Event details

Split at Night Jazz Festival / 30.8. - 1.9. / Cellars of Diocletian’s Palace 

REPASSAGE / 31.8. 

Jelena Galić – double bass, vocal / Kajo Milišić – guitar / Marko Pažanin – guitar / Mario Penton Hernandez – percussion

The gipsy swing band Repassage were brought together by a passion for the music popularized by Django Reinhardt and Stephane Grappelli back in the 30s and 40s of the past century and which largely influenced the development of jazz culture in Europe. With their musical skills and inspiring energy, Repassage have been attracting the attention of both the audience and critics since their very beginnings in 2012. In 2014 they took part in a number of music festivals in Split, and were awarded first place at both "West Herzegowina Fest“ in Široki Brijeg and at the festival "Za škoj sve bi da“ on the island of Lastovo. One year later they won the "HR Demo Klub" band contest and have since then been working on their new material combining swing and bossa nova with latino rhythms and elements of Balkan ethno.

Don't miss Split at Night Jazz Festival's opening night and the long-awaited performance by this expressive quartet!
