Esad Halilovic, born in Belgrade, Serbia, lives and works as a drummer, composer and educator in Vienna.
Leader of Dusha Connection Jazz Trio
2017 CD MERAK redPmusic
(…) With “Merak”, Esad Halilović has released an album that proves that classic jazz can sound timeless and anything but old and gray. The songs of the trio have a kick. They are filled with an unconventionally fresh wind that leaves you wanting more.
