“The first musical encounter between the members of the Milojkovic Trio occurred on a summer day in 2015. A gas leak in Jesper’s home forced us outside, where we had to wait for a plumber to fix the problem. At a given moment, Jesper’s upstairs neighbour, Jasmina, came outside carrying her accordion. I’m not sure anymore whether she actually played it herself that day, but I do remember the plumber playing the accordion quite well, after he had taken care of the gas leak.
Six years later, in 2021, Jasmina and Jesper decided to make music together. Shortly after, I joined. Jasmina would first prepare lunch, after which we would make music. Jasmina taught us songs from Serbia and Macedonia; music which we weren’t that familiar with yet. After some time, we made a plan to record something, and from that moment onwards we started rehearsing more. At some point during the course of 2022 we felt ready and so we started recording, using Jasmina’s living room as a recording studio. The result is this album with ten traditional songs from Jasmina’s native soil.”
