Bijelo Dugme

Bijelo Dugme (trans. White Button) was a highly influential former Yugoslav rock band, based in Sarajevo. Bijelo Dugme is widely considered to have been the most influential and popular band ever to exist in the former Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia and one of the most important acts of the Yugoslav rock scene.

Bijelo Dugme was officially formed in 1974, although the founding members, guitarist Goran Bregović, vocalist Željko Bebek, drummer Ipe Ivandić, keyboardist Vlado Pravdić and bass guitarist Jadranko Stanković, were previously active under the name Jutro. Stanković was soon replaced by former Jutro member Zoran Redžić. The band's debut album Kad bi bio bijelo dugme, released in 1975, brought them nationwide popularity with its folk-influenced hard rock sound, which was described as "pastirski rock" ("shepherd's rock") by rock journalist Dražen Vrdoljak. The band's future several releases featured similar sound, maintaining their popularity, but in the early 1980s, with the emergence of Yugoslav New Wave scene, the band moved towards New Wave, managing to remain one of the most popular bands in the country. After the departure Bebek in 1983, the band was joined by vocalist Mladen Vojičić "Tifa", with whom the band recorded only one, self-titled album, with which the band moved towards pop rock. The band's last vocalist, Alen Islamović, joined the band in 1986, and with him Bijelo Dugme recorded two albums, disbanding, with the rising tensions in Yugoslavia, in 1989.
