Aleksandar Kashtanov created the orchestra in 2005. Over the years, we have performed in Kazakhstan, Siberia, Sakhalin, Turkey, Montenegro, Krasnodar Territory, Switzerland.

"Muzika u ime zivota, zivot u ime Ljubavi!" (c) Aleksandar Kashtanov

Melody for soul, dance for body! Childrens, grandmothers and even animals dance with us. We give the opportunity to forget about everything in the world, so that the soul turns towards the music, and the legs start to dance. Now Balkan music is becoming popular thanks to Emir Kusturica. However, he is far away, and we are with the Aleksandar Kashtanov's orchestra, we are here and now! Our life, our love in every sound for you, friends!
