Pocket Globe in September: Jazz Introduces the Weekend of Traditional Music

Published in category: News

In the Egység Cultural Station, on 26 and 27 September, two a cappella spectacles will be announcing this September’s edition of pocket music excursions within the Pocket Globe project, with special focus on the performances that marked June.

In the new podcast, Voja Malešev is taking us to the world of jazz and experimentation with other music genres such as ska and groove, implemented in the music of the local, Novi Sad singer-songwriter bands (Deep Steady and Dragon’s Fuel), which marked this June’s Pocket Globe. You can find the podcast on this link.

Jazz at the beginning of the week is actually introducing us to the sounds of traditional and spiritual music, which we’ll have a chance to hear during the weekend – a female vocal trio Rođenice will perform on Saturday, 26 September, starting at 8 p.m., while the Sveti Serafim Sarovski chamber choir will perform on Sunday, 27 September, also at 8 p.m.

Ethnomusicologists and performers of traditional music are members of the female vocal trio Rođenice. The audience will hear songs from their new album.

The next day, the audience will have an opportunity to hear exceptional vocals and diverse repertoire of the male chamber choir from Zrenjanin, Sveti Serafim Sarovski, real gem of spiritual and religious music.

Organisers kindly ask all visitors to adhere to all measures in order to maintain health and enjoy cultural events. Visitors are obliged to wear masks during all events. The maximum number of visitors, which is 500 people in public spaces and indoors, is being monitored during events.

The first production project of the Egység Cultural Station, Pocket Globe, began in September 2019 with the idea to familiarize the audience with diverse music genres from different parts of the country, region and world, such as world music, new, copyright, jazz, experimental and traditional music. With the pandemic at hand, Pocket Globe got its online version as well, i.e. podcasts, which created new opportunities for enjoying music and built new audience.
