Def needs to be a thread on Bosnian music widely regarded as the best music in the former Yugoslavia... Long live Bosnian & Serbian music!

Here's a couple of nostalgic ones to get things started...

^ Is Jasmin Muharemovic Esad Plavi's brother? Because it says so on wikipedia but they also stated that Esad Plavi was born in Cape town, South Africa so I don't really know :confused:

I'm addicted to Serif Konjevic. I love his voice. Growing up my uncle got me into him because he use to listen to him all the time. Best live performer imo, as long as he doesn't fcuk around too much and show off, since he ruins the melody that way.

Zagrli me, zagrli

Bijelo Dugme is really the best group in former Yugoslavia. We could fill this forum with their songs

I like BD too..a lot of good songs. But people from Krajina tend to be pretty big into folk.
Like I prefer Serif and Halid over BD.

it might not be "cool" but whatever.

Indeed. I think it's impossible to find a person who doesn't adore their songs.
No, there are a number of us.
"Rock scena je zapravo bila podijeljena... svi su hodali u nekakvim glamoroznim... imali su nekakve bunde... znas ono, Bijelo Dugme... Valjak... oni su imali bunde, nekakve visoke cizme... znas ono... i tekstovi ovo, to je sve bilo nesto o ovcama, nesto o... o nekakvim, ono, znas ono, stalno nesto momci sa sela zapravo... pa nam to nije nikako... nije bas ulazilo u uho." - Jasenko Houra
"Then Pronek went to the offices of Valter, the student paper, to submit a scathing review of the new Bijelo dugme album, which he described as 'the lowest form of Balkan peasanthood hidden under the gingerbread veneer of hard rock stolen from the stadiums of America.' He kept repeating it to himself as if it were a poem." - Aleksandar Hemon, "Nowhere Man"

Jasenko Houra is hardly an authority on anything, let alone rock and roll... Hemon, on the other hand, is a down to earth genius.
Of course, Dugme's artistic legacy is highly debatable, but the cultural impact is undeniable. And whether someone likes it or not the source of their artistic expression was deeply rooted in their surroundings.

Yeah, I agree with you, but I also agree with what Houra said there. And besides, what does it say about Dugme and Houra when that same Dugme jumped on the Novi val bandwagon that Houra helped create? A bandwagon that, at least in Houra's case, was pretty derivative as it was.

I like Bijelo Dugme to the extent that they're one of the few bands who everyone knows the lyrics to. But, at the same time, it's just a guilty pleasure... I can't really take them seriously. "Ne spavaj mala moja" is such a blatant rip-off of Led Zeppelin's "Rock'n'roll" that even my American friends notice it.

Hemon really nailed it... they're the worst of 70s Anglo-rock mixed with the worst of Bosnian kafana-folk. That's exactly why they were so successful too: they tapped into the market for turbofolk twenty years before turbofolk even existed.

Or, as my dad put it: "Indexi su za prave Sarajlije, a Bijelo dugme za sitnu raju." :D

I don't disagree at all, but there is one thing that always sores my eyes when it comes to this. Namely, put in a context of what the music scene had to offer at that time and, even more importantly, put in a broader socio-cultural context, Bijelo Dugme was as avant-garde as it could get for 95% of the public. They, of course, were far from it but to suggest anything else that gained any kind of popularity in those days was, is nothing but delusional. The examples are countless. Therefore, every quasi snobist attempt of dismissing their music purely as a turbo folk equivalent of that era really means walking on thin ice. I'm sure your dad's comment comes accompanied by a little wink but black and white it is all surely not.
