Liner notes by Marina Trisic Martris

Ballades of the East, original music by Serbian-born singer-songwriter Martris, in collaboration with pianist Rudjer Glavurtic from Croatia, is a set of contemporary world music numbers with piano and voice. Through her poetry and melodies, through her writings and art, Martris is searching for identity and belonging. Inspired by Slavic and Serbian tales and myths, she searches for deeper belonging by exploring her culture of origin while at the same time questioning it in order to transcend its boundaries in search of universal truth and understanding.

Ballades of the East is a multifaceted project that – in its seminal intent – wishes to capture the essence of the culture and music from the Balkan region. In exploring the “traditional” while moving further away from it – walking a line between folk, classical, jazz and improvisation – Martris and Rudjer are creating a unique blend of their personal interpretations and styles.

You can listen to our music in the media player on the bottom of the page- Home.
