Serbian Classical Guitarist and Composer Maya Le Roux Obradovic

Symphonic and Guitar is Maya Le Roux Obradovic's latest CD.

Join Jill Pasternak when she interviews Serbian guitarist and composer Maya Le Roux Obradovic. Her latest CD - Symphonic and Guitar - is filled with her own compositions, many inspired by the colorful folklore of the Balkans that were the setting of her early childhood. She moved to Geneva, Switzerland at age five, and eventually studied music at Conservatoire superieur de Geneve and then in Paris. Geneva is Maya's home, but her Serbian roots infuse her music; Symphonic and Guitar is a collaboration with Radio Belgrade Orchestra and Sinfonietta Beograd String Orchestra.
