“Each new city brings trepidation and excitement – Belgrade especially because, as a musician, I haven’t had many opportunities to perform there. I have had guest appearances with the theatre many times, but this is the first time that we are performing “An Evening with Cohen” here. It will be an intimate evening dedicated to the great Leonard Cohen. As musicians, Ivan Kapec and I tried to interpret his music and lyrics with a lot of respect and admiration for his song catalogue. We are looking forward to Belgrade and we hope that the Belgrade audience will like our sound”, said Maja Posavec on the eve of the concert.

“An Evening with Cohen” is more of an interpretation than a regular concert, largely inspired by the album “Famous Blue Raincoat” by Jennifer Warnes, who covered Cohen’s songs in her own unique way in 1987, and was his backing vocalist at concerts in the 1970s and 80s.

Maja and Ivan will also interpret other Leonard’s timeless hits, while Maja’s reciting Cohen’s songs in Croatian will give the evening a special feel.

Three years ago, Maja and Ivan have also released the eponymous album – “An Evening with Cohen”. To find out more about the event please visit https://web.facebook.com/events/1222224695258074 .
