Bora Dugić and Orkestar Danijela at Mikser Festival

The eighth Mikser Festival, the largest regional festival of creativity and innovation, will be held for the fifth time in the Belgrade neighborhood of Savamala, from 8 – 12 June 2016. Under the slogan “Society Sensitive” the Festival will be characterized by topics of gender equality and female creativity, social equality, open dialogue, multiculturalism and efficient conflict resolution.

On the main stage, Miksalište (Mostarska 5), we’ll showcase music from the region that has significantly contributed to defining the Balkan sound, and a special emphasis will be placed on female creativity in the field of music.

On the third day of the festival, 10 June, a collision of experience and youth will take place when legendary flute master Bora Dugić takes the stage with national trumpet princess Danijela Veselinović and Orchestra.

The Belgrade audience will have the opportunity to enjoy the masterwork of one of the most prominent artists of the Serbian music scene on June 10 in Savamala, who is also rightly one of the greatest folk artists in the world. Bora Dugić has released some 20 audio and video releases, recorded and composed music for many films and theater pieces, appeared as a guest on all continents and has given a large number of recitals, gaining many fans in the world.

Besides traditional flute music, a part of his rich career was dedicated to designing and building the best flute, and it is this commitment that has enabled him to play the flute with a far greater choice of tonal color, strength and dynamic balance.

Joining him on June 10 will be Danijela Veselinović’s orchestra, who is known to the local audience as the first female leader of a brass band.

From the very beginning the orchestra has been performing at many festivals and competitions in the country and region, but also around Europe.

In addition to having won numerous music awards with her orchestra, Danijela was also the protagonist of the RTS documentary film “Girl with a trumpet” and VICE film in the “Young Heroes” series.
