ROYA Quartet is a group with a distinctly multicultural identity, adorned with the diversity of tradition, experience, cultural heritage and values. The members of ROYA have been fused into an ensemble by their love for the classical saxophone and chamber music-making, accompanied by their wish to present the very best of saxophone repertoire to a wider audience. Through a variety of projects, the quartet is searching for different music genres and forms of expression. This turned into the annual LadieS Night event, where ROYA so far presented projects »LadieS goes Tango«, in collaboration with Quatro por Tango ensemble and the Argentinian composer Fernando Muslera, and »Village LadieS«, in collaboration with the singer Zvezdana Novaković and composers from Croatia, Poland and Slovenia. The quartet has performed solo concerts at festivals in Croatia, Poland, France, Serbia and Slovenia. With the rich temperament and individual charisma of each of the members, LSQ has been conquering the hearts of the wider audience.
