The music project MAiKA is a new phenomenon on the local scene. Serbian/Croatian/Montenegrin band with its authentic combination of Balkan beats, hit melodies and furious energy at live performances, continues to delight not only the festival audience, but the foreign booking agencies as well!

This unusual band uses accordion, saxophone, trumpet and two female vocals combined with unrestrained rhythm and electronic effects. With its charm and wild energy, MAiKA will conquer every stage, win your heart, and make you dance till you fall off your feet!

As the only local band selected personally by famous GOGOL BORDELLO to follow them on their Eastern European tour, band MAiKA became one of most adored bands in Balkan region. By the end of the 2018 summer band MAiKA had two amazing shows at spectacular BOOMTOWN fair and on request of new fans band remained in the UK and throw several spectacular shows.





Kasja, Zoom festival 2019The task of warming you up and cooling you down will be given to a young DJ named Kasja and her dynamic dance sets!

Kasja is a girl who has in the past few months performed as a music selector in the clubs such as Život (Rijeka), Crkva (Rijeka) and Kotač (Pula), in the tunnels under Rijeka, and on a recent event organised by Rijeka 2020 in our beloved Hatera ex-paper factory, next to Elena Colombi and Dr. Rubenstein. She is still wandering through varios genre fields, focusing mostly on house, but with no fear of peeping into electro, genreless industrial depths.

Let’s listen to what she has to say this time!



The concert is part of the tenth edition of Zoom Performing Arts Festival, taking place from October 23-29 at various places in Rijeka.
