Zvonko Bogdan Lyrics Akordi
He was born in the city of Sombor (present day Vojvodina, Serbia) during the
World War II, when that part of Yugoslavia was under Axis Hungarian
occupation, to a Bunjevac family. He spent the childhood on salaš (farm) of
his mother-side grandfather Stipan Kukuruzar; his other grandfather Franja was
a coachman, tamburitza musician and bon viveur.
After a brief adventure in local Sombor theatre, he headed for Belgrade, in
age of 19, to enter the drama academy, and started singing in Belgrade kafanas
to earn for living, and he found himself in this job.
The engagement in Belgrade's "Union" hotel, meeting place of numerous
journalists and bohemes, boosted his career; for almost 30 years, he would
sing in "Union" whenever he visited Belgrade.
His first solo concert was held at Kalemegdan terrace. In 1971, he recorded "Hej
salaši na severu Backe", the song he would be forever remembered for.
From 1972, he performed with Janika Balázs' orchestra on Novi Sad's
Petrovaradin fortress, a hallmark of tamburitza music.
During the turbulent 1990s and Yugoslav wars, Bogdan largely withdrew from
public performances. As he explained, "Simply, I wasn't in a mood to work.
Also, the piracy took so much momentum that I was sick even of thoughts of
composing and music... I hope those ugly times have gone and that we would be
able to live like humans again".
In 2004, Bogdan performed on Novi Sad Exit festival, mostly devoted to
pop/rock, also held on Petrovaradin fortress; it was a tribute of new
generations to the old bard and the site which was the cornerstone of the
Tekst Osam tamburasa sa Petrovaradina Akordi
Donesite mi rujna vina
hocu price da se setim
bas na ovom divnom mestu
gde ugledah oci njene
Zaustavite Dunav i kazaljke stare
to je pesma moja i pesma moje drage
nek me svuda prate s pesmom rujna vina
osam tamburasa s Petrovaradina
U belom ces sa mnom poci
vodicu te na vencanje
bacace ti cvece srece
rastavit' nas niko nece
Tamburasi, svirajte mi
divne pesme od davnina
ja cu ljubit' kose njene
i polako piti vina
