Serbia Sundays: Serbia’s Best Band Van Gough

Serbia Sundays….again, it is all about premium guests.
This time we proudly present Van Gogh, one of the most popular bands in Serbia nowadays, formed in January 1986. Later that year, their first album “Van Gogh” was released. They played a lot of shows but broke up and didn’t play until 1990. In a new line-up, with Zvonimir Djukic (alias Djule Van Gogh) as a singer, guitarist and frontman, they released their second album “Svet je moj” (“The World Is Mine”) in 1991. With the third album “Strast” (Passion, 1993.) Van Gogh became a powerful trio. The next album “Hodi” (can be translated as “Walk” but also as “Come On”, 1996.) turned them into superstars in Serbia: according to more than 20.000 people who have voted in 1998. on the Internet, Van Gogh was officially the best rock’n’roll band in the country. With albums such as “Opasan ples” (“Dangerous Dance”, 1999.), “DrUnder” (2002.) and “Kolo” (“The Circle”, 2006), they managed to keep that position. In May 2007 & November 2009. in a packed Belgrade Arena, Van Gogh played their biggest shows to date.

Van Gogh in 2007. received MTV’s Best Adriatic Act award in Munich, Germany.

Today’s line-up: Djule Van Gogh (vocals/guitar), Srboljub Radivojevic (drums).
