60 Seconds With…Darko Zoric

Darko ZoricThe family has been entertaining Australia’s Croatian community for nearly half a century.

When did you first start singing? I started singing when I was 12, it was a natural progression from playing piano. After learning classical piano, I had an urge to incorporate my voice with my piano playing.

How did you get into it? My father has been entertaining and singing for the Croatian community for the last 40 years. As a young boy going to watch my father perform, he would push me onto stage at the end of his gigs to perform a few numbers, which provided a very valuable learning experience for me, and taught me how to perform in front of a live audience. It also ignited my love of music.
