Here is what Radomir and Goran have to say about the album:
“This CD is a somewhat old-fashioned attempt, reminiscent of the music of the 1980s, to create a varied and colorful album that plays with different musical styles, but still remains what we intuitively understand as the music for the acoustic guitar. Each of the nine pieces on the disc is a a world in itself and to each we gave our creative maximum. The idea was to take a walk through multiple musical landscapes, from standard rumba rhythms, through a classical approach and techno-elements, to Serbian ethno-motives. Moreover, we tried to create music that would be engaging and easy to listen to, while still subtly displaying Radomir Vasiljevic’s virtuosity and the perfectly clear sound he creates on his guitar.”
The album Six Strings and a Piece of Wood has been released on CD in the spring of 2010 by the independent label Chardaq and is available from Amazon, i-Tunes,…
Radomir has been living and working in the Netherlands since 2013, where he promotes his own music and helps young talented guitarists to reach a higher level.
In September 2017, Radomir established its own Balkan Orchestra that plays typical music of the Balkan countries. The Orchestra performs with great success in the Benelux and also in other countries in the area (Germany / France).
