We would like to inform you that this year’s XXI Sajeta Festival, unfortunately, will not be held at the confluence in Tolmin. There is a well-known reason for this: the new coronavirus, due to which we received a double negative opinion from the National Institute for Public Health for such a derivation of Sajeta as we know it. We have decided to perform Sajeta in several concert stages, about which we will keep you informed when and where. Follow us on our online channels. Thank you for your understanding!
More information soon, stay informed: sign up @ https://www.sajeta.org/en/
PANTALOONS (Slo)WHEN: TBA @ 19:00
The Pantaloons trio first emerged as part of the Chilli Brass Band, where we – Luka Belič, David Nik Lipovac and Aljaž Markežič – also first met. Soon after one of the rehearsals for CBB, we had a jam which clearly indicated that our tenor saxophone, drums and tuba should start creating something together. The winter of 2016 brought us our first composition, which opened the door to our many other works, which are slowly filling up our repertoire. Our music smells of Balkan trumpeters’ parties with a hint of youthful London jazz scene, and is seasoned with influences of jazz, funk, breakbeat, dubstep and more. As Radio Študent’s choice for the concert tour Klubski Maraton in 2019, we got the chance to shake up the Slovenian music scene. In anticipation of our upcoming adventures, we started 2020 as INES#talents with a gig at the international music festival MENT in Ljubljana.
“Mischievous, well harmonized, but most of all always in the mood to dance, Pantaloons are one of those bands that certainly won’t leave you indifferent.” (Festival MENT)
Quartzite 4tet (Slo/Ita/Nl)WHEN: TBA @ 20:00
Quartzite is extremly compact granular and metamorphic rock – that’s how quartet named their music, the sound of this ensemble explores between boundaries of the classical-contemporary music, jazz and rock. The explosive energy is reflecting in their highly structured compositions leaving space for adventurous risk taking moments and no-holds-barred improvisation. Created their own music language.
The international quartet met while studying at Codarts, University of Arts, Rotterdam. They became friends – than lovers, than even something more and basically became a rock; QUARTZITE 4tet in 2016. The same year quartet already won the 2nd price at Erasmus Jazz Award 2016 + best soloist award in De Doelen Rotterdam(the very first performence). In just 2 years after the start, Quartzite 4tet already shared the stage like Tivoli Vredenburg, Lanteren Venster, De Doelen, Maas Theater, InJazz festival, other festival and venues in Europe. Rapidly growing quartet from Rotterdam had a debut CD called Recrystalliation released in March 2017 and it is preparing for new release in 2020.
Each member has an impressive list of credits accomplished over the years.

ŠKM BANDA (Slo)WHEN: TBA @ 18:00
Beltinška zasedba ŠKM Banda (Štefan Kovač Marko Banda) ne potrebuje daljše predstavitve. Po dobrih petnajstih letih delovanja, petih studijskih albumih in fluidnem gnetenju svoje edinstvene glasbene realnosti, imenovane post-jazz, so prekmurski čarodeji zopet v procesu snovanja njihove naslednje plošče, katere čisto sveži material boste lahko slišali privič tudi na Sajeti 2020.
Kvartet se je v zadnjem času od etnografsko obarvanih zvočnih krajin deloma vrnil k svojim koreninam in bolj surovemu, rockovsko obarvanemu zvočnemu miljeju.
ŠKM banda se giblje v post-jazzu in post-rocku, a po novem v ospredje postavlja agresivnejši pristop h komponiranju, igriv preplet kitarskega šuma in mogočnih zvočnih zidov. Za sladokusce!
River Octopus (Slo)WHEN: TBA @ 17:00
River Octopus (Slo)
River Octopus ali Sotoška hobotnica je solo projekt Andraža Erznožnik Podreke, ki ga je zasnoval prav na Sotočju, delovati pa je začel lansko leto. Njen obstoj je namenjen dušam, ki so v iskanju pravega čustvenega toka in notranjega miru. Njena naloga pa je pomagati dušam na njihovi poti in jim dati sočutje, ki ga potrebujejo. Ko duša začuti njeno prisotnost udari strela.
Andraž je pred tem kot solo artist in v glasbeno-plesnih duetih večkrat nastopil na raznih art festivalih po Sloveniji (Integra, Kalejdoskop, Opus 1, Živa).
Na Sajeti se River Octopus premierno predstavlja živi publiki.
