Prvi singl s albuma KAJ BLUES ETNO (2016)
First single from an album KAJ BLUES ETNO (2016)
Tomislav Goluban, an eminent Croatian blues harmonica musician, on his 8th studio album Kaj Blues Etno, delivers 21 tracks, showcasing some traditional Croatian (Zagorje) song sand instrumentals, and an abundance of new, self-penned material, resulting in a unique fusion of different genres and instruments. As its very title suggests, the album encompasses three themes – the traditional music of Tomislav's native Zagorje [using its native Kajkavian, or Kaykavian, dialect], the blues and ethno or world music.
The train has always been a source of inspiration for Tomislav; therefore, Riding the Train (Vlak vozi) is a fitting choice for the 1st single from the album. It thematizes transience, life in the fast lane, its ups and downs, the dark tunnels that eventually open up to new and sunny vistas. An entertaining video has been made with a wooden toy train mimicking the real train as a central motif. Song begins with the blues harp imitating the train whistle. That whistle scream and the clickety-clack syncopation of the wheels can be heard in the preceeding track on the CD, titled Cug (Kajkavian for train), which will surely be enjoyed by many a train buff as well as many a blues fan.
As many as forty musicians collaborated on Tomislav's new release; their outstanding musicianship and diverse musical talents proved to be a perfect vehicle for Goluban's ideas. By employing a range of musical instruments, among them bagpipe, double flute, tambura, violin, mandolin, tapan, daf, darbuka or udu drum, and by incorporating train and tractor sound effects, Tomislav creates songs that carryan instantly and fully recognizable, specific author signature.
Kaj Blues Etno is a splendid example of the successful implementation of country/delta blues into (Kajkavian) Croatian language, giving birth to a completely ”new“ sound. With regard to Tomislav, though, this sound is anything but new. Those who follow him and know him well, know also that this has been his guiding idea, his leitmotif for years. This fusion of different musical expressions has taken impressive proportions. While some musicians can convincingly and credibly cover well-known blues standards, others are completely comfortable and confident with their improvisational skills. But what a few have attained is acreative blend of the above, and that is precisely what makes Kaj Blues Etno such an original, truly unique album.
Vlakovi su Golubanova vječna inspiracija, a vjerojatno je glazbenik koji ih je opjevao i odsvirao najviše puta? Stoga je odluka pala da najavni singl albuma "KAJ BLUES ETNO" bude upravo pjesma ''Vlak vozi''.
U rock aranžmanu s razigranom sekcijom puhača, prebire po temama prolaznosti i brzine života, usponima i padovima, mračnim tunelima nakon kojih ipak dođete na sunčani brijeg.
Kroz povijest vlak se u blues svijetu smatrao sredstvom za odlazak u bolji život (bijeg iz ruralne delte k urbaniziranom sjeveru). Sličnu ulogu, pogotovo tijekom druge polovice prošlog stoljeća, zagorski je cug odigrao za žitelje krapinsko-zagorske županije. Vozio ih je u glavni grad na posao, tržnicu ili sl. Ovo je samo jedna "luda crtica" kojom Goluban traži paralelu između američkog bluesa i zagorske tradicijske glazbe koja nas vodi etnu zvuku, njegovoj autorskoj glazbi.
