Galerija "AKVARIJUS", Kosovska Mitrovica
"Jazz i Blues Festival Kroz Objektiv" Izlozba

Izložba fotografija

Otvaranje izložbe fotografija „Džez i bluz festival kroz objektiv“. Povodom 15 godina trajanja North City Jazz & Blues festivala u Kosovskoj Mitrovici biće predstavljeno oko 50 reprezentativnih umetničkih fotografija (različitih autora) koje su snimljene tokom 14 godina festivala. Ova izložba je rezultat petnaestogodišnjeg pažljivog prikupljanja fotografija koje predstavljaju pogled kroz objektiv svih onih koje je ovaj festival inspirisao.

Koncertna fotografija, pored toga što je pokazatelj identiteta muzičara na sceni, sama po sebi govori mnogo i o emocijama i atmosferi trenutka koji, zabeležen kroz objektiv umetnika, ostavlja neizbrisivi trag.

Promo festa - Blues Halter

Blues Halter na NORTHCITYFEST-u u Kosovskoj Mitrovici 2017

Blues Halter je nastao početkom osamdesetih godina. Tokom godina je puno ljudi prošlo kroz postavu, da bi na kraju ostao samo jedini originalni član (Tibor Nađ - gitara i glas).

Blues Halter se uvek nanovo reinkarnisao i uvek drugačije zvučao ostajući veran bluz zvuku. Podjednako je gajio i akustično ali i električno bluz izražavanje. Prvenstveno klubski bend koji ima iskustva i na velikim festivalskim binama.

Kabadayas na NORTHCITYFEST-u

Kabadayas na NORTHCITYFEST-u u Kosovskoj Mitrovici 2017

Kabadayas is latest of the vast varieties of bands that came throughout the years from Macedonia. The unit is a four member formation of the countries most versatile musicians. Kabadayas’ music genre itself is a mixture of the country’s traditional melodic and rhythmical expressions that breaks boundaries by reaching deeply into the spheres of jazz fusion/funk/drum & bass and dub music. The icing of the “cake” is the sound of leading clarinet mastermind sound which can be simply described as Gasparijan meets 21st century jazzy club scene.

The basic strength of the band is in its firm rhythm section performed by the two of the countries most experienced musicians. Djoles sound ranges from heavy duty and funky bass to melodic fretless scales played with the inventive use of bass synthesizer, octave and fuzz pedals which perfectly collaborate with Dinos imaginative range of rhythm innovations and percussion sets. Zorans guitar covers the harmonic side of the music, allowing a true perfection of the tonality of the themes. His modern guitar technique reminds of Henderson’s and Scofields visionary approach on the expressive side of the instrument. All the above brings us to the “sound that bounds” in Gorans clarinet virtuosity. Emotional in it self as an instrument now combined with Gorans academic talent, Kabadayas’ clarinet gives the listener an emotional rollercoaster in sound experience from far eastern magic to “be bop” rush of the west.

Izlozba slika "Djavo plese dzez"

izložba slika

Izložba slika „Đavo pleše džez“, mladog autora Stefana Stevanovića, idejno polazi od pretpostavke da ništa tako precizno kao džez muzika ne može dati objašnjenje o večitoj borbi između života i smrti, kako u prirodi, tako i u izmučenoj duši umetnika. I Stefanovićeve slike, bez zadate teme ili datog ritma, kroz improvizaciju boje, gesta, linije i poteza, kao da se približavaju zvuku džeza, bivaju obogaćene jednim novim jezikom.

Utisci koje gledalac dobija posmatrajući Stefanova platna je gotovo identičan onom koji ima slušalac džez muzike: delo je svaki put drugačije. Ne možeš se odupreti džezu, jer on je prirodni zakon za umetnika, neodoljivi đavolski ples.

In 2002, together with his band “Warning”, he took part in the “Rock Fest” festival for young talents where he won the “Best Guitarist” award handed to him personally by Vlatko Stefanovski, a virtuoso guitar player from Macedonia.

In 2003, Pejčinoski enrolled in the National Musical Academy “Pantcho Vladigherov”, Jazz Department in Sofia, Bulgaria where he was accepted with full scholarship.

Christone "Kingfish" Ingram na NORTHCITYFEST-u

Christone-Kingfish-Ingram na NORTHCITYFEST-u u Kosovskoj Mitrovici 2017

Christone “Kingfish” Ingram was born to Princess Pride Ingram and Christopher Ingram in 1999. Exposed to the rich Gospel music emanating from his family’s church, combined with the Blues he heard being played by musicians in his Delta neighborhood, also learning at the Delta Blues Museum under the tutelage of Daddy Rich and Bill Howl - N - Madd Perry and being a cousin to the great and legendary Country music singer, Charlie Pride, Kingfish became a natural sponge of musical talent.

At the tender age of 6, Kingfish began playing the drums. Three years later at the age of 9, he took up the bass guitar. At the age of 11, he began playing lead guitar. By the age of 14, he had mastered all three instruments and has added vocals to his ever growing list of talents. Kingfish's guitar influences run the gamut of the Blues from the Delta Blues of Robert Johnson, Elmore James, Muddy Waters, and Lightnin' Hopkins to the electric Blues of B.B. King, Albert King, Big Jack Johnson, Albert Collins, Freddie King, Lefty Dizz, Lucky Peterson, Little Jimmy King and Buddy Guy to the Blues Rock of Lance Lopez, Joe Bonamassa, Eric Gales, Stevie Ray Vaughn, The Allman Brothers, Jonny Lang, Steve Marriott, Prince, Michael Burks and so many others. Surprisingly at such a young age, he can play just like his idols and mentors and possesses the additional ability to create a Blues sound entirely his own. It is refreshing to see a young person return to his musical roots and master a genre of music that was created and was popular even before his grandparents’ generation and renew its popularity by breathing new life into the music.

Kingfish has shared the stage with household names such as Bob Margolin, Eric Gales, Rick Derringer, Guitar Shorty, Buddy Guy and many more. He has played festivals and venues all over the U.S. and has performed in six different countries! He's even been a guest on the Rachael Ray Show and the Steve Harvey Show! Kingfish has also performed in Washington D.C. at The White House, right in front of First Lady Michelle Obama! Even though he’s from the Delta, surrounded by all of its plantations and and he travels Highway 49 and Highway 61 on a regular basis, unlike many of his musical predecessors from Mississippi, Kingfish never had to pick cotton or sell his soul to the devil at the infamous Crossroads. Yet, this child prodigy’s soul is possessed with the feeling, passion and fire of the much older men who created the most important genre of American music, the Blues.

Kingfish is a living phenomenon, soon destined to be a living legend!!!
