Džambo Agušev also known by the nickname “the funky tiger” is the most widely celebrated Macedonian musician and since the late Esma Redžepova but he’s not about to rest on his laurels. Instead, the 32 years old trumpet player and band leader is aiming at developing the reputation he and his band hold as musicians par excellence!
