Tuesdays - Freekind (Balkan Express 051)
In the world where you can be anything, choose to be Freekind. At least, that is what Sara Ester Gredelj and Nina Korošak Serčič did. The Croatian pianist/vocalist and Slovenian percussionist met at jazz academy in Graz (Austria) and immediately hit it off.
They released their first track in 2019. I’m Gonna Live proved to be an unexpected hit and prompted the duo to explore their shared music interests further. Then the plague struck and Freekind were confined to their homes and recording studios, like the rest of musicians all over the world.
They chose to use the lockdowns creatively, writing, recording and producing enough material to release their first EP titled Not Good Enough in December 2020.
Being a duo, Freekind were able to work and perform even with all the social distancing and other restrictions. As a result, they even managed to hold a few gigs online, pleasing their fans to no end.
Neo-soul, R&B and jazz grooves are Freekind’s signature moves. While they still work on their debut full-length album, their music thusfar only whets our collective appetites.
Look Freekind up on Youtube, Spotify, or wherever you get your music from.
Balkan Express takes weekly trips into contemporary musical production of, you guessed it, the Balkans. Forget the gusle and tamburice, this show is about rock, pop and a sense of humour. Well, at least there’s guitars. On air most Tuesdays in a new-and-improved time-slot at 1100 hrs. Usually. Your train conductor is Aljaž (aka @pengovsky) who once did the world a solid and decided never to sign again in public. Which is why he ended up doing radio.
