Dear Orkestar Slivovica Friends and Fans,
Things change, nothing lasts forever. Eight years is a good run for any band!
You will no doubt see and hear more from the various members, and we are not ruling out some future project, or maybe a one-off reunion show someday. But for now this will be it.
Thank you so much to all the fans who have supported and followed us from our humble beginnings, and saw the many transformations of the band over the years as members and artistic visions changed. Thank you to all the musicians who have played with the band, with special thanks to our teacher and mentor Demiran Cerimovic who came from Serbia four times to show us how “trubaci” music is really played. Thank you to all the other artistic collaborators, both musical and visual, especially the many dancers of various styles. And thank you to all the wonderful clients and event producers we have worked with over the years, and all the marvelous festivals and weddings and other celebrations we had the privilege to be part of (if you were planning on booking us again, get in touch and we’ll try to line you up with a suitable replacement band), with a special thanks to Caravan World Rhythms and Transformation Projects for our longstanding partnerships.
But before we go, please join us for a last hurrah at Opa Tsupa festival on October 22 and the Russian Hall (see below).
