"Mrak" - Boban Markovic Orkestar

Boban Markovic Orkestar


Boban Marković’s father was also an amazing trumpet player in his time and he wanted his son to follow in his footsteps. Boban started at the age of 5, by 15 he was already a professional musician. In his twenties he was amongst Yugoslavia’s best - by his thirties he was the king of Balkan brass. Working with Emir Kusturica on soundtracks for his films brought Boban’s fame to every corner of the earth. In 2014 Songlines Magazine added him to their list of all-time best instrumentalists in the world. Boban’s talent never relied on classic musical training, but instead on the gut-level sense of rhythm he was born with and total dedication and passion for his instrument. He and his band have released 14 albums over the last 20 years. His knowledge comes from natural predisposition and straight from the heart. His father Dragutin knew he was destined to become a trumpet player. And he did. A brilliant one, a living legend – the king.
