Lidija Dokuzovic Trio 

Lidija Dokuzovic and her Malmö based trio release their first album with the title I´ve heard (Čula jesam). It is a compilation of 11 stunningly beautiful folk songs mostly from Croatia. In her unique and emotional journey through the Balkans, she is followed by her 2 favorite musicians: guitarist Allan Skrobe, a Malmöit with Croatian roots who plays Swedish folk music and the double bass player Jesper Nordberg, who has 2 passions: Roma music from Serbia and improvised music. While keeping the old stories and retelling the tradition in new clothes, the trio made a unique combination of Balkan, improvised music, pop and jazz with the influences of Swedish folk.

Lidija Dokuzovic is a singer, vocal coach and choir leader. For more than 20 years, she has been exploring and interpreting Balkan folk music, searching through archives, songbooks and doing field research. She also holds workshops where she transmits her knowledge to others.

She is the founder and vocalist of the

Macedonian/Croatian neo-folk band Afion and the lead singer in the rakija-party band Zykopops. While living in Croatia, Lidija was the conductor of the Serbian and Macedonian minority choirs in Zagreb and a leader of the activist choir Le Zbor, the first LGBTQ choir in the Balkans. After moving to to Sweden Lidija became a member of the free jazz-Balkan band anfTrion and formed her own Lidija Dokuzovic Trio. She is also involved in music shows for children.

    Afion - Afion 2006

    Zykopops! are a deranged trash folk band from Croatia whose slogan “Zykopops …worse than Turbofolk!” is already gaining them notoriety throughout the Balkans. Their punk reworkings of classic and obscure traditional songs from Croatia, Serbia, Macedonia and Hungary combine a heroic disdain for detail with Ramones tempos and Hajduk virtuoso nonsense

    Afion - Cudni svti 2008

    Afion - Treci Bilbil 2020

    The album “Treći bilbil” (The third nightingale) was released on May 4, 2020. The third nightingale stands for all artists who act in the most unpleasant times and therefore put themselves in danger.

    It is a tribute to all the singers who sing in a “wrong dialect” or perform songs from the “wrong side of the border”. The album showcases nine songs mostly from the Pannonian area of Croatia (Medjimurje & Slavonia) and Macedonia.
