It's in pristine state and has already been praised by several local classical pianists as one of the best sounding pianos in the region.

"Being someone who spent many hours in studio work, I'm very well aware how important the conditions in which I record are. Finally there is a space where both the recording conditions and the instrument are of the highest possible level. KAWAI SHIGERU & Kachara recording studio, first time in Serbia. "

KACHARA, which in Serbian stands for a room where wine was produced, was the original purpose of the present day studio space.The house is placed in the village of Bukovac, in the foot of the little mountain Fruska Gora. The village is 10 km far from Novi Sad, the capital of Vojvodina region, northern autonomy province of the present day Serbia.

The studio was build in renovated 150 years old traditional house with almost one meter tick walls made from the soil - which gives a special environmental and acoustical quality to the studio space.
