Two musicians who know how to set off musical fireworks. Atanas Dinovski and Paul Schuberth celebrate the purest form of musical freedom. Trying to shove their music into one stylistic category is futile. The two accordionists know how to move effortlessly between musical environments with elegant and masterful steps. In their pieces they act as bridge-builders with an impressive understanding of how to reconcile the most diverse and the far-flung influences. The ingredients of this duo’s exceptionally colourful and multifaceted musical mix range from jazz to folk to Balkan and even includes tango and new music. They aren’t afraid of daring improvisations, either.
