Biography

Oliver Dragojević is a Croatian pop singer.

A Croatian, native of the town Vela Luka on the Island of Korčula, Oliver Dragojević emerged on the music scene in the 1970s thanks to the very popular Split, Croatia, music festival. His specialty were songs influenced by Dalmatian (Croatian)folklore. His first domestic hit was called “Picaferaj” in 1967. Most of those songs were written by legendary songwriter Zdenko Runjić. One of the most popular was Nadalina, which also featured famous actor Boris Dvornik and the popular ‘Dalmatian anthems’ “Galeb i ja” and “Skalinada”.

Dragojević maintained his popularity in ensuing decades, while in the 1990s his songs became less influenced by domestic folk and more by global music trends. At that time he was often referenced as Croatia’s oldest pop star. After the collaboration with the legendary Zdenko Runjić he recorded a few albums that yet again exceeded everyone’s expectations.

Today, Oliver is the most loved Croatian singer and continues to delight audiencies with his wonderful voice and piano talent
