Undoubtedly Martin Lubenov belongs to the greatest contemporary virtuosos, arrangers and composers for contemporary accordion music. With breathtaking virtuosity and playful elegance the young Bulgarian virtuoso combines Balkan Roma music with shades of swing, modern jazz, tango nuevo, salsa and musette and, doing so, pays honour to it just as Astor Piazzolla did to tango and Richard Galliano did to musette. In a very short time he has become one of the leading figures of the booming accordion and Balkan music scene in Vienna.
During the past few years he has been touring clubs and festivals in many European countries and beyond with his two projects Martin Lubenov Orkestar and Jazzta Prasta (Austria, Belgium, Germany, Finland, France, Netherlands, Italy, Norway, Slovenia, Czech Republic, Pakistan, Portugal, Turkey, Hungary, USA). In 2005 he was awarded the Austrian World Music Prize for the successful work with his Balkan jazz quartet Jazzta Prasta, and in 2006 he was awarded the renowned French Prix Gus Viseur, category Jazz/World. Since 2008 there have been fruitful collaborations with Austrian saxophone player Wolfgang Puschnig and some big names of the international accordion scene: Richard Galliano (France), Renato Borghetti (Brazil) and Dancas Ocultas (Portugal).
In March 2009 the one hour documentary “Jazzta Prasta” (Camera Film Sofia) was presented at the International Sofia Film Festival: The movie describes Martin Lubenov’s career between Sofia and Vienna and can be booked together with the concerts.
Martin Lubenov can be booked on request all year.
