Nenad Vasilic

Born:

Serbian Nenad Vasilic, who settled in Austria more than 15 years ago, is a bass player and composer. Of course, it goes without saying that his musical roots lie in the former Yugoslavia. His new CD is called "Just Fly". He is a restless composer and prize-winning musician, who lives out his visions in his band formations, both musically and on a personal level. Because the simplest form of communication in the world is music. It negates the need to ask about origins or skin colour.

Nenad Vasilic: The Art of the Balkan Bass

Read "The Art of the Balkan Bass" reviewed by Nenad Georgievski

All About Jazz needs your support

All About Jazz & Jazz Near You were built to promote jazz music: both recorded albums and live events. We rely primarily on venues, festivals and musicians to promote their events through our platform. With club closures, limited reopenings 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 step that will help musicians and venues 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 sticky footer ad). Thank you!
