in #life3 years ago (edited)

This last few days had been really sad.

My favourite singer from Croatia died.

He died at the age of 71 in Split.

He got an amazing goodbye event.

This happened in the place where he was born.

It's at the island of Korcula.

It's called Vela luka.

That's where they said goodbye to Oliver.

He had many great hits.

Actually, one of his songs is probably my favourite one.

It has "soul".

The song is called Pismo moja.

In translation, it means "My song".

But in Croatian dialect which they speak at Split.

I don't know if I can post the song here, but I'll do it anyway.

We actually bought his CD.

We'll be listening when we're going on a gig.

He's really loved in our musician community.

And in his honour, we'll learn few of his songs we don't know.

He'll be singing on some other world from now on.

He'll always be in our hearts.

Especially for me since I'm a musician, and I play many of his songs.

He lived a full life and he's loved in many countries.

He'll be listened for many years to come.

His legacy will live forever.

ZAGREB, Croatia (AP) — Oliver Dragojevic, one of the most popular pop singers in the former Yugoslavia, has died at 70.

Croatian media say Dragojevic died early Sunday in a hospital in his hometown of Split, a city on Croatia’s Adriatic coast. He was diagnosed with lung cancer a year ago.

Dragojevic gained huge following in the former Yugoslavia with his romantic hits sung in a specific Dalmatian dialect of Croatia.

Dragojevic remained popular among former Yugoslavs even after the country broke up in a war in the 1990s. Media throughout the region have reported his death, describing Dragojevic as a “legendary singer.”

Although highly popular in Serbia, he refused to stage concerts there after the bloodshed of the 1991-95 Croatian war for independence against the Serb-led Yugoslav army.

describing Dragojevic as a “legendary singer.”

He is definitely a legend.

One of the most iconic singers from this area.
