Blending music, dance and storytelling, Eno balado, prosim! (A Ballad, Please!) intertwines the traditions of Slavic cultures and flamenco.
Stories interspersed with ballads bring together vocalist, harpist and versatile artist Zvezdana Novaković and Urška Centa, flamenco dancer and performing artist. The deeply expressive duo’s engrossing and skin-rippling repertoire of songs, musical settings of conversations, rhythms and melodies is imbued with Slavic character, Balkan culture and flamenco. Sound morphs into movement and gives birth to soulful, irrepressible dance that hits every member of the audience right in the viscera.
