Korni Grupa (
Serbian Cyrillic: Корни Група; trans. "Korni Band") were a former Yugoslav rock band. Formed by famous composer Kornelije Kovač, band's various lineups included a number of famous musicians - singers Dado Topić, Zdravko Čolićand Zlatko Pejakovićamong others.
1968 - 1974
Korni Grupa was formed in September 1968 in
Belgradeby former Indexi keyboardist Kornelije Kovač. The first lineup of the band included guitarist Borko Kacl (a former Zlatni Dečacimember), bass guitarist Bojan Hreljac, (a former Elipse member), drummer Vladimir "Furda" Furduj (a former Elipse member) and female singer Miroslava "Seka" Kojadinović. The band had its live appearance in Belgrade's Dom sindikata at the sportsman-of-the-year award ceremony. Korni Grupa performed with female dancerswhich pleasently suprised the audience. Soon afterwards the band was invited to perform in Radio Belgradeshow "Studio VI vam pruža šansu". Miroslava Kojadinović did not like the choise of the songs and she refused to sing, so on the band's appearance in the show Kovač provided the vocals. After this performance Miroslava Kojadinović was excluded from the band and started a short-lasting solo career.
New Korni Grupa vocalist became soul singer Dušan "Prele" Prelević. At the time Kovač wanted to perform
progressive rockbut the critics expected simple and commercial songs, so Kovač wrote simple song "Cigu-ligu" with which Korni Grupa performed at 1968 Jugovizijafestival in Zagreb. Prelević arrived drunk to the performance and went into an argument with Kovač, so soon afterwards he was excluded from the band. New Korni Grupa singer became Dalibor Brunfrom Rijeka, a former Uraganiand Bohemi member. With Brun Korni grupa recorded their first hits "Magična ruka", "Sonata" and "Dzum-ram". Korni Grupa appeared at Singing Europe festival in Netherlandsperforming folk-oriented song "Pastir i cvet", winning the-most-original-band award. At the 1969 festival in Opatijathey perfomed song "Devojčice mala". They held their first concert in Belgrade on November 6, 1969 in Dom omladine. The cocert was titled "Uz malu pomoć naših frendova" (With A Little Help from Our Friends").
In 1969 Dalibor Brun left the band conventionaly, an the band's new singer became a former
Dinamitimember Dado Topićwho soon brought another former Dinamiti member, guitaist Josip Bočekto the band. Kacl soon left the band, and retired from music (and died in a car accidentin the beggining of 1980s). With Topić Korni Grupa turned to more progressive-oriented sound, recording songs "Jedna žena", "Prvo svetlo u kući borj 4", classical music-inspired "Etida" and "Žena je luka a čovek brod". At the 1970 Zagreb music festival Korni Grupa won both audience and jury awards. The same year they recorded music for Miša Radivojević's movie "Bube u glavi". This project was followed by a number of hit songs: "Trla baba lan" (which will later be recorded in French by singer Dalida, and later on in several other different languages by number of artists) and "Slika", among others.
In 1971 Korni Grupa recorded musical poem "1941." on lyrics of
Branko Ćopić. Josipa Lisacmade a guest appearance in the song. The band spent a month in Paris, playing at fashion showwhich presented "Prokleta Jerina" line of clothing by fashion designerAleksandar Joksimović. In 1971 Topić left the band and formed Time. New Korni Grupa vocalist became a former Ambasadorimember Zdravko Čolić, who remained the band's vocalist for only six months, recording single with songs "Gospa Mica gazdarica", "Kukavica" and "Pogledaj u nebo". After leaving Korni Grupa he started a highly successful solo career.
Zlatni Akordiand Had member Zlatko Pejakovićbecame the band's new singer. With Pejaković Korni Grupa recorded their first full-lenght album, "Korni Grupa", which is considered one of the milestones in the history of former Yugoslav rock. At the time of album release Korni Grupa was one of the four former Yugoslav rock bands with a full-lenght album ( Grupa 220, Žeteociand Time being the other three), as the scene revolved mostly around vinyl singles. Album featured complex songs "Put na Istok", "Bezglave Ja Ha horde", "Moj bol", "Glas sa obale boja". The band performed at the 1972 Montreux Jazz Festival. At the end of 1973 in ItalyKorni Grupa recorded a symphonic rock English languagealbum " Not An Ordinary Life", which they released under the name The Cornelians. On the Yugoslav scene band had huge success with songs "Oj, dodole", "Ivo Lola", "Znam za kim zvono zvoni" (which featured guest singer Ditka Haberl), "Divlje jagode", "Miris" (with lyrics from Charles Baudelaire's poem) and "Praštanje" (with lyrics by poet Brana Crnčević) At the spring of 1974 they won first place at festival in Opatija with song "Moja generacija" and represented Yugoslavia at the 1974 Eurovision Song Contest. Single with "Moja generacija" and shortened version of "Jednoj ženi" was released in Italy. The same year music magazine " Music Week" declared Korni Grupa Yugoslav band of the year.
Disapointed with little success "Not An Ordinary Life" saw and 12th place won at the Eurovision Song Contest, Kovač decided to disban Korni Grupa. They held two farewell concerts in Studio M in
Novi Sad. Part of the concerts recording was released on the first former Yugoslav double album" Mrtvo more" (" Dead Sea"). One record features their single songs, representing mainstream and more commercial side of Korni Grupa, while other features live recordings, representing their progressive and more serious side. Various artists live album " Randevu s muzikom" released in 1977 features Korni Grupa songs "I ne tako obićan život" and "Jedna žena" recorded at Novi Sad farewell concerts.
After Korni Grupa disbaned Kovač started a successful solo career, Pejaković turned to
pop music, Boček and Hreljac became studio musicians and Furduj started a jazzcareer.
The band reunited in 1987 with Dado Topić to perform, alongside
Indexi, Time, YU grupa, Drago Mlinarecand R.M. Točak Band at Legende YU Rocka ("Legends of YU Rock") concert in Dom Sportovaorganized by Radio Zagreb. Korni Grupa song "Jedna žena" appeared on the double live album " Legende YU Rocka". The same artists performed that same year in Belgrade's Sava Centar.
