The CD Aritmia, a joint project of accordionist Merima Ključo and guitarist Miroslav Tadić has been released today.
Native to Bosnia and Herzegovina, the two artists with a permanent address in the United States have arranged compositions by Bella Bartok, Erik Satie and Manuel de Falla for the new release Aritmia and added original compositions inspired by the complex nature of traditional music from the Balkan.
Miroslav Tadić recorded most of the repertoire of this album in Los Angeles, while the production of all 13 compositions was a shared venture of Tadić and Ključo.
The Tuzla born Miroslav Tadić is the most successful guitarist of Bosnian and Herzegovenian heritage on the international music scene, who performed at the Jazz Fest three times: in 2001 in a duet with Vlatko Stefanovski when they held two sold out concerts, in 2006 when he went on stage as a member of The Grande Mothers Re:invented ensemble and two years ago, when he played a wonderful concert with the Teofilović brothers introducing the repertoire of Vidarica. Merima Ključo visited Jazz Fest Sarajevo in 2008 as a special guest of Amira Medunjanin, who performed within the Next Generation program.
