About MR ZARKO
MR ŽARKO was born in the city of Čačak in the heartland of Serbia, just a stone’s throw away from the small village which is famous for hosting the legendary “Guca Trumpet Festival”. In the Balkans, people from the Čačak area enjoy a peculiar reputation, partly explained by MR ŽARKO as “folkloristical madness”: a very special form of insanity which he imported to Berlin several years ago. There the Serbs unique musical blend proved a hit with the club crowds and festivalgoers. Together with his five (or more) bandmembers from Bulgaria, Romania, Turkey and Germany he performs his own compositions- “songs of laughter, pain, dances and tears” – often adding a psychedelic twist. Authentic balkan brass-riffs and melodies are built on grooves drawing from all corners of the globe- and all 100% live. This eclectic combination has been dubbed “Electric Gipsy Disco Noise”.
The musicians occasionally grab the opportunity to take a solo - but don’t worry! This stuff is made for the dancefloor. Several have played in well-known Balkanacts (Shantel, Miss Platnum, Rotftont, Fanfara Kalashnikov), and Wladimir Kaminer (Russendisko) invited the band to play at the opening of his “Rodina” club in Berlin. In the summer of 2011 MR ŽARKO appeared in the Fusion-Festival and in 2013 the band released its debut album on Pyromusic. Stay tuned for more!
