Let’s be clear: Branko Galoić is not a brass band. He’s a Croatian singer-songwriter who combines brass sounds with a voice reminiscent of Dylan’s and a fondness for gypsy jazz. Now let’s be even more clear: with or without his Balkan influences, his music marks a departure from Fanfare Ciocarlia and Taraf de Haidouks.

Galoić’s journey reflects his free spirit: he was born in Zagreb, adopted by Amsterdam, applauded in Berlin, and welcomed in Paris, which became his home just a year ago.

This unique Croatian artist’s style was shaped by his journey and his creative colleagues; the resulting group is more of a traveling cabaret than a brass band. His clever blend of irony and melancholy bring to mind the Argentine musician Daniel Melingo and Italian singer-songwriter Vinicio Capossella.
