Hailing from New York City's bustling streets, Tavche Gravche merges haunting Macedonian and Mediterranean melodies, both traditional and original, with dynamic improvisational elements; all the while maintaining the explosive danceable rhythms and energy of Balkan music.


Co-presented by Morris Arts

Background

Presenting a fresh take on traditional Balkan and Eastern European music, this NYC – based ensemble merges haunting Macedonian and Mediterranean melodies, both traditional and original, with dynamic improvisational elements; all the while maintaining the explosive dance-able rhythms and energy of Balkan music.

Macedonian-born and Juilliard graduate clarinetist Vasko Dukovski is a concert performer dedicated to breathing new life into the music of his roots. Steeped in both jazz and flamenco, Israeli-born guitarist Dan Nadel provides the fiery textural and harmonic palette for the band’s music. Jazz bassist Daniel Ori, also from Israel, is the trio’s founder, and his prominent sound is its foundation. Together, the trio pushes the boundaries of this unique blend of cultures, rhythms and colors to become an all-encompassing adventure for listeners.

With performances at such stellar venues as The City Winery, the Puffin Center, Caramoor, the NY Sephardic Music Festival and on the main stage of NYC’s fabled Balkan Festival, Zlatne Uste (“Golden Festival”), Tavche Gravche’s album, Our Village, showcases the band and features guest artists, acclaimed clarinetist Ismail Lumanovski and world-renowned trumpeter Frank London.
