RB and The Funky Orkestar was formed after a collaboration with a vibraphone player that gravitated around Rebel Bran's last two albums recorded in 2010 (English and Serbian version). The album was selected top 10 new folk discoveries of 2010, by the UK's "For Folk's Sake". The band is working on a new repertoire including some Eastern European covers, new arrangements often with brand new or rewritten lyrics in English, or in original languages of the Balkans and the wider area. Also included is a selection of new material being recorded for the next album. The music is performed either solo (RB + acoustic guitar), duo with two guitars or as a full band setup.
Since the album release the artist developed significant online follower power with over 76,000 followers, including over 7,000 twitter followers, over 2000 Facebook friends, and more, with a significant audience in the local community from former Yugoslavian countries.
The artist is always looking for new live performance opportunities, which he would like to develop even further.
