After their sold out tours in Europe, on the East Coast and in the Midwest, cellist Ian Maksin and guitarist Goran Ivanovic are making their way to the West Coast with their unique collaboration. Two of Chicago’s hottest solo instrumental artists are joining their talents to create a one-of-a-kind fusion of styles and sonorities: Ivanovic’s electrifying mix of Balkan, Arabic and Flamenco with Maksin’s soulful blend of classical, jazz and world music. The eclectic program will range from solo numbers Maksin’s original compositions as well as his ground-breaking and funky solo cello arrangements of Top 40, rock and blues tunes, to the duo’s renditions of folk songs from different corners of the world, music of Astor Piazzolla, groovy arrangements of popular classical pieces as well as original compositions by Maksin and Ivanovic.
