"oh you love to dance in the disco club? yes! and you like to drink sljivovica and meet interesting exotic people? …"
yes? Then you also like "La Cherga", a 6-headed volume with musicians from the former Yugoslawien. Fled before war and nationalism they have been found in Germany and Austria to play together music.“ Fake no More” is called her debut album on asphalt tango Records, a new mixture from proven musical raw materials like the Balkans beat, Ethno, World, Dub, Ska, soul and Electronica. Nevenko Bucan, also known as a YEAR OF CONSTRUCTION Nevenko (notabene: YEAR OF CONSTRUCTION for the Balkans Jockey) has created here together with the musicians nothing anew fictitiously, however, a fresh mix from live instruments and electronic elements. Together with the voice the volume, Irina Karamarkovic, with a pop factor with recognition value like Judith Holofernes (We are heroes) or Nina Persson (cardigan), the sound of La Cherga becomes a sort of soundtrack of new Europe which transforms her musical roots in a contemporary package for the 21st century.
