“Burning From the Inside” is the original production of this year’s ESTAM World Music Festival. A group of immensely creative and experienced musicians from different crossroads of the globe has come together to craft the one-of-a-kind musical experience. A fusion of emotions, traditions, and distinctive artistic voices that transcend cultural divides. As a creation under the musical direction of Multikultivator’s founder, Vladimir Djordjevic, it is a perfect program to mark Multikultivator’s 20th anniversary.
At the core of this extraordinary musical adventure stands
Radik Tyulyush, a Tuvan throat singing and folk reeds
virtuoso, originating from the Republic of Tuva in central Asia.
A Jimi Hendrix on the igil (traditional Tuvan string instrument) Radik fuses enchanting melodies and rhythms that evoke the essence of Tuvan shamanic heritage and nomadic life. Renowned for his prowess with a range of traditional instruments, Radik's musical journey spans from directing the Tuvan National Orchestra, contributing to Tuvan rock group Yat-Kha, and joining the world-famous Huun Huur Tu.
Radik seamlessly bridges the gap between Tuvan tradition and contemporary music, giving this project a truly unique and captivating voice.
A masterful performer, composer, and arranger from Macedonia stands as a remarkable figure in both the Balkan tradition and jazz. His charismatic and open-hearted approach radiates pure love, infusing a distinct voice into his projects with a blend of virtuosity and intricate yet enthralling rhythmic patterns.
Known for his exceptional talent on the double bass, he has collaborated with luminaries like Vasil Hadžimanov, Božo Vrećo, Ismail Lumanovski, and Ibrahim Maloof, while also composing music for films and theater productions.
Currently, he is crafting music for the Serbian National Theater's upcoming play "Skupljači perja“ where his ensemble of accomplished musicians will deliver captivating live performances. .
The dynamic heartbeat emanates from the exceptional talents of Lav Kovač, a Serbian percussionist and drummer, who brings a fresh rhythmic dimension with his extensive experience across diverse musical genres and cultures.
