BALKAN MEETS BERKLEE
I decided that I would make an EP of arrangements of Balkan folk songs, each with different musicians and engineers, and all in different styles. It only took a few days at Berklee to realize that this would be a unique opportunity to collaborate with amazing musicians from all over the world, all with unique personal and musical backgrounds. I wanted my final project to be a complete collaborating between myself and some of these great musicians and engineers, and would function as a true showcase and tribute to my generation at Berklee Valencia. At first I did not know which songs I would decide on and with whom I would work, but as I slowly started meeting more and more people from across the masters programs, the project began taking a more definitive shape in my mind and eventually in practice.
