Bosnian Music Artists

DJs With Bands = Musical Diversity +++

Many of the fusion bands I have heard live in Colombia (and/or have on CD), have a DJ in the musical mix.   Those DJ’s play a fundamental part in the diversity of sounds created by the band as a whole.

Live music is the ultimate musical experience for me.

A great DJ to dance or listen to is also an awesome musical experience.

The 2 combined: DJ + a band = musical diversity +++, live.

A DJ can create any and as many different sounds as he/she wants yesMusicians can’t do the same thing with instruments, can they?

Combine the musicians and the DJ’s (+ of course emcees & vocalists), and you have complete musical freedom to be as diverse as you want yes? The sound possibilities are endless.

Or no? 

Add a VJ into the mix and you have visual diversity with the auditory yes?

Dubioza Kolektiv – A Fusion Taste of Bosnia

Dubioza Kolektiv live @ Rock al Parque 2013.

Dubioza Kolektiv - Rock al Parque 2013

My first taste of Bosnian fusion  music.  I’m not surprised it happened in Bogota.

The 8 Bosnian musicians in Dubioza Kolektiv are super energetic and uplifting performers, singing positive social messages.

Live @ Rock al Parque 2013

They are also quality musicians creating great music with their seamless blend of ska, reggae, punk, hip hop, dub and rock.  I have a super soft spot in music for horns, so the saxophone in this music was the cherry on the cake for me.

The positive reaction of the huge Colombian crowd to Dubioza Kolektiv, with their lyrics in English and Bosnian [?], proved yet again that good music surpasses language barriers.

Check out this video of their Rock al Parque show and let me know what you think….
