Niko Ne Zna are New Zealand’s very own Balkan Gypsy brass extravaganza.
In late January 2010, they unleashed their debut self titled ep which consists of delicious arrangements of five traditional and original Gypsy tunes. To celebrate the release, they took their unique and special sound around Aotearoa on a highly successful New Zealand tour.
Comprising trumpet, saxophone, accordion, trombone, sousaphone, drums and percussion, Niko Ne Zna are a truly authentic ensemble. They can roam while playing, and enchant the audience into dancing, singing, clapping and stomping all night long. The band consists of some of Wellington’s finest instrumentalists who come from a wide array of musical backgrounds that unite together to produce a cocktail that will make your ears rise to attention and your feet move in a frenzy. Their music is high energy with dark undertones and sexy gypsy style. Niko Ne Zna are a world class act with exotic tunes, fantastic grooves and exciting solos.
This track is the first single from their debut ep released on Monkey Records in January 2010.
The video was directed and edited by Vibol Moeung and produced by Frankie Curac.
