Radio Banska first appeared at our September 2015 wall2wall Jazz Festival, then fronted by co-founder Nina Trott on violin – Jazz Mann’s review can be found via this link.
The band released its first album ‘The Balkan Courtesan’ in 2012 and has been in regular demand since then.
Since the sad death of Nina Trott in 2017, the band has ‘rebooted’ and the current line up is:
- Craig Crofton (saxophone)
- Dave Spencer (electric guitar)
- Phil Dawson (electric guitar)
- Sol Ahmed (bass0
- Jon Clark (drums)
” Radio Banska are a delight of fusion jazz,essentially taking music of the Ottoman and Spanish empires and injecting it with a stiff shot of jazz rhythms to create a unique mix. A hidden gem at the festival they got a large, musically appreciative audience dancing and smiling : a rare thing in the often serious world of jazz. Catch them where you can ! ” Teignmouth Jazz Festival review.
