Trying to “revive” pictures, the music part of the project has brought together jazz musicians forming an artistic expression which uses both the language of modern jazz and musical heritage of the area in which they create. The repertoire is mostly made ​​up of original compositions as well as compositions of celebrated Serbian jazz artists and Serbian folk songs, arranged and shaped into a whole that reflects jazz in Serbia, as a specific musical expression, but also with the impacts of East and West, classical music and wealthy Balkan folklore.
