ZNTNDR's Latest Music Video Is a Story of Life and Death within the Roma Community of the Balkans

Nicholas Berglund has shared a new music video by Jovan Todorovic for ZNTNDR - the electronic music and video duo composed of Jovan Todorovic and Ilija Duni from Belgrade & New York City. ZNTNDR’s music style of Folktronica and Post-dubstep evokes elation through whispering-smoky vocals, melodic guitar lines, and atmospheric synths driven by warm bass lines and unconventional beats.

ZNTNDR is an abbreviation for Zenith & Nadir, words of Arabic descent that refer to imaginary points directly above and below the celestial sphere. The music of ZNTNDR embodies this duality. It is created between the folk traditions of our Balkan heritage and the inherent tendencies of electronic music today. 

The video for the track 'Wonderful Time' tells a simple story of life and death within the Roma community of the Balkans
