Band recommendation - UMOR

Umor is Zagreb based band and very dear to my heart (my boyfriend Branimir is a guitar player in Umor). They've been playing together since 1998 as Crop Circle, but they changed their name in 2007 when second guitarist left the band. They published one split EP with Croatian band Cojones, one Self  Titled EP and this May they released their first album called Pralayaah for the local label Sonic Doom Records.

They describe themselves as loud and heavy atmospheric rock/metal band with stoner and doom influences, but what I like the most is the cosmic end/beginning of the world atmosphere they produce. The songs last pretty long and every song seem like soundtrack of the moments in which you can lose yourself completely
Check Umor tour dates on Facebook or Umor blog maybe you can catch them somewhere or download and listen on Bandcamp.

And one last thing, Branimir and I did a visual identity for Pralayaah and my photo is on the cover of the album. Thanks to our friend Nina Jukić for permission to use some of her photos too. Let me know what do you think and how do you like Umor down in comments. Thanks*

There comes a time when a man finds himself in front of a dark uncrossable abyss, which he himself has spent years digging. He cannot go forward, and has no way back. Words have failed, tears won't help, and who would he call out to? He can't even remember his own name. Then the man sees that on this god's green earth there is but one true suffering: the torment of guilty conscience. -  Ivo Andrić

Free People May

Free People may catalog shot in Hawaii is stunning. They made cool video for the collection too, makes me smile every time. Can't wait for the summer to come and to wear sandals and walk barefoot on rocky beaches. In Zagreb is also beautiful and sunny but I'd rather be in Hawaii, well who wouldn't! ;)

And the winner is... picked lovely miss Ivana Krizmanic, congrats Ivana!!! :))) :*** You will receive you're necklace today at the rehearsal. ;)

I haven't mentioned this before, but ChocoJazz is honoured to be in a play that will be premiered in June.
Soon I will write about the play and the most important persons behind it, a super creative Argentinian director Renata Carola Gatica and one of the most talented Croatian choreographers Natalija Manojlovic.
Love you girls! <3

Have a lovely Friday everyone!

Exhibition alert!

Tomorrow night at 20h in kino Tuškanac my dear colleague and a very passionate artist Ljiljana Babic  has an opening exhibition of her paintings. She invited my band ChocoJazz to warm up the atmosphere. If you are around come and visit the exhibition and listen to some choco and jazzy sounds. 

Also, for the first time in Zagreb there will be NOIR FESTIVAL in town and after Liljana's exhibition you can stay in kino Tuškanac to see a projection of Orson Welles's The Lady from Shanghai.

If you feel more like going out and partying you can go to club SAX and listen to some new rocking local bands. With so many happenings in town there's no way you can stay at home, go out! ;)
