Svetlana Spajic Group
Svetlana Spajic Group is a powerful re-discovery of forgotten vocal idioms, Dinaric second interval strikes and unexpected harmonies. What brought them the reputation of “traditional avant-garde” is their faithfulness to the old principles of traditional singing through uncompromising risky performances of great emotional and physical impact. An ultimate control and spontaneity in one.

“It is the Voice of the very root of Serbian traditional singing and its a cappela performing, the Voice of the supernatural tone and unbelievable power. We can rarely hear such top performance of the song art with such fantastic voices.”Karoline Janicek, ‘Kulturforum’, Balkan Fever Festival, Vienna
