ABOUT V3

Led by Vladan Mijatovic (Piano), V3 is a Serbian Jazz-Folk Trio based in New York City.
Freshly graduated from Berklee College of Music other two members, Milos Branisavljevic (Drums) and Akos Forgacs (Bass) together with Vladan are pulled into the whirlpool of the most demanding Jazz scene in the New York City,

As this is the time in the music where everything is a mishap and fusions are born every day, V3 is admirably bending boundaries between traditional Eastern European, very specific and distinguish (Balkan) folk music and contemporary Jazz, taking the traditional “temper”, odd rhythms and lyrical melodies of such music and adventurously teleporting them into the "now”, the present time of, let’s call it “World Music.”

Being brought up in that part of the world where music is ornamental, melodious and vastly colorful, man is often bestowed with such a unique skills and atypical abilities in music. The musicians featured in “V3” including a special guest featured on a couple of tracks, Ismail Lumanovski - Clarinet, are among today's most accomplished musician from that part of that world. They have amply demonstrated their skills by touring, playing, enjoying one of the humans biggest miracles called music and by creating entertainment for a mass audience, all around the world. So what melodies, harmonies, and cadences might haunt their new album? Vladan and the members of “V3” offers an answer to those questions with the first recording of their new works called “Folk Legacy" a medium that can perhaps reveal a Balkan musician's truest voice.
