Internationally renowned guitarists from Montenegro, Srdjan Bulatović and Darko Nikčević return to New York City
and Carnegie Hall
on October 25 in a concert produced by LeitmotivArts
The duo has performed for both national and international audiences for more than 25 years, presenting their original pieces invoking the languages" of classical and flamenco guitar. While varied in terms of character, style, rhythm and tempo, the original compositions from their most recent album “Balkan, Mediterranean, Orient”, which will be performed at this concert, share a common thread of Montenegrin traditional music, movie soundtracks, world music, and popular contemporary movements.
Their return to Carnegie Hall comes following a sold-out debut in 2016 and the release of their latest album to critical acclaim earlier this year.
Danijela Milić, founder of LeitmotivArts who has produced numerous cultural and music events promoting artists from the Balkans in the United States said announcing the concert:
Last year’s concert was a dream come true and an opportunity to showcase musicians from Montenegro in the LeitmotivArts series of concerts I produce at Carnegie Hall. The reaction of the diverse international audience, multiple standing ovations and encores are a testament to the quality of the duo’s performance and musicianship that were on display. I cannot wait to see what they have prepared for the upcoming event which promises to be dynamic and exciting.”
The concert is produced by LeitmotivArts with the support of the Consulate General of Montenegro in New York and the Ministry of Culture of Montenegro.
The show is on Wednesday October 25 at 8:00pm and tickets are on sale on Carnegie Hall website.
