Musician

Maja Alvanović

Born:

The Majamisty TriO’s music synthesizes classical and jazz elements, and judging by audience reaction it’s a refreshing addition to the jazz music scene. The cooperation of pianist Maja Alvanović, leader of the trio, with the fantastic musicianship of Ištvan Čik (drums and percussion), Ervin Malina, (double bass) and Aleksandra Drobac Čik (guest vocalist) gives wings to this idea and brings it to full fruition. The appierence of Majamisty TriO in 2010 was followed by concerts in Studio ‘1’ of Radio Novi Sad within ‘Jazz Appreciation Month’ organized by the American Corner, also the 26th Jazz Festival in Valjevo and IX International Jazz & Blues festival Geza Balaz Gari in Kikinda, as well as several clubs in Novi Sad. Their first album ‘Mistyland’ with twelve tracks (eleven originals and the cover of jazz standard ‘Misty’ by Errol Garner) invites lovers of new jazz sound in the walk through the wideness of Mistyland, imaginary world of acoustic paintings.
