Matt Moran

Tapan (Daouli, Bubanj)

Matt Moran has played tapan (aka goč, bubanj, tupan, daouli, or davul) since way before you could find videos of Balkan music online. He lives in Brooklyn, NY, where he leads Slavic Soul Party! and plays Balkan music with Eastern European masters and American practitioners. He is currently a member of Kavala (playing daouli) and Veveritse Brass Band (playing tenor horn), and also in many jazz and new music groups (playing vibraphone). He has traveled to the Balkans numerous times since 1999 to listen to contemporary practices in brass band, bitov, and zurna/zurla drumming styles.
