Tekstovi Pesama Zvonko Bogdan Lyrics Akordi
Zvonko Bogdan born January 5, 1942 in Sombor, Serbia is an eminent performer of
traditional folk songs of Serbia, Croatia, Hungary and Romania. Apart from
being famous as a singer, he is also a composer, painter and harness racer. Zvonko Bogdan is of Bunjevac origin.
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 salas (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
salasi na severu Backe", the song he would be forever remembered for.
From 1972, he performed with Janika Balas 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.

Tekst pesme Osam tamburasa sa Petrovaradina Zvonko Bogdan
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
