The speed, dynamics and unique Eastern flavour of their music has helped them gain international popularity.Their musical style borrows freely from Turkish, Bulgarian, Serbian and Macedonian folk music.

“This intriguing "water-borne" voyage runs the gamut from more classically-tinged interpretations to straight-ahead and improvised jazz. Along that journey we are treated to a highly inspired and masterfully presented performance.”

Dr. Paul Sarcich

“This is joyous stuff; an intelligent, coherent crossover disc, performed with phenomenal punch. Brilliantly recorded too – what’s the point of assembling a collective of virtuoso brass players if they can’t make your ears bleed ?”

Graham Rickson

“An absorbing selection of refined choices and inspirational highlights. Marvellous."
