Ismail Lumanovski
Ismail Lumanovski
Described by The New York Times as "a brilliant, fearless young clarinetist," Ismail Lumanovski brings classical training to Balkan roots, creating a unique, powerful sound. Truly a global musician, Lumanovski studied at Julliard and has performed as headlining artist around the world, including at Carnegie Hall in New York, and prominent stages in Germany, Korea, Turkey, Switzerland, China, Tunisia, Belgium, Hungary, Trinidad And Tobago, Brazil, Ecuador, and many more.

"A showboat of a performer, Lumanovski is an adventurous, modern-minded front man who leads his band through a varied terrain of Balkan, Turkish and Romany selections, spiked with jazz and Western styles... an adventurous, modern-minded front man,"" - TIMEOUT NEW YORK
''Infectious and hypnotic music.'' - WNYC
Inspector Gadje Balkan Brass

Swift on their feet, taking sharp melodic turns as they ignite the dance floor with tight grooves of celebration, Inspector Gadje has become a fixture of the Bay Area music scene, selling out event after event and keeping the people dancing.
