ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Featuring Lauren Osborn as Brija
Liel Bar-Z as Danijela
David Adams as The Vizier

Featuring special guest Ivan Vukadinovic on guitar.

Janissary is a 3 act rock opera. It features 5 characters: Brija, the Daughter, Danijela, the Mother, Bogdan, the Father, The Vizier and a small appearance by the Black Monk. There are numerous Balkan themes and allusions woven into the story.

The practice of the Ottomans randomly taking Balkan children from their homes and raising them far away to become Janissary soldiers was called Devshirme, the blood tax. I have taken a few liberties with historical details, so do not take this opera as being completely historically accurate.
