Biography

Former Yugoslavian and Slovenian singer/songwriter Veno Dolenc and his wife Melita formed an acoustic progressive folk band Sedmina in Ljubljana 1977, with Lado Jaksa (clarinet, piano, flute), Edi Stefancic (acoustic guitar) and Bozidar Ogorevc (violin, viola). “Sedmina” means “the seventh” in English and is also interpreted as the seventh night after a funeral when family gives memorial to the deceased. Sedmina used traditional instruments and gave an alternative interpretation of folk songs. Being also a fine artist, Dolenc created interesting surrealist and dreamlike artwork of their album covers. After two albums, Veno and Melita divorced so the band split apart. They both led solo careers, but Dolenc also formed a group DUMA with singer Klarisa Jovanovic in the late 1980s, whereof the new Sedmina grew out, releasing three more albums in the 1990s. The final line-up included Mitja Perko (guitar), Slavko Meglic (double bass), Jean-Pierre Babatunde (percussion) and many guest musicians.

The first two albums “Sedmina” and “II dejanje” are essential listen to any psychedelic/acid ethno and prog folk fans who enjoy acoustic music with male/female vocals. They both were reissued by Italian label Mellotron in 1996.

    Sedmina - II Dejanje 1982 - The band featured the same line-up like on the debut. However, the arrangements are somewhat different, offering longer tracks and more psychedelic, acid-folk sound. The leading instruments are clarinet, violin and saxophone, with backing acoustic guitars. "II dejanje" is a very dark album. -.-.-.-. om hari om ..... ॐ
