Balkan accordion from Denmark

Post by maugein96 » Sun Aug 05, 2018 10:45 pm

Whilst browsing through the Danish internet, found this accordionist called Lelo Nika, a Serbian Romani player who lives in Denmark.

He plays the Serbian 6 row "Dugmetara" B system CBA accordion, and is unusual in that he plays in the Romanian style, with cimbalom (the dulcimer type instrument). He is acknowledged as one of the finest exponents of the Serbian accordion. His bass player is Danish.

Two clips. The first one is mercifully short for those of you who just don't like that sort of music.

If you get past the first one, have a listen to Serbian "jazz/blues" in the second clip. I guarantee you'll hear accordion sounds you've never heard before. (if it's too boring just go to 3.50 and listen to the end part)
