Ljova and the Kontraband – Listen to THEIR STORY
Eastern-European and Gypsy melodies, Latin rhythms, Jazz-inspired improvisations, and deeply rooted Classical forms are given new meanings in original compositions that fearlessly forge a new direction, with a nostalgic gaze towards the past.
Founded by maverick film composer, arranger and violist Lev ‘Ljova’ Zhurbin, the Kontraband features his close collaborators, each an acclaimed force to reckon with in their own right. Together, they play smartly original, genre-defying music.
