DŽAMBO AGUŠEVI: In the competitive world of Romani Balkan brass bands, a new star of the trumpet - Džambo Aguševi - has been sweeping up awards. Hailing from Strumica in eastern Macedonia, Džambo seems to have been born with a trumpet in his hand, and to have grown up doing nothing but practicing on it. At only 11 years old, he earned himself a place in his uncle Kočo's well-known band, Aguševi. Džambo, now 30, quickly ascended to the top of his profession and formed his own stellar band, with his father and other relatives.
