Three divas on KotorArt Don Branko’s Music Days
Music divas of „ex-yu“ music scene, Tereza Kesovija, Gabi Novak and Radojka Šverko will present themselves on the August 6th on the 17th KotorArt Don Branko’s Music Days. They will be accompanied by Ante Gelo (guitar), Robert Vrbančić (bass) and jazz pianist Matija Dedić.
“Legendary Croatian divas Tereza, Radojka and Gabi perform very rarely in Croatia and the region but they have never performed in Montenegro like this before. The concert will be held on the Coca-Cola Stage and at the same time this will also be a reminder on golden music days of the last century. Gabi Novak and Matija Dedić performed in Kotor last year, at the Music Forces United concert which also closed last year’s edition of KotorArt festival. They have performed along Bisera Veletanlić and Vasil Hadžimanov.”- Sara Lakičević, PR of the KotorArt
