The album will have 12 or 13 songs, and several duets, with Hanka Paldum, Crvena Jabuka, Teška Industrija, Neda Ukraden, Paolo Jusić and the album will be in the well known Monteno style – classic romantic chansons.
After this album he’ll perform at several festivals in Montenegro and Croatia and on 22 June he’ll have a concert in Bihać.
Monteno was born in Sarajevo to an Italian father and a Bosniak mother. He recorded his first song “Lidija” in 1967 and has enjoyed a prosperous career in the former Yugoslavia. He is perhaps best known for “Sarajevo ljubavi moja”, a tribute to his home town.
Many of his songs have also been performed by others. For instance, “Bacila je sve niz rijeku” was a hit not only for him, but for Toše Proeski, Crvena Jabuka and Indexi. Similarly, others had success performing “Nekako s proljeća” and “Nije htjela”.
