ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Singer songwriter, composer and guitar player, Branko Galoic was born in Zagreb, Yugoslavia Croatia in 1973. He grew up in a small town called Ivanic Grad where he picked up guitar at the age of 17. He is a self- taught musician. His talent for music was spotted in the local community of musicians where he also formed his first band. Right from the beginning he combined rock with traditional Balkan influences.

In the year 2000 he moved to Amsterdam, the Netherlands and started from scratch again. A few years later, he recorded his first record, Above the Roofs, which was released internationally and received great reviews in the European Press. (Album of the week Independent and one of the 100 best records of 2006 by Jazzism magazine, the Netherlands) Now he’s presenting his second album entiteled Skakavac (Grasshopper). True to his Balkan roots his music is inspired by the traditional and gypsy music from ex-Yugoslavia but at the same time especially due to the influence of the many musicians from all over the world, which he met in Amsterdam and often played all through the years his music is able to communicate with many different styles. Blending Balkans sound with klezmer, jazz, rock, rap as well as Latin and South American music, Branko has created his own unique sound.


Branko Galoic je gitarist,kompozitor i kantautor roden u Zagrebu 1973.
Odrastao je u Ivanic Gradu a pocinje se baviti muzikom u sedamnaestoj godini.
Njegova talent je bio uocen na lokalnoj muzickoj gdje je osnivao i svirao u
par rock bendova a zatim je snimio prvi autorski cd za kojeg ne uspijeva pronaci izdavaca. Godine 2000 odlazi u Amsterdam gdje ispocetka svira na ulici prvih godin dana azatim osniva prve bendove.
Nakon dvije godine srece proslavljenog producent Dragog Sestica koji mu potpisuje produkciju za prvi album”Above the roofs”.Album jako dobro prolazi kod holandske ali i europske kritike(cd tijedna-The Independent) a po izboru holandskog muzickog magazina Jazissm uvrsten je medju sto najboljih albuma 2006.
U Hrvatskoj najveci kompliment dobija od Drazena Vrdoljaka koji njegov album u cijelosti pusta u emisiji na radio Zagrebu i prepoznaje u njemu veliki talent.
Branko se vraca sa drugim albumom”Skakavac” u kojem kombinira balkanski
zvuk sa klezzmerom,jazzom,repom i juznoamerickom muzikom i tako
stvara specifican autorski pecat.
