to freeze the frame well with the camerawork jumping all over the place like that, but I thought I saw RTH on the bell keys...
