Catch-Pop String-Strong


The ability to build new forms from miscellaneous components, using wit and virtuosity as mortar, is a remarkable skill, a skill which Jelena Popržan and Rina Kaçinari have honed to perfection: one is a Serbian, the other a Kosovo Albanian, and together the play Bach, traditional music from the Balkans or the Scottish highlands, pop songs, as well as own compositions resounding with a multitude of different influences, and beautifully so. 

In their music Catch-Pop String-Strong combine stories and interpretations from different places, eras and angles. Equipped with a cello, a viola, their voices and as much respect as necessary they build bridges between different cultures, across centuries and musical traditions, and they do it all with a light-footedness and natural easethat is simply amazing.
