The music of LAUTARI is a modern ethno-jazz rooted in the tradition of Central, Eastern, and Southern Europe and Caucasus. Folk motifs played on piano, violin, clarinet and flutes, due to bold arrangements and a great dose of improvisation, create an original and fine music in which tradition encounters modernity. LAUTARI draws its inspiration from the music and attitudes of the Gypsy Lautars, the virtuosi of "Gypsy jazz" improvisation. In LAUTARI's compositions can also be heard the oriental ornaments, the subtlety of Byzantine music, the rhythms of the Balkans, and Slavic vigor.
