Epic, cinematic, dramatic Alvanovic … capable of knocking you off your feet. ALL ABOUT JAZZ
unique lyrical style ‘’often melancholic, sometimes exuberant but always enchanting’’ mostly thanks
to the leading pianist Maja Alvanovic. Maja’s musical expression originates in the author’s long
experience in classical music and her affinity to jazz. Moreover, she bravely turned to composing
instead of perfectioning her playing with standard jazz repertoire. Maja connects the separate
worlds of delicate classical sensibility and the contemporary European jazz, spiced up by the hints
of a Balkan musical heritage.
On that path, she has the mighty reinforcement - the experienced double bass player Ervin Malina,
drummer Ištvan Čik and occasional vocalist Aleksandra Drobac whose voice is
treated an instrument equal to the others.
Majamisty recorded two CD’s
Mistyland and Love which were higly praised by some of the most prestigious magazines.
Simply by looking at the name of the ensemble ‘’Majamisty’’ we come across the direction of where this
music is going to take us – somewhere In between the mist of subtle moods and emotions, but at the
same time this music is full of surprises and sudden turns. Just like walking by the Danube,
when Suddenly Japan
appears in front of you.
