Dutch-Bosnian sevdahrockers Projekt Rakija play at ~ bougez bougez ~
Bosnia is where the roots of Projekt Rakija lie. Frontman Igor Sekulović fled from his birth country to the Netherlands as a child during the 90’s war, and started a big band some 15 years later. Consisting of 10 musicians, a cartoonist and a graphic designer, Projekt Rakija finds a refreshing recipe for renewing the traditional Bosnian blues, sevdalinje, by crossing genres, bringing together artistic disciplines, and adding non-traditional sounds and instruments. The authentic balkan dance music is combined with very energetic rhythms, a rock attitude, bass drums and brass kicks.
Watch their final song closing the Sziget festival, where legendary balkan bands play balkan music in the middle of the balkans, and you’ll realize Dutch insanity added to the true spirit of a hardcore balkan feast is a guarantee for getting completely nuts at the end of the night. Right at the moment it’s time for the party, with resident dj’s from binair01 and Radio Taxi.
