Nenad Vasilic: Vranjanka

Bassist Nenad Vasilic has a new album out this month called The Art of Balkan Bass, and this preview track has been stuck in my head for a week. “Vranjanka” is a traditional Balkan folk song that Vasilic tackles by himself with his upright.

He perpetuates the groove with some perfectly laid ghost notes and light string slapping. Check out the strings as he plays.
