OLIVER DRAGOJEVIĆ - Malinkonija (1977)










































OLIVER DRAGOJEVIĆ is one of the most popular Croatian pop singers. Born in Split (Croatia)and raised in Vela Luka on the island of Korčula, he emerged onto the music scene in the 1970s thanks to the popular Split Festival, one of several musical annual events which began in the former Yugoslavia and still is being held in Croatia today. His speciality was music influenced by Dalmatian folklore. His first domestic hit was called "Picaferaj" in 1967. Most of his early songs were written by popular songwriter Zdenko Runjić. One of the most famous was "Nadalina" which also featured actor Boris Dvornik, and the popular Dalmatian anthems "Galeb i ja" and "Skalinada". Oliver Dragojević maintained his popularity in ensuing decades, while in the 1990s his songs became less influenced by domestic folk and more by global music trends. At that time he was often referenced as Croatia's oldest pop star. After his collaboration with Zdenko Runjić, he recorded several more albums that proved to be popular with his fan base.Today, Oliver is still active on the Croatian music scene often recognized as one of the country's most popular singers and musicians. This is his second studio album from 1977. (from wikipedia)

  1. He truly is a legend! OLIVER 10 was always my favorite record by him but pretty much all of them are awesome!

    Do you have any of his earlier singles (especially the ones that never made it onto the first two albums)?



    Also, here is an odd request but I just thought of it after reading the name OLIVER:

    Do you have the English version of "Dzuli" by Oliver Popovic?
