As the title of Darko’s first pop album suggests, Darko’s music life has been a long ‘Road To Somewhere’. His music career for the largest part was not planned, or deliberate. Learning classical piano from an early age, Darko’s earliest musical influences was of his father who was a successful performing musician in his own rite. He soon found himself thrust on the stage at an early age at the many functions his father would be performing at, which eventually paved the way for his love of performing and passion of music.
Darko is most widely known for his adaptation of the evergreen hit ‘Unchained Melody’ which he recorded and performed in the Croatian language, giving the song the title ‘Slobodna Melodija’. He was also invited to perform ‘Slobodna Melodija’ LIVE on the popular Croatian morning show ‘Dobro Jutro Hrvatska’. Darko also released a modern rock version of ‘Živjela Croatia’ with band Stara Škola which has proved to be a popular release amongst the Croatian Diaspora around the world.
The success of Darko’s first Croatian album release ‘Sjećanje Na Prošlost’ culminated in him being invited to perform for the Croatian President Kolinda Grabar-Kitarović on the 21st of July 2017 at her office in Pantovčak – Zagreb. Darko performed ‘Bože, čuvaj Hrvatsku’ and ‘To Je Tvoja Zemlja’ for the Croatian President in front of an audience of 800.
