DARKO NIKČEVIĆ (b 1971 )
The internationally renowned guitar players from Montenegro, Srdjan Bulatović and Darko Nikčević are lauded for their extraordinary virtuosity and exciting performances, most notably their two very successful concerts at Carnegie Hall in New York (2016 and 2017).
Their unique blend of Balkan irregular rhythms and many other international influences evokes the beauty of the Mediterranean and Oriental mysticism. They have, for more than 25 years, performed for both national and international audiences (in the US, Russia, across Europe, and the Middle East), presenting their own compositions which invoke the ‘languages’ of classical and flamenco guitar. Their works are varied in terms of character, style, technique, rhythm and tempo, and share a common thread of Montenegrin traditional music, movie soundtracks, world music and popular contemporary movements.
They have published seven albums: Duo (2001), Nostalgia (2005), Touch of Montenegro (2011), Synergy (2012), Ritmico (2015), The Best of Montenegro (2016), and Balkan, Mediterranean, Orient (2017).
