” They describe their music as Novi Sad sonic mass, Pannonian trance-rhythms, experiences from Mexico, cold and flaming jazz, East, West & planets, Universe, Microverse and The Present Moment. They didn’t exaggerate.”
– Vojislav Pantić, Politika
Peđa Okiljević – tenor sax; Voja Savkov – tenor & soprano sax; Marko Čurčić – bass; Lav Kovač – drums
Since 2016, Dragon’s Fuel has been an active member of the Novi Sad new music scene. It’s an authentic sounding band that bases its creation on the roots of Jazz music but it doesn’t stay there – Dragon’s Fuel is in a constant search for new stylistic fields of musical expression. Their music is noted for a spontaneous exploration of African and Balkan folklore, aesthetics of Sun Ra Arkestra, Ornette Coleman, rock’n’roll & punk. Their first album, released in 2018, got credited positively both by critics and by audience. Second album is in post production.
They’ve had a chance to perform at the Ring Ring Festival, Belgrade Jazz Festival, Zelenkovac Jazz Festival, KARUSEL fest Čačak, Hillock Carnaval, as well as performing in many clubs around Serbia and beyond.
