Sandy Lopicic - Border Confusion (2001)

Sandy Lopicic Orkestar consists of 15 musicians from different middle and south-east european countries and began its existence during a theatre performance. After the last performance, the musicians decided to continoue working together. Later the Austrian band deishovida , one of the most innovative bands in putting together different styles of the worlds musical traditions to their own, joined the orchestra. What keeps this orchestra together is love for music from the former Yugoslavia, and the main idea is to show people how rich the cultural heritage of the Balkans is - and also, that the Balkan people were and are not only bunch of lunatics and maniacs killing and massacring each other, but that all those people used to live, love and create beautyful music together.
The Orchestra plays Bulgarian, Gypsy/Roma, Macedonian, Serbian, Albanian, Bosnian and Montenegrin songs - their music passes through the filters of their own individual influences and imagination [the orchestra consists of mostly classical and jazz professional musicians] and sophisticated arrangements. Their music is a soundtrack for an imaginary movie, a history of love, joy and fire of passion
