We have been looking forward to this a long time and now it’s time. We’re really happy and proud to be in this program.
Watch a trailer
At a dinner a couple of years ago Göran from Süperstar Orkestar began speaking to Jovan Radomir from SVT about an idea of Jovan’s. He wanted to do a film abuot our band and preferably shoot it in the Balkans, because he knew we like to go there.
From then on the idea started to live and after several meetings it was decided that the series was going to be made with the Roma team on SVT, since all the best trubaci musicians are Roma.
In the beginning of August we went to Serbia with Jovan Radomir, the producer Wanda Benjelloul, photographer Ellinor Hallin, sound engineer Jonas Wikstrand and friend, insider, specialist and musician Mendo Selman. We started off with a day of playing in Belgrade. Then followed some really hot days in Guca stuffed with encounters, music, food, struggle, cultural clashes and joy. The festival was dense with great bands and musicians and we made some new friends as usual.
At last! Valborg, club gig, TV-premiere
