Bojan Zulfikarpasic

Born in a music loving family in Belgrade in 1968, Bojan Zulfikarpasic starts playing the piano at the age of 5. “In my country, music is a very widespread activity, and since working days finish quite early, family and friends would gather at my parent’s house as early as 3 o’clock in the afternoon to socialize and play music until late at night. I used to go to sleep listening to these Yugoslavian folksongs. Then I discovered Bach, Ravel and Debussy through my teachers, The Beatles ” thanks to a friend ” and Brazilian music with my father. I played these tunes by ear, trying to find the right chords, which already amounts to a jazz attitude”. As a teenager, while continuing his lessons in music school, he starts playing in bands and becomes known musician on the Belgrade jazz and rock scene (resulting in 1989 in receiving the award for Best Young Jazz Musician of Yugoslavia).
