Interview Milan Stanković - Ovo Je Balkan (Serbia)

Posted 3 May, 2010, 21:49

Powered by http://www.eurovision.tv We had a nice chat with Milan from Serbia. Milan Stanković shot to fame through a Pop Idol-like contest in Serbia. The 22-year-old star won almost every round of the contest back in 2007. Since that year he's become very successful, known for his eccentric dressing style and distinctive looks. His debut album, Solo, sold quickly 50,000 copies and brought him a lot of fans. He leaves no one indifferent - some love him, others challenge his fame, with the media and the fans following closely his every step. His song was written by the renowned composer Goran Bregović. He's been called the founding father of the Yugoslav rock scene. Besides being very successful in music, he's also a famous film director, having received many prestigious awards. He's also composed music for theatre and has even written an opera, called Karmen with a Happy Ending. Until now it has been performed more than 150 times in theatres all over the world.
