In an interview with me, llya Leoshko,
Saša Peršolja reveals to us how he created his musical style "Fejkavangard", a mixture of Funk Blues & Balkan.
llya Leoshko -Saša, tell us how started your musical career?
1. Saša Peršolja:
Began at the age of thirteen, when I saw on fucking TV David Bowie singing and playing saxophone, than I was very hurt.
My father and I wanted to buy a saxophone, but it was very expensive for the slave nation and egoists of Slovenia.
Three years later I could finally buy the guitar with a little help from my grandfather .
A "Folk Blues" classic guitar. The cheapest instrument on the market at that time.
From then on, started my creation.
llya Leoshko -Tell us a little about your musical roots ?
2. Saša Peršolja:
The story of my country in Europe is very similar to the history of Africans in America.
It was because of these painful facts that, when I was with friends, more or less to my 25 years with an open heart, I decided to follow the Blues genre and its derivatives, such as Funk and Rock.
llya Leoshko -Your songs show a very attractive mixture of pace.
You got someone to follow this style of music?
3. Saša Peršolja:
Thank you very much for your compliments. Bal šoje spasiba za komplimente.
Sorry for bad pronouciation.
I made a new musical style called "Fejkavangard".
It’s mathematical definition is a performance of the new musical art.
A new style, derived from the "Blues" the Balkans, roughly the European Centre syncopated style with shared roots and musical distortion of the spirit "Junk Funk".
I have some people who have followed this style, but only in our country.
llya Leoshko -How do you classify this phase of your life?
4. Saša Peršolja:
I'm really enjoying all this. Is a very creative and productive phase, although gray a little hehe. Egoism eats nerves.
