Former Yugoslavia Bookmark and Share

The Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia was the Yugoslav state that existed from the end of World War II (1945) until it was formally dissolved in 1992 (de facto dissolved in 1991 with no leaders representing it) amid the Yugoslav wars. was a socialist state that comprised the area of the present-day independent states of Bosnia and Herzegovina, Croatia, Republic of Macedonia, Montenegro, Serbia, Slovenia and Kosovo. The Non-Aligned SFR Yugoslavia was never part of the Eastern Bloc and it was opened to western influences (the West to some extent even supported Yugoslavia as a 'buffer zone' to the Warsaw Pact).

The Yugoslav pop and rock music scene always was well developed and covered in the media, which included numerous magazines, radio and tv shows. When one comes from the former Yugoslav states you probably can hear the difference between pop music made in Croatia regarded to that of Serbia (for instance). For us it is almost impossible so we gather the region in this one chapter about pop music in former Yugoslavia.