Sotoške nevihte so edinstven naravni pojav, ki se zgodi v poletnem času. Sotoške nevihte so nevihte, ki očistijo dušo vsega težkega, stresnega, negativnega. Napolnijo te s pozitivno nabitimi elektroni emocij, energije. Ponujajo spiritualen prehod iz starega v novo leto pri tem pa vzpodbujajo živalske nagone. Vse se začne, ko zapiha veter. Naznanja prihod oblakov, ki se dvigajo iznad gorovja in potujejo od Krna proti planinam Čadrga ter po Tolminskih koritih do sotočja, kjer so duše zbrane in plešejo vsaka svoj ritual. Drevesa plešejo ples vetra in v daljavi se zasliši prvi grom, ki vodi prve nevihtne kaplje v bitko. Ko pade prva kaplja se duše spremenijo v živali, takrat se začne nevihta.
Kaplje nas najprej oplaknejo vsega negativnega, pri tem pa jim pomaga grom, ki svojo glasnostjo odpre in prečisti naše kanale. Leto gre h koncu, kaplje postajajo vse večje in gostejše, grom postane glasnejši, energije vesolja se zaletavajo ena ob drugo in povzročajo naelektreno trenje, ob katerem se nebo razsvetljuje in kaže pot v novo leto. Duše se prepustijo nevihti, ki ob živalskih zvokih in gibih iz njih ven vabi negativne energije. Soča in Tolminka dvigneta svoje bregove. Duše se zdaj lahko okopajo. Vso svojo energijo spustijo v reko, da jo bo ta lahko odnesla naprej.
Ob najglasnejšem gromu se nevihta postopoma začne umirjati, spet zapiha veter in začne trgati oblake. Skozi pogleda žarek sonca in naznani novo leto. Ko se nevihta oddalji, sonce zavzame nebo, bregovi se znižajo, reki pa odnašata staro energijo naprej. Iz Soče se dvigne meglica, ki te boža po obrazu in pomirja utrujeno telo. Sonce nas napolni z novo svežo energijo.
ALL STRINGS DETACHED (Slo)WHEN: TBA @ 21:00
Originally All Strings Detached is a duet formed in 2013 by Jana Beltran (voice, guitar) and Vesna Godler (voice, bass guitar).
The first two ASD albums, ‘Heavy Rain’ (2014) and ‘There’s Something Painful about the Pearls’ (2017) were well received by the public and by the media. With a dark modern minimalism and slower tempos which defy the contemporary sonic saturation the duet established itself as a convincing, fresh voice in the Slovenian music scene.
The ‘Septet’ album follows the aesthetics of the first two albums. Their excellent choice of guest musicians, exceptional performances and complex song writing opened doors to something new. Album production and mixing was handled by Chris Eckman (The Walkabouts, The Strange). The album was recorded live with no overdubs at the BearTracks studio with Robi Bulešić.
The extended All Strings Detached line-up appearing at the XXI Sajeta consists of:
Jošt Drašler (electric bass, double bass),
Vid Drašler (drums),
Klemen Bračko (viola, string arrangements),
Barja Drnovšek (violin)
Bojan Cvetrežnik (violin)
Ana Kravanja & Tea Vidmar (Slo)WHEN: TBA @ 19:30
Ana Kravanja – voice
Tea Vidmar – voice
Ana Kravanja and Tea Vidmar are musicians searching for a mutual voice in the space between inhaling and exhaling. They are focused on repetitive rhythmic singing, composed of simple voices, syllables, inhales and exhales, which makes the listener feel like there is a ‘third voice’ present. Besides this magic, the musicians are interested in the transitions from the sonic qualities of free improvisation into melodies of undeterminable origin.
Ana Kravanja is a musical improviser and multi-instrumentalist. As an improviser on violin she has collaborated with many Slovenian and foreign musicians and dancers. She creates music for narration, dance, theatre, animations, and films and works as a mentor in musical workshops for adults and children.
Tea Vidmar is active in the field of street theatre, music, and vocal performances. She also performs in individual or group vocal-theatrical performances and concerts of improvised music. As a pedagogue, she teaches voice stage presence.
Zhlehtet (Slo)WHEN: TBA @ 22:00
Rok Zalokar je jazz pianist in skladatelj, aktiven med Ljubljano in Rotterdamom. Je vodja avantgardne pop skupine Kukushai, svojega klavirskega tria ter improvizirane hiphop godbe Million Ear. Med drugim je nastopil tudi na North Sea Jazz Festivalu, enem največjih jazz festivalov v Evropi in prejel nagradi Erasmus Jazz Prize in Jazzon.
