Tavche GravcheMaurice Amado Foundation Music Residency and Concert

Tavche Gravche ventures from the bustling streets of New York City to entrance us with its unique sound. Playing a combination of Macedonian and Mediterranean melodies, this eclectic group gives off a traditional, yet original vibe that will make you want to get up and dance.

The trio includes Macedonian-born clarinetist Vasko Dukovski, Israeli-born guitarist Dan Nadel, and Israeli Jazz bassist Daniel Ori. The performers take advantage of their unique blend of cultural backgrounds to create an entirely new auditory adventure.
