Magnifico

With his first albums Od srca do srca (1993), Gdo je čefur (1996) and Sexy Boy (1999), Magnifico established himself as an unorthodoxly versatile composer and musician in the former Yugoslavia. He is a musician whose music draws a world without borders and, as a result, when performed live, the audience has a unique experience.

In 2004, Sony Music entertainment released Magnifico's fourth studio album, Export/Import, including the hit Hir ai kam, Hir ai go and the eclectic Giv Mi Mani. The diverse album, with its deftly interwoven Balkan rhythms, was well received on radio stations and in discotheques around the world, introducing Magnifico to an even wider international audience. Magnifico's music has also appeared on the popular compilations Putumayo, BalkanBeats vol.3 and Swing Style vol.3.  In a constant search for new creative outlets through which to challenge himself self-reflexively, Magnifico has also been involved in the creation of film scores for Stereotip, Prepisani (2010), Montevideo, bog te video (2010) in Montevideo, vidimo se (2014).

Respecting the traditional ways of recording film music, he collaborated with the Orchestra of the Army of Serbia Stanislav Biničič in the soundtrack of Montevideo, God of this Video. For the later film version in 2014, he adds to the mix a collaboration with Spanish singer Luz Casal.

The collaboration with Serbian director Dragan Bjelogrlić continued in 2018, with the music for the series Shadows Over the Balkans, where Magnifico once again provided the anthem, this time with the song Divna.
