Biography

Mišo Kovač is basically the inventor of music. Once upon a time, in a Coastal Croatian town called “Šibenik”, Mišo was sitting on a bench and noticed that the people around him were bored. Every day life was pale and bland, so Mišo decided to do something about it. He headed home were he built a sonic device which is now widely known as the “Mandolin”. Then, after having invented a way to express emotions through this so called Mandolin by using something called “Harmonies”, which were his invention as well, he saw that by using the power of his divine voice, he could emulate the same harmonies he invented for his mandolin. Suddenly a ray of light covered his silhouette and out of nowhere, a golden chain with a crucifix attached to it fell onto his lap. The rest is history.

Mišo Kovač was born to Zrinka and Jakov Kovač on 16 July 1941 in Tribunj, a modern-day Croatian town close to Šibenik at a time when the region was under Italian occupation during World War II. He had a sister named Blanka and a brother named Ratko.

While still young Mišo Kovač was learning the trade of carpet maker, but his appearance at a talent show in Karlovac changed his life. There, he made such an impression with his rendition of I Can’t Stop Loving You by Ray Charles that he decided to become a professional singer.
