DUO VEŠLIGAJ - REŽMAN + POLONA UDOVIC
After years of socialising, cooperation and joint creation in various groups, Vojko Vešligaj and Mitja Režman present themselves for the first time as a duo. This gives them a new space and framework in which they can more intimately connect their lives, thoughts and feelings.
Their music is a combination of classical, jazz, world music, R'N'R and everything they've come across so far.
The concert program has its roots in Arab, Iberian and South American musical culture. They will present it sincerely and thoroughly to the audience.
The storm of passion and the peace of the ocean, which rests somewhere amid the Iberian Peninsula, South America and their rich folklore, is the musical muse that connects Polona, Timi, Vojko and Mitja. Mascara explores the space inside and outside of the field of classical music; cautiously, respectfully, it colors over the line with a brush of tense strings and the warmth of human voice.
Polona Udovič, Timi Krajnc, Vojko Vešligaj and Mitja Režman are classically trained musicians, acclaimed at home and abroad. The quartet is a reflection of their valuable musical experiences and their deep understanding of music, their artistic careers and their intensive work with numerous artists, chamber groups, orchestras, ensembles, in concert halls and at festivals around the world.
Their music expresses so powerfully, so directly and so concisely that poignant longing captured on the streets of Montevideo, Buenos Aires, Lisbon... halfway between bordellos and milongas... joy and a sad melancholy feeling...amongst merchants, sailors and African immigrants...it's the music played at night when all kinds of masks are allowed (mascara - Spanish word for mask), the music which comes with moonshine and dies down at daybreak...

Paco Seco is a guitarist and an open, versatile and creative musician. His music is a result of much self-discipline and knowledge. Through discovery and adventure he has reinterpreted his experiences into music accentuating his southern Spanish spirit. He has developed a unique style of playing the guitar, an unusual blend between the clean cut sound of classical and deep-rooted flamenco guitar. Consequently his compositions once played are versatile and evoke fresh nuances, rhythms, cadences and strummings, closer to jazz than flamenco. These diverse harmonies shape his personal playing style and therefore the music. His concerts are full of evocation, enigma, generosity and soul. His music has taken him to the London Guitar Festival, Genoa Mediterranean Music Festival, Omis Guitar Festival, Sarajevo Sevdah Festival, Brno Guitar Festival, Buitengewoon Festival Doetinchem, Fiuggi Guitar Festival, San Remo International Guitar Festival, Tangier´s Music Fête, Beem Cultural Centre of Lisbon, The Circle of Fine Arts in Madrid, International Festival of Music, & Dance of Granada, Elk Music Festival, the Royal Alcazar of Sevilla. He has played in Croacia, Poland, Bosnia, Czech Republic, India, Morocco, Netherlands, Russia, England, Italy, France, Portugal, Spain…
