Guest: Damir Urban

One of the best known actors from the former Yugoslavia, Rade Šerbedžija is also a director, poet, musician – and a true man of the world. Having already entertained audiences in Slovenia on numerous occasions with his group Zapadni Kolodvor, he is now set to host a unique artistic evening as part of the summer Ljubljana Festival, presenting a broad selection of works from a catalogue that he has been building since 1974, the year he released his first album. His “songs of love, friendship and feelings” – which can be variously characterised as hits, evergreen favourites, “old town songs” (starogradske pesme)  and chansons – will be interspersed with interludes of prose and poetry. He will be joined on stage by remarkable musicians who combine numerous influences: pianist, composer, arranger, producer and educator Vasil Hadžimanov, who directly and sincerely blends Balkan motifs with jazz; guitarist, composer, improviser and educator Miroslav Tadić combines baroque and classical music, Balkan folk, flamenco, jazz, blues and rock; and violinist, vocalist, composer and poet Yvette Holzwarth is active in the Balkan, Arabic, pop, jazz and experimental genres. Also appearing as a guest will be Damir Urban, a former member of the band Laufer who has been a solo musician since 1996 and is one of the key figures in the regional modern rock scene.