Njegov najnovejši projekt Zhlehtet predstavlja njegov producenski alter ego, skupaj s kolektivom glasbenikov Ljubljanske impro scene. Kozmični jazz zasedbe prepleta akustičen zvok z elektroniko, kompozicijo z improvizacijskimi koncepti in orisuje zvok 21. Stoletja.
Od začetka 2019 se je v zavetju studija pripravljal produkcijski kolaž katerega glavni fokus je masa zvoka in njegova tekstura, na momente se ljudje skupaj zasmejijo, drugače pa samo zvenijo, rezultat je 響み (Toyomi) – stara japonska beseda za velik zvok/odmev in ljudi ki se skupaj smejijo.
Rok Zalokar – klavir, sinti
Urška Preis – harfa, efekti
Lenart De Bock – saksofon
Jošt Drašler – kontrabas
Vid Drašler – bobni

Upperground Orchestra (Ita/Lbn)WHEN: @
Upperground Orchestra is Rabih Beaini’s playground when it comes to stage diving and obscene perforative skills. He’s on electronics in a band full with gifted/lauded/vibrant members of Italy’s free jazz and improv scene Piero Bittolo Bon on woodwinds, Alvise Seggi on bass, Tommaso Cappellato and Daniele De Santis both on drums.
After a promoter double-booked two acts for a concert in an Italian squat in 2002, a truly magical impromptu jam session took place between the artists. Several more performances followed over the years, with the line-up evolving to its current status. Within loose scenarios of free jazz, krautrock, and deep cosmic jamming, in which Rabih’s experimental electronics, touching freeform between house and techno, meet the virtuosity of the instrumentalists – a chaos ensues which is relished and from which new planes are explored. True to the original core of improvisation, the Upperground Orchestra exists primarily as a live-experience, creating music with the individual energy of each place they play. With just a handful of releases to date, starting with ’Solaris Eremit’, released in 2008 on Beaini’s Morphine Records, epic remixes of Terrence Dixon’s ‘Room 310’ on Meakusma, 2012’s ‘The Eupen Takes’ LP and the re-imagination of Theo Parrish’s ‘Falling Up’ on Third Ear Recordings, Upperground Orchestra’s new LP Euganea is released in June 2019 on Morphine Records, featuring material previously recorded during a residency and live concert in Villa De Vescovi in Italy.
“Led by Lebanese DJ and musician Rabih Beaini, Upperground Orchestra hangs in the ether of Kieran Hebden and Steve Reid’s rapturous mid-2000s experiments. The Venetian group stitches heady electronic clicks, washes and whooshes in and out of its heart-racing free jazz.” – Viking’s Choice – NPR
THE EUPEN TAKES
SVOJAT (Slo)WHEN: Saturday 1.8. @ 19:00
Andrej Fon: guitar, saxophone, vocals, lyrics
Tadej Čauševič: drums
Ivo Poderžaj: bass, vocals
The Svojat trio is the new line-up led by Andrej Fon. It is a real rock ‘n’ roll band which spawned from the Slovenian post-improvisational scene and consists of Andrej Fon, Ivo Poderžaj and Tadej Čauševič. The trio formed as a classic rock trio and it is a sort of an experimental band, it’s hard do define the genre of the music they play, it flows through avant-rock, post-punk, no-wave and improvisation.
In the beginning of this year they published an album with ZARŠ and after a few listens it is clear that this is a mixture of ruthless, complex and brutally honest music in which the genre borders are non existent. Svojat show a remarkable diversity in song writing, interesting internal turning points and storyboard, excellent musicianship and more. They say they are even more convincingly unpredictable live.
‘Yes, Slovenia has a new Triglav, a new three piece puzzle and a new excellent trio beginning its way with Radio Študent or supported by it and it is another trio that spawned from the excellent Slovenian post-improvisational scene which is globally showing excellent results.’
Dušan Bulajić, Tolpa bumov, 9. 1. 2020, Radio Študent
Etceteral (Slo)WHEN: Saturday 1.8. @ 20:30
Etceteral is a new project by Boštjan Simon, Marek Fakuč and visual artist Lina Rica, in which they are exploring the boundaries of repetitive polyrhythmic music. The play of sequences and patterns are complemented by improvisational escapades through science fiction black holes. The DSI Evolver Synthesizer adapts to the tone of Simon’s saxophone seamlessly as well as Fakuč’s bass drum. In this way it appears as an interference or a third element spawning from the musical dialogue. Lina Rica with her interactive visuals takes makes all together a synesthetic experience.
