Djembabe are Maribor based female percussion group who successfully mix traditional West African rhythms with a pinch of Slav temperament. Last week we had a short but sweet photo session, with great help from my buddy Tomaž and my wife Špela behind the scenes.

The girls from Djembabe are just in the process of finishing their second album, so this concert at Festival Etnika 2018 in Maribor was a great opportunity for the home audience to hear some new material as well as the old hits from their debut album.
It was a while since the last time I photographed Djembabe live, have to admit. Paradoxically, because my wife plays the violin in the band - that’s why I was even more happy to catch them opening Maribum Afriqui 2018 festival this month in Maribor! ;)
Last weekend I did a quick promo photoshoot for a Croatian/Slovenian band Helika, which, I’m sure, is already a pretty known name to the regular readers of my blog since I’ve been photographing them on multiple occasions. And that’s not just because my wife is in the band, but also ‘cause I really like their "trip pop" music!
Plesna izba Maribor's annual winter drummers show production
Second part of the annual winter show production of the Maribors dance school & dance company Plesna izba Maribor called "Naj bobni" featured drummers from their drummers classes, plus a benefit concert for their friends in the state of Mali.
Just published another photographic project of mine, called "Don’t forget the drummer". Subtitled "A thing for drummers", this new project features photographs of guys and girls who are most often neglected when photographing the live performances.
