Bajaga i Instruktori are one of the most successful and influential pop-rock groups in the history of the former Yugoslavia and current Serbia. Their string of albums and awards in the mid-to-late 80s rounded out the golden age of Yugoslav pop-rock. The album “Sa druge strane jastuka” is considered to be one of the best Yugoslav-Serbian pop-rock albums of all time.
People from Belgrade feel a particular attachment to Bajaga’s material of the 1980s and early 1990s, as his music was thought in large part to symbolize that city. Bajaga i Instruktori’s recent concert appearances in the former Yugoslavia, as well as in the remainder of Europe, Canada and the United States, have proven that the group still enjoys an extensive fan base.
Momcilo Bajagic “Bajaga” is widely accepted to be the leading figure in the group. He is regarded as an outstanding lyricist and composer, having also written many songs for the famous pop singer Zdravko Colic. Respect for Bajaga remains high in Serbia, particularly in upper/intellectual social circles.
