SUNCOKRET was a former Yugoslav acoustic rock band from Beograd. The band was formed in 1975 by Bora Đorđević (vocals and acoustic guitar), Nenad Božić (vocals and acoustic guitar) and female singers Snežana Jandrlić and Vesna Rakočević. After releasing the single "Kara Mustafa", Vesna Rakočević left the band and joined the band Zdravo, and Bilja Krstić and Gorica Popović became new Suncokret members. At the half of 1976 they were joined by bass guitarist Bata Sokić. The band released several successful singles, some of them inspired by old folk songs. In 1976, they appeared in Mića Milošević's movie "Tit for Tat", and some of their songs were used in the movie.They performed at the 1976 BOOM festival in Beograd, and a live version of their song "Moj đerdane" was released on the BOOM '76 live album. With disk jockey Zoran Modli they recorded humorous songs under the name Hajduk Stanko i Jataci. Their debut album "Moje bube" was released in 1977. Album featured previously released "Kara Mustafa" and "Moje tuge", humorous songs "Vuk i krava" and "Oglas" and ballads "Uspavanka", "Ni sam ne znam kada" and "Prvi sneg", last one, written by Dušan Mihajlović Spira (later the leader of band Doktor Spira i ljudska ćića), becoming one of Suncokret's signature songs. A live version of "Prvi sneg" was released on the BOOM '77 live album. After the album was released, keyboardist Duško Nikodijević and drummer Ljubinko Milošević became band's permanent members. In 1978, the band members refused to perform Đorđević's song "Lutka sa naslovne strane", so Đorđević and Biljana Krstić left the band and joined Rani Mraz, Đorđević remaining in Rani Mraz shortly and in 1979 forming hard rock band Riblja Čorba which will eventually become one of the top acts of the former Yugoslav rock scene. Snežana Jandrlić continued to lead new, electricized Suncokret lineup, which featured Sokić, Nikodijević and Dušan "Duda" Bezuha (guitar) and Vladimir Golubović (drums). After Golubović and Bezuha left the band, bass guitarist Branko Isaković and drummer Ivan Vdović became new Suncokret members, but after only two singles released, the band disbanded due to the members' dissidence. In 1995 Suncokret reunited for several acoustic performances. (from wikipedia)

Former Yugoslavian and Slovenian singer/songwriter Veno Dolenc and his wife Melita formed an acoustic progressive folk band SEDMINA in Ljubljana 1977, with Lado Jakša (clarinet, piano, flute), Edi Stefančič (acoustic guitar) and Božidar Ogorevc (violin, viola). Sedmina used traditional instruments and gave an alternative interpretation of folk songs. Being also a fine artist, Dolenc created interesting surrealist and dreamlike artwork of their album covers. After two albums, Veno and Melita divorced so the band split apart. The first two albums "Sedmina" and "II dejanje" are essential listen to any psychedelic/acid ethno and prog folk fans who enjoy acoustic music with male/female vocals. (by Seyo)
