An exhibition dedicated to the life and work of Šaban Bajramović in the world's most prestigious jazz museum, in New Orleans

The exhibition dedicated to the life and work of Šaban Bajramović will be opened on Thursday, June 13, at 6 p.m. in the world's most famous jazz museum in New Orleans, in the presence of high-ranking American dignitaries and representatives of the Serbian diaspora.

Saban will find himself in the company of his idols like Louis Armstrong, Ray Charles and James Brown, as the undisputed king of Balkan soul and blues and the world king of Roma music.

In addition to personal items, his records, cassettes, CD releases, posters, books and magazines about him will be on display, as well as his original statuette, which the Nashville Jazz Festival traditionally awards to performers for the best fusion of jazz with other genres.

Part of the exhibition will also present photos of some of the laureates and winners of the statuette, such as Solomon Bark, Blues Brothers, Al Di Meola and Candy Dalfer. Visitors will be able to see a short film about Saban, and listen to his songs via QR codes.

The band of Peter Stan, a Roma artist who has lived in New York for decades and who had four joint performances with Saban during his famous tour of America, will also perform at the opening.

The exhibition is the result of a five-year agreement between the director of Nashville and the director of the New Orleans Jazz Museum, Greg Lambosi, who last year finally visited the Nashville Festival and Jazz Museum and learned about the life and work of Šaban Bajramović.

Jelena Ivanjac, the representative of Nishville in America, made an immeasurable contribution to this exhibition with specific agreements on the exhibition itself and the visual identity of the exhibition.

The exhibition will be open for the next 6 months.




Mite Stoilkov, vocalist in the "Jay tribute band", which will keep Jay's songs alive: "It is a great responsibility, but also an honor"

As exclusively learned, the famous composer Aleksandar Radulović Futa founded a "Jay tribute band" in honor of the deceased singer, who is already ready to start performing, and who will perform exclusively the hits of the legendary artist from Dorčol, signed by him and his wife, the undisputed hitmaker Marina Tucakovic. Members of the band are Jay's younger daughter Maria Ramadanovski, Jay's best friend from the show for 25 years, Zoran Jagodic Rule, as well as Macedonian singer Mite Stoilkov, who now reveals how he feels about it.

Mite, how did you react when Futa called you?

- First of all, I must say that it is a great pleasure to be here today, thanks to Mr. Aleksandar Radulović Futa and the whole team. So I'm really surprised to be part of this team. However, Jay had his own style, so this is a big responsibility.

What is the responsibility, do you have stage fright? The song is so meaningful and Jay's discography is so vast.

- I have nervousness and great responsibility. But it is a great honor for me to sing his songs at performances. Simply, he always lives with us.


The Influence of Roma Music on Culture in Serbia.

Since there are almost no written traditions about the Roma, what has certainly remained is oral, i.e. Music passed down from generation to generation. We will come to the conclusion that music is actually everything for Roma. More precisely, the way in which they live for centuries and pass on the customs of their people and their culture. But not only on their own culture, but also on the culture of the people they live with in all the countries of the world, especially in Serbia. Watch our TV story! –

Roma Rock School is a non-profit organization based in Skopje, founded in May 2017 by music enthusiast Alvin Salimovski.
