Franolić – Jovanović – Ćulap

Koncert: piątek 19:00, 18 sierpnia, Dziedziniec Ratusza


Trio Franolić – Jovanović – Ćulap

In the summer of 2015 I met Drazen Franolić and Kamenko Ćulap. They’ve been performing as a duo for over ten years and last year I attended one of their concerts in Croatia. Coincidentally they were staying at the same hotel where I was giving summer courses for the Harmonica School Berlin. Shortly after meeting them, we had our first jam session together. Afterwards, we decided that we should work together and in early 2016 our first album was recorded in Zagreb, Croatia.

Marko Jovanović o sobie: Jestem muzykiem, grającym na harmonijce i założycielem szkoły „Harmonica School” w Berlinie. Od wczesnego dzieciństwa byłem otoczony muzyką, a mój ojciec i wujek kochali bluesa. Nasza czteroosobowa rodzina mieszkała w trzypokojowym mieszkaniu i była pełna muzyki – wszystko od Bałkanów i Heavy Metala po Ravi Shankar, zwykle w tym samym czasie. Czasami udało mi się znaleźć cichy zakątek, w którym mogłem słuchać własnej muzyki na moim odtwarzaczu Sony Walkman, ale wciąż miałem duży wpływ na kolorowe życie muzyczne wokół mnie. Bycie profesjonalnym muzykiem było naturalną konsekwencją mojego środowiska. Poszedłem za moim zainteresowaniem, aby odkryć muzykę we wszystkich jej aspektach i szukałem mojej własnej drogi do wyrażania siebie.

Na początku harmonijka była wyzwaniem na wiele konkretnych sposobów, które są typowe dla tego instrumentu. Nawet dziś jestem wciąż zafascynowany jego unikalnym brzmieniem i zakresem ekspresji. Codziennie czekam na ćwiczenia i naukę.

Z głęboką wdzięcznością,  spoglądam na 25 lat gry na harmonijce. Na spostrzeżenia, liczne możliwości podróżowania i wiele trwałych przyjaźni.

Moim szczerym pragnieniem jest przekazanie tych doświadczeń – i właśnie chodzi o szkołę Harmoniki w Berlinie. Dla mnie nauka, nauczanie i czynna gra muzyka idą w parze, a ja nie mogę się doczekać okazji do grania.

Urodzony: 1978, Monachium.

Instrumenty: harmonijka diatoniczna i chromatyczna, kontrabas i fortepian.

About Marko Jovanović
It’s not uncommon for children to torment their parents with the shrill sound of recorders, raucous sawing of squeaky violins or relentless tinkering on a piano badly in need of tuning. More often than not these instruments of torture wind-up collecting dust in some corner. This was not the case with Marko JovanoviĆ, born with Serbian roots in Munich in 1978. It was an uncle who greatly influenced Marko‘s musical path by giving his 13-year-old nephew a harmonica, and in doing so he hit the bull’s-eye! Marko was fascinated by the tiny, literally ‚handy‘ instrument, and immediately dove into understanding, exploring and experimenting with it.
Thanks to his uncle, a true talent had been awakened.
Marko was already on stage and in the limelight by the time he was 15 years old. This young musical master of the harmonica was already certain about what he was going to be doing professionally. After leaving school he pursued the life of a professional musician. He was equipped with his knowledge of music, life experience and ambition, but above all with his uncanny sense for musical moods and the many facets of the mouth harmonica. After traveling extensively through West Africa, Spain and Serbia, Marko decided to move to Berlin in 1999 and soon found many of his musical partners and a new home.
In 2001 he began a six-year collaboration with the ‚Lars Vegas & The Love Gloves‘ blues band and during this period he gathered international festival and tour experience with this popular, award-winning trio. In 2007 he met a one-of-a-kind musician by the name of Blues Rudy and they quickly became friends and partners. They have worked together as a duo for more than 4 years and with their energetic performances and improvisations they have gained a faithful following across the country. At the same time Marko founded the band ‚Little Sam Lud‘ together with the American guitarist Ryan Donohue. In 2011, following an invitation from the Saharan singer Mariam Hassan, they toured in the Western Sahara and Spain. In 2012 Marko began a very fruitful collaboration with guitarist Branko Galoic and fulfilled a long-standing dream to combine traditional Balkan music with the blues. Audiences are frequently unfamiliar with the special qualities and versatility of the harmonica until they‘ve heard Marko JovanoviĆ perform.
He touches their hearts and seduces them at the same time with his convincing stage presence and his subtle, modest nature. It all seems completely natural, shaped by a musical understanding which occasionally calls for sweet melodies, breathy sounds or sheer energy. Marko JovanoviĆ playfully unifies all of these, sometimes leaving his audience rubbing their eyes and ears in utter amazement.
With Marko JovanoviƑs virtuosity, discover how this small instrument can be powerful and expressive at the same time.
