Jazz pianist/composer Tihomir Stojiljkovic was born in Leskovac, Serbia. In his debut album „Solo“ we discover the treasures of Balkan musical heritage, tastefully reinvented through the language of modern jazz.
At the age of six, Tihomir started playing mostly traditional music on the accordion. By the age of sixteen, he improvised in various musical genres on keyboards. In his early twenties, he developed his own piano style that he would later qualify as Balkan jazz.
Tihomir is a self educated-jazz musician, who was raised in a not so jazzy environment and barely had the use of a real piano
