Dzambo Agusevi Orchestra
The trumpet virtuoso Dzambo Agushev was born in Strumica, eastern Macedonia, in 1987. His family has a long and significant musical tradition.
Since his childhood, following the example of his father Cemal and of his uncle Koco, Dzambo never even considered an alternative to the music career.In the mid-nineties, when his family used to live in Germany, his father played in a local big Orchestra. Dzambo insisted every day to go with him to the rehearsals, he listened and observed, sitting silently in a corner, hoping to receive, one day or the other, his own trumpet as a present.
The conductor of the Orchestra, reading the child's thoughts and aspirations, engaged himself to find an instrument for him and Dzambo started immediately to learn playing. When the family Agushev came back from Germany to their home country, Dzambo heard his uncle Koco playing for the first time. Koco Agushev was a local legend and an appreciated musician abroad; everybody praised his talent and virtuosity. Dzambo, astonished by the ability of his uncle, started to imitate Koco and rehearsed every day, with the goal to become as good as him, may be to become even a better musician.

Dzambo's next target was to be accepted in Agushevi's Orchestra. Whilst most of the boys in his age in Strumica, as almost everywhere, wanted to play with a ball as much as possible, he just wanted to spend more and more time trying to improve his ability as a trumpet player.
He owes his nickname to the legendary saxophone player Ferus Mustafov: when Ferus heard Dzambo playing, he could hardly believe to his eyes and hears... He could hardly believe that an eleven-year- old- boy could play so fast and named him "Jumbo" (in the Macedonian transcription is Dzambo) and invited him to record a CD. "Jumbo 11", his debut album was published in Bitola by a local label.
Every trumpet player who wants to be fully respected in the Balkans must take part in competitions. Dzambo first went to compete at "Kumanovo Trumpet Fest" in 2006, downsizing the other musicians and conquering a deserved first place. From 2006 until 2011 the new star of the Agushevi Orchestra was the absolute champion in Kumanovo, until he was banned to compete to leave the place to other competitors.
In 2011 he took part at the competition in Pehcevo and managed to win all the prizes.

It is widely known that the dream of every trumpet player of the Balkan region is to win the legendary Guca Festival in Central Serbia. Since the sixties, the "Assembly of Trumpet Players" of Guca is the most important event of this kind in the whole area and probably in the world. Thanks to the triumph in Pehcevo, in the same year Dzambo was invited to compete in Guca.
Dzambo felt no fear but a deep sense of respect and the will to show his skill: "When I entered the stage, I starred the crowd and I said to myself that I could not do anything else but win". And so it was. The Orchestra received the first prize and Dzambo wrote his name in the history of the famous event: Both the judges and the audience appraised the Orchestra and his young leader.
The victory in Guca was followed by another victory in Pehcevo in 2012, followed by the organization’s request not to compete anymore, because Agushevi Orchestra took all the possible prizes.

Having started from Strumica in 2006 as a simple member of his uncle's Orchestra, in only a few years Dzambo made himself a name, both in the Balkans and internationally. He is frequent guest in Turkey, toured Australia and will soon be touring the USA. The Agushevi Orchestra has already brought his musical message to several European countries, but Dzambo and his fellows don't even think about stopping for a while: Instead, they keep on touring and spreading their Balkan groove all over the world.
