La Džambo Auguševi Orchestra è spettacolare. Che suoni su palcoscenici importanti quali il Teatro di San Carlo di Napoli diretta da Roberto de Simone o metta in scena un concerto improvvisato per strada, fa sempre salire alle stelle l’umore del pubblico. 

Il virtuoso della tromba Džambo Agušev è nato a Strumica, nella Macedonia orientale, nel 1987. La sua famiglia ha una lunga e significativa tradizione musicale. Sin dall’infanzia, seguendo l’esempio del padre Cemal e dello zio Kočo, Džambo non ha mai considerato un’alternativa alla carriera musicale. A metà degli anni Novanta, quando la famiglia viveva in Germania, suo padre suonava in un’orchestra locale. Džambo accompagnava ogni giorno il padre alle prove, ascoltava e osservava, seduto in un angolo in silenzio tutto il tempo, sperando di ricevere, un giorno o l'altro, la propria tromba come regalo. Ad un certo punto, spinto da un direttore d’orchestra, Džambo inizia a imparare a suonare. Quando la famiglia Agušev tornò dalla Germania nel loro paese d'origine, Džambo sentì per la prima volta suo zio Kočo suonare. Kočo Agušev era una leggenda locale e un apprezzato musicista all'estero, nonché il leader della Auguševi Orchestra. Džambo, sbalordito dall'abilità di suo zio, iniziò a imitare Kočo e a provare ogni giorno, sempre di più, con l'obiettivo di diventare bravo come lui e magari anche migliore. All'età di 11 anni Džambo divenne membro della celebre Auguševi Orchestra, come terza tromba.

Ogni trombettista che vuole essere pienamente rispettato nei Balcani deve partecipare a dei concorsi. Dal 2006 al 2011 la nuova star della Auguševi Orchestra ha vinto il primo premio alla Kumanovo Trumpet Fest, fino ad essere escluso dalla competizione per manifesta superiorità. Fu invitato a partecipare al Guča Festival. “Salendo sul palco ho guardato la folla e mi sono detto che non potevo far altro che vincere.” E così fu.

The Džambo Auguševi Orchestra is spectacularly good. Whether they play at the great venues, such as Teatro San Carlo in Naples, and are conducted by Roberto de Simone, or they stage an impromptu concert in the street, they never fail to enchant audiences with their high spirits. 

The trumpet virtuoso Džambo Agušev was born in Strumica, in eastern Macedonia, in 1987. His family has a long and significant musical tradition. Ever since his childhood, following the example of his father Cemal and of his uncle Koco, Džambo has never considered any alternative to a career in music. In the mid-nineties, when his family lived in Germany, his father played in a local orchestra. Džambo insisted on going with him to rehearsals every day. He would listen and watch, sitting quietly in a corner the whole time, secretly hoping to be given his own trumpet as a present. There came a time one day when Džambo started learning to play, encouraged by a conductor of the orchestra. When the Agušev family returned to their home country, Džambo heard his uncle Kočo playing for the first time. He was a local legend, and a respected musician abroad; everyone admired his talent and virtuoso playing. Astonished by his uncle’s skill, Džambo started to imitate Kočo and practised every day, more and more, with the aim of becoming as good as him, maybe even better than him. Uncle Kočo was the leader of the successful Auguševi Orchestra. At last, when he was eleven, Džambo managed to become a member of the celebrated band, as third trumpet.

Every trumpet player who wants to be fully respected in the Balkans has to take part in competitions and Džambo took up the challenge by going to the Kumanovo Trumpet Fest, where he won first prize from 2006 to 2011, after which he was disqualified from competing again owing to his being a class above his fellows. In 2011 he took part in another contest in Pehčevo and made a clean sweep, while astonishing the judges. He repeated the feat the following year and was once again banned from returning as a contestant because he was just too good. But the secret dream of every trumpet player in the Balkans is to win the International Guča Festival, held in Serbia, which is probably the most important competition of its kind in the world. Thanks to his success Džambo and the orchestra were invited to compete in 2011. “When I went up onto the stage, I stared at the crowd and said to myself that I could not do anything else but win”. And so it was.

“La musica della Džambo Auguševi Orchestra fonde diversi stili e tradizioni musicali in un originale stile colmo di energia. Sono musicisti sofisticati e appassionati che entusiasmano i cuori più aridi e le menti più razionali. Il loro “Evropa čoček” è forse il ritmo, il sentimento e l’umore che dovremmo vivere ogni giorno in Europa.” 

Dalle note del Direttore di Mittelfest

..

“The Džambo Auguševi Orchestra blends many different musical styles and traditions in an original high-octane style of their own. As both sophisticated and passionate musicians, they are able to thrill the most demanding hearts and most rational minds. Their Evropa čoček is perhaps the rhythm, feeling and mood that we should be living every day in Europe.”
