Electric Earth Concerts presents composer and accordionist Merima Kljuco and singer Jelena Milušic in "Love Songs from Around the World"
Electric Earth Concerts presents composer and accordionist Merima Kljuco and singer Jelena Milušic, on Friday, March 20 at 7:30 p.m. at the First Church in Jaffrey Center, New Hampshire. The Bosnian-born duo performs Lume, their project of love songs from around the world and Kljuco’s compositions based on Sephardic, Croatian, Romanian, and Kosovan melodies. Merima’s astounding accordion-playing is at once contemporary and traditional and has earned her accolades for performances on stages worldwide. Contralto Milušic performs in a wide variety of musical styles, from blues and jazz to rock and traditional Balkan music. EEC fans will remember Merima Kljuco’s riveting performance last year of The Sarajevo Haggadah.
“A splendid, utterly unexpected and unique piece of music…more imagination and creative energy was invested into these fifteen reinterpreted and rearranged compositions than in a hundred and fifteen newly written songs,” — Miljenko Jergovic (Bosnian-born author whose writing is celebrated throughout Europe)
“…the sensitivity of Kljuco…was, in a word, transcendent.” –Austin Chronicle
