Welcome to my First CD!!
For more than 50 years, Serbian music has been an integral part of my life and identity, from the time I started playing the accordion as a child, to my more than 50 years as a member of the St. Sava Serbian Church Choir (Mississauga Ontario Canada). Above all, my 52 years (and counting) as a member of LIKA Orchestra have given me the voice to express my love of Serbian music. This is my first solo project outside the comfortable boundaries of LIKA and it has allowed me to explore different musical aspects – hence the title, “New Horizons-Novi Vidici”. Early on, I decided that I would be accompanied by those members of my family and friends who are musically talented – I hope you will agree that they have provided some amazing displays of musical aptitude - and without them, and the steadfast support of my wife Olga, this CD would not be possible.
How to describe my CD? Well, it is based on Serbian folk/narodno music to be sure, but many of the songs have an ‘edge’ which gives the CD its unique sound. I have included a variety of musical styles and rhythms that I hope will resonate for those who purchase this CD. The CD contains a number of well known tracks and some lesser known - plus a brand new one written by yours truly, and Angelina Racic called “Oprosti”.
I am proud of this CD and I hope that it brings you much enjoyment.
