Odglasi (an old Macedonian word for echoes) is a NYC-based band that plays traditional Macedonian music. It performs the diverse and vibrant repertoire that developed in different times and places in Macedonian history, in three distinctive styles, the rural Izvorno (roots), the Ottoman-influenced Chalgija, and the more modern Starogradska (old city). The musicians in Odglasi – mostly American and one Macedonian – have studied with master musicians and ensemble leaders in Macedonia and the diaspora, and have played with internationally recognized bands, including the Pece Atanasovski Orchestra, and Zlatne Uste Brass Band. Through song and dance they bring the sounds of the past into the present. ​

Vedran Boskovski (Gajda, Kaval, Tambura), Adam Good (tambura, oud), Corinna Skema Snyder (voice, tambura), Briget Robbins (kaval), Jerry Kissilinger (tapan, percussion), Jenny Luna (voice)
