in Bern met a personal trainer who made me do a guerrilla show in a small cozy bar in her neighborhood called Zar (which payed for the last trains) – picture taken the morning after:

the night before I had an enthusiastic crowd of 3 people in Bärner Mitti (in the end there were 6). During a break a couple who was walking outside jumped on stage and made an expected duet:

I’m still missing the chickens, the trains, the personal trainer, the mad dancers in Solothurn and the river Aare. I’m hoping to return in 2016!

I don’t mean one night stand, I mean one night band! During the show on Too Cute To Cute! at the Moriska Paviljongen in Malmö, I had two Carmencitas (Ida Christina and Merima Dizdarević), one Klaus Nomi (Vladica Culic) and one big Mama (Žana Erdeljan) with me on stage.

Pancevo Film Festival & more

I enjoy becoming a comics character from time to time! This time I appeared in Lee Kennedy‘s comics for Pancevac newspaper upon her visit to Pancevo. I had met Lee for the first time in 2006, during my first visit to Serbia when I performed and showed some drawings at the GRRR! Comics Festival (which was also my 3rd concert ever and first one outside Portugal). Since then I’ve returned many times to Serbia but this was actually my first tour outside the Belgrade/Pancevo area (went to Subotica, Uzice, Novi Sad, Deliblato Sands), plus a trip to Macedonia including a gig in Skopje and a festival in Vinica, ending at the first edition of the PAFF: very nice film festival and it seems I always have the best audiences in these regions!

And there was a long article published on Vreme magazine after my concert in KC Grad. Translation from Serbian to English arriving soon!

internet radio + soundtracks + europe tour dates

My home recordings are now on the playlist of my new favorite internet radio, Shirley and Spinoza. Yay! Their wide music selection goes from ethnic music to novelty songs, moog albums, collages, old timey radio, pirate webcasts, field recordings, etc.

I’m starting to work on a soundtrack for Catarina de Oliveira’s movie trilogy “Trois Vieilles Histoires”, which she started shooting in Marseille during a residence last year. In Kraków I will record a song for an animation film by Urszula Palusinska, who recently won an award at Ilustarte 2014 in Portugal.

Recently I made small improvements on my home recording studio and I’ve been posting new demos with electronic sounds using analogue synths on soundcloud.

In June I will do my first tour in Italy, from there hopping to Poland, and at the end of June I will tour in Belgium:
