Vlada Divljan is one of the most prominent and most influential rock musicians from former Yugoslavia. He gained popular recognition during the early 80’s, as the leader of sensational new wave band Idoli (The Idols). Their seminal masterpiece “Odbrana i poslednji dani” (1982) was repeatedly voted the best rock album in ex-Yugoslavia and still stands as a landmark in the history of Yu-rock. In 1983, editors and critics from eight leading European magazines (Actuel, The Face, Wiener...) selected them among the most promising bands in Europe.

This album is also available in Cheap Shop - Vienna: http://shop.cheap.at/

After the break-up of Idoli, Divljan launched a successful career as a solo artist, spending even more time in his new studio, increasingly using samplers and computers. In 1991, on the brink of war in Yugoslavia, he emigrated to Sydney, Australia, and spent next six years composing music for films and theatre. In 1997, he specialized in sound design at Australian Film, Television and Radio School (AFTRS) and was nominated for prestigious AFI Award – Australian equivalent for Academy Award – in Best achievements in sound design in short film category.

After return from Australia, Divljan settled in Vienna and this period of his life and work is reflected in music on his new album. On Die Tonzentrale we find Divljan immersed in a compelling blend of electronic and acoustic sounds, various techniques of studio production, as well as rather unusual instrumental line-up (accordion, sax, cello, djembe, piano, electric guitar, percussion). In a way, Die Tonzentrale recalls somewhat peculiar radio-listening experience from way back in past, when airwaves were populated by variety of musical forms, from pop schlager to east-European jazz experiments. In collaboration with some of the best classical, rock and jazz musicians from Belgrade, his long-time friends and associates, Vlada Divljan delivers an extraordinary and challenging offering – nothing less to expect from such a fruitful and innovative artist.
