Oliver Dragojevic, one of Croatia’s most popular singers and musicians will perform at the Royal Albert Hall in London on April 19th 2010.
Dragojevic emerged onto the music scene in the 1970s and had his first number one with “Picaferaj” in 1967. His music was influenced by Dalmatian folklore. Most of his early songs were written by popular songwriter Zdenko Runjic. The most famous include "Nadalina", which also featured actor Boris Dvornik, and the popular 'Dalmatian anthems' "Galeb i ja" and "Skalinada".
Dragojević maintained his popularity in ensuing decades, becoming more influenced by global music trends. After his collaboration with Runjic, he recorded several more albums that proved his ongoing popularity. In the last few years Dragojevic performed at Carnegie Hall in New York and the Olympia in Paris.
At the Royal Albert Hall concert, Dragojevic will be accompanied by guitarist Ante Gelo and an orchestra conducted by Alan Bjelinski.
