“A gorgeous pairing… the two play with such serene authority that the listener is almost afraid to take a breath… quietly compelling and deeply felt music.” All About Jazz

 One of the world’s finest concert accordionists, Bosnian-born Merima Ključo, and an acclaimed guitarist of Bosnian, Serbian and Croatian origins, Miroslav Tadić – two celebrated instrumentalists ruminate on their common roots and shared loves of traditional Balkan and classical music with original works and arrangements of Erik Satie, Manuel de Falla, and the mournful music of sevdah—sometimes called ‘Bosnian blues’.

All ticket prices include standard fees.
