Trio Balkan Strings creates a universal language of its own, without frontiers. The trio has invented a dazzling technique that involves all six hands of the Starcevics playing on a single guitar simultaneously. They have performed at jazz, classical, guitar and world music festivals in the U.S., Canada and virtually every European nation, also presenting educational master classes and clinics along the way.
Trio Balkan Strings has won first prize in the world music category of the USA Songwriting Competition and first prize (best instrumental ensemble) at the 2004 Internacionale Fivizzano in Italy. No less than the legendary guitarist John McLaughlin said, “Trio Balkan Strings’ dedication to the music of the Balkans and central Europe is inspiring.”
