Canadian-Croatian pianist and singer Allan Sitar, along with Vjekoslav Crljen on acoustic bass and Mladen Morača on drums, make up the “AL SiTAR swing trio.”

Based in Zagreb, Croatia, the trio has been performing as a young band since May, 2020. They netted over 40 live performances in such as short time, performing mainly for themselves as well as for a group of swing dance followers. Had it not been for the 2nd wave of the Covid-19 pandemic, there is no telling where this band would end up.

Will 2021 let the momentum continue? Hopefully, but only time will tell as they are eager to travel when it’s appropriate.
