ZAGREB, 6 March 2020 – A remake of a legendary Croatian song recorded in 1991 by the nation’s most prominent musicians at the time has premiered on Friday night.
The song ‘Moja domovina’ (“My Homeland”) was originally recorded in 1991 as a charity single by “Croatian Band Aid” (Hrvatski Band Aid).
The mega-group of singers consisted of Croatian music stars of the time and featured Doris Dragović, Oliver Dragojević, Jasna Zlokić, Danijela Martinović, Sanja Doležal, Meri Cetinić, Dino Dvornik, Aki Rahimovski, Matko Jelavić, Emilija Kokić, Severina, Arsen Dedić, Zorica Kondža, Boris Novković, Jasmin Stavros, Ivo Amulić, Vlado Kalember, Krunoslav Slabinac, Ivo Robić, Gabi Novak, Tereza Kesovija, Tajči, Josipa Lisac, Zvonko Špišić, Dragutin Mlinarec, Đuka Čaić, Zdravko Škender, Ivica Šerfezi, Ljupka Dimitrovska, Dalibor Brun, Milo Hrnić, Mišo Kovač, Davor Gobac, Stanko Šarić, Zdenka Vučković, Jura Stublić, Mladen Bodalec, and Ljiljana Nikolovska.
The song was released in the initial stages of the Croatian War of Independence. Although almost three decades have now passed since the song was first aired, its popularity hasn’t diminished through the years and for the first time a new group of artists have been brought together to form Croatian Band Aid once and performed the version live at the Golden Studio Awards Gala tonight.
Just like back in 1991, there were 58 artists involved in the new version and apart from singers such as Massimo, Jasna Zlokić, Damir Kedžo, Goran Karan, Franka Batelić, Zdenka Kovačiček, Marko Tolja, Mia Dimšić and Jelena Rozga, the remake featured well-know actress Zrinka Cvitesic and Croatian national football team coach Zlatko Dalic.
