MUSICIAN Active since:

Hashima

Hashima is a band that was formed with the idea to use the concepts of free improvisation in a Jazz Quartet combo. Improvisations are gravitating around original themes as well as presenting the audience with the specific arrangements of less known compositions that are inspiring the band. The group has a specific sonor quality: double bass, saxophone, drums and a semi-acoustic jazz guitar. Four different instruments and sensibilities are found in a form bared of tradicional genre qualities with the content inspired by a faraway abandoned island in Japan – Hashima. Srđan Mijalković – Tenor Saxophone

MUSICIAN Born:

Tihomir Stojiljkovic

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

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, shelter in place and an uncertain future, we've pivoted our platform to collect, promote and broadcast livestream concerts to support our jazz musician friends. This is a significant but neccesary effort that will help musicians now, and in the future. You can help offset the cost of this essential undertaking by making a donation today. In return, we'll deliver an ad-free experience (which includes hiding the bottom right video ad). Thank you.
