We had that pleasure to ask a cоuple of questions about this wonderful cooperation, and the great income from it.bw eastern magic

Mr. Gerzina How did you get to the idea of this amazing cooperation?

Smooth jazz is American music, so I thought it would be interresting to have a collaboration two players from Eastern Europe, to make a difference. I hope we have the ‘magic’ in our ‘eastern’ song.

Are you planning to continue your cooperation with the lovely Magdalena ?

I hope yes. We are in a process of organising something, and we will let you know. I am looking forward.

How will you describe this new expirience?

I had a very good experience with Magdalena and her husband Robert. We never met in person before shooting video in Rijeka (Croatia) and we really had a great time two days. They also came to Zagreb for morning TV show on Croatian national Television and live promotion. Good time, good people, good music.

Who was all involved in the making of the song and video ?

I am the author of the song, guys from my Croatian band recorded drums, bass and keys, and Magdalena’s husband Robert Fertl (Threestyle) played guitars. My wife Andrea organised everything and she works on PR. Mladen Đaković made the video.foto4

And We also wanted to hear , Magdalena Chovancovas side of the story, and she was so kind to give us all of the answers we needed, about the making of this masterpiece.

How did you made the first contact with Mr. Gerzina?

We know each other since long time .we both have been fans of each other’s music . But we met in person for first time in Croatia for the video shooting

Who was the initiator for this cooperation ?

Igor – he always has got great ideas
