MAJOVCI GROUP (MK)
Saturday 07.07.12 - 23:00 - Gloria
Galicnik in western Macedonia has its own summer festival. Each year during the festival, a particularly lucky couple are married during a Galicka wedding – a ceremonious event, which includes the entire mountain village.
This ceremony is accompanied by a unique form of wedding music, an almost trance-like sound played on a zurla – a kind of obo with the same sound as bagpipes – and giant tapan drums.
Majovci Group’s music and band members are direct descendants of this tradition, which dates back more than a thousand years. With this fascinating dance orchestra, you’ll get an exotic breath of air from Eastern Europe’s colourful past.
Band schedule is ready in May
Roskilde Festival releases the time schedule in May, if everything works out at least somewhat according to plan.
We don’t do it until then to make the best schedule possible for our audience. When we, for various reasons, are forced to make changes late in the process, we have a better chance at putting together a programme that considers both the spreading of genres, the performer's touring plans and safety at the festival.
