Comeback Of The Week: Lepa Brena

It's the logical conclusion of Croatian retromanija: according to Jutarnji list, Yugoslavia's emblematic 1980s folk-pop singer Lepa Brena is planning a concert tour of Croatia, starting with Zagreb in 'late summer or September'.

Brena says that she's decided to tour Croatia because 'I see that retro is in fashion, mid-80s music, full of romance and love' - but is ruling out recording any duets with newer singers because they are 'complicated to record'. (Yes, that includes Severina, who's been talking about her new Bregović-produced album again ahead of her next theatrical appearance.)

Meanwhile - it's obviously one of those weeks - Bora Đorđević from the Serbian rock band Riblja Čorba will be appearing on Mirjana Hrga's talk show Epicentar to discuss the Serbian elections (on which East Ethnia and Anegdote have already contributed their own lucid thoughts). For any of its readers who might have been asleep during the last seventeen years, 24 sata's article on the show gives no more or less introduction to Đorđević than that 'at the beginning of the war the Serbian singer declared himself as a Četnik and it is well known that he politically belongs to the Radicals.'

Well, it is the TV channel that had an interview with Arkan's widow if I'm not mistaken...

Lepa Brena is OK.
Severina is OK, too.
