-Tur! Sreća! Luck! Is something Göran the tuba player of Süperstar Orkestar often likes to exclaim and the band have certainly had a lot of good luck lately. This, our third album presents some of our most successful enterprises.
Ferus Mustafov is a featured soloist on some of the tunes and has been a constant inspiration to us, since our first Swedish tour together in 2004, with his deep knowledge of all Balkan music styles and virtuosity.
There\'s a lot of focus on rhythm on the album. The Turkish master drummer Hakan Vreskala who has played steadily with the band the last years has provided some of the tunes with a dense texture of oriental percussion and on some tracks he is joined by Erik Nilsson, the other Süperstar drummer. This drum section worked particularly well for the pop songs.
In 2006 Süperstar Orkestar took part in the award winning TV series ¨Musikministeriet¨, clashing with the Swedish dance band ¨Thorleifs¨. The experiment turned out so good that Thorleif, an icon of Swedish popular music, agreed on singing the Balkan version of his greatest hit ¨Gråt Inga Tårar¨ (Don\'t Cry No Tears) on the record.
We sincerely hope that you also will like Indisko Oro and Disco Oriental, an Abba song, Balkan hits and a lot of other music that we can\'t do without.
