Tamara Obrovac quartet, band reunion 15 years after, and re-interpretation of old compositions from a new, more mature artistic prospective...
With the release of „ULIKA“ in 1998, Tamara Obrovac Quartet (Tamara Obrovac, Matija Dedić, Krunoslav Levačić and Žiga Golob) presented for the first time Tamara's new way of thinking and composing which combines inspiration by the local Istrian music and dialect with the universal jazz expression. The reunion of the quartet at a concert in Grožnjan (summer 2011) gave life to a new creativity and a different way of interpreting old compositions. The re-found joy of making music together, expressed through virtuoso playing, unlimited freedom of expression, humour and improvisation, characteristic of all members of the quartet, definitely confirmed their desire for a new (old) collaboration. The idea of „ULIKA revival“ project is to gather now mature musicians from Tamara Obrovac Quartet in order to re-interprete old compositions from a new, more mature artistic prospective. This project once again brings together Tamara Obrovac and Matija Dedić, who are both excellent and awarded artists with successful careers which meet from time to time. The intention is to release „ULIKA revival“ CD, followed by further concert promotion. And during 2013, was folowed by several concerts in Germany, Croatia and Serbia.
Concert promotion starts with folowing concerts:
