Svetlost + Odron Ritual Orchestra is a large ensemble established as a continuation of the successful previous collaboration of Kristijan Novkovski, Deni Omeragic and Ninoslav Spirovski in their own trio called Svetlost. Envisioned as an open platform for collaboration with musicians of different profiles, the music of this Macedonian lineup changes and depends of the participants involved in the specific project; mostly informed by stylistic directions such as free jazz, post-rock, electro-acoustic music, minimalism and ambient. The compositional frameworks of Novkovski / Оmeragic / Spirovski serve as a fertile ground for a successful music interaction of the ensemble members, where the boundaries of the formal and the free are blurred. In September last year they released their debut LP Odron Ritual Orchestra, which was selected in several relevant end-of-year lists for best jazz albums in 2019, including that of the independent music platform Bandcamp, as well as in the wider selection of the US public radio network - National Public Radio.
