Džambo Aguševi & OrchestraMacedonia
21.11.2020 / online
Džambo has risen to become the most widely celebrated Macedonian musician since the late Esma Redžepova. He began leading his own band as yet another of those fiery Balkan trumpet talents, but after his group won the first place in the prestigious Guça band festival in 2011 he is aiming for much broader acceptance for his band from Skopje in North Macedonia.
Džambo’s sound developed as a result of his cultural background and varied musical taste. While his initial musical interest was deeply rooted in the brass band traditions of the southern Balkans, he is listening to Jazz, Funk, Turkish music and movie soundtracks. All that Džambo combines with music ideas using his gypsy heritage that resulted in his own distinctive sound.
In last few years, the trumpet prodigy Džambo is packing out festival dance floors across Europe
as the leader of his Aguševi Orchestra. His latest ferocious new album “Brasses for the Masses” reached Number 1 at the Transglobal World Music Chart in May 2020.
