Jaro Milko & The Cubalkanics was formed in 2010 by Czech-Swiss guitarist Jaro Milko following a trip to Cuba. Hooked on a cumbia compilation that someone had slipped Jaro while on a tour of the USA with the band Firewater and inspired by the Latin sound of the ’60s reverberating with surf guitar, the urge arose to fuse bittersweet Balkan melodies with Latin rhythms.

With their debut album ''Cigarros Explosivos!'' released in 2014, Jaro Milko & The Cubalkanics were able to instantly generate a buzz in the international Balkan music scene as well as an extensive concert tour across Europe.

For his follow-up album, Jaro Milko has taken the time necessary to further refine and perfect his trademark sound of wild Balkan melodies and cool Latin grooves. ''Zivot'' is the name of the work, featuring substantial backing from Tod A (Firewater, Cop Shoot Cop) and a number of guest artists. ''Zivot'', by the way, is Czech for ‘life’. And that is exactly what you hear on this album: pure joy of life packed in twelve tracks of music!

Jaro Milko (guitar & vocals)
