Today the band is rejuvenated – the average age of its members is just over 30. Most have studied at various jazz academies abroad and each of them masters their instrument with virtuoso skill.

Rudi Bučar

Artist

Singer-songwriter and folk-rock musician Rudi Bučar is dedicated to nurturing Istria’s rich musical heritage. He embarked on his music career as member of Spirits. Inspired by Luciano Kleva, Rudi developed an interest in Istrian musical tradition and started collecting old Istrian folk songs. This material is featured on his solo albums “Kapot” (2004) and “Kambiament” (2007). He was backing vocalist for Slovenian contestant Alenka Gotar at the 2007 Eurovision Song Contest in Helsinki. The following year, he took part in the Sounds of Slovenia project (Sozvočja Slovenije). In 2009, Rudi formed his own rock band, Rudi & The Cool Vibes. That same year marked the first in a string of Rudi’s successes at Slovenian music festivals. In a duet with Alya, Rudi appeared at EMA – the national selection for the Eurovision Song Contest – with the song “Zadnji dan.” His composition “Samo ti” performed by Anika Horvat was the winning song of the Slovenian Song Festival. Two years later he appeared at the Slovenian Song Festival with a self-penned song, “Naj traja,” which received the Grand Jury Prize for Best Overall Composition. In 2011, Rudi started a music project – Istrabend – with Janez Dovč and Goran Krmac. In 2012, the band took part in the revived Melodies of the Sea and Sun Festival with the song “Slon” and released an album, “Rudi in Istrabend”. That same year Rudi again played at the Slovenian Song Festival, performing his song “Še malo”. In 2013, Rudi wrote the music for “The Servant of Two Masters,” a theatre performance directed by Kokan Mladenović and co-produced by Koper Theatre. In 2014, he took part in all three major Slovenian music festivals and carried the day at two of them: he performed with Elevators (“Tja”) at EMA, took the prize at the Melodies of the Sea and Sun Festival with Frčafele (“Sen znala jes”) and his song “Ti” was selected as Best Overall Composition – and Rudi presented with Best Performance Award – at the Slovenian Song Festival. The album “Kantajmo” by vocal quartet 7 plus, to which Rudi contributed as songwriter and arranger, came out in May 2014.

Rush to Relax

Artist

Rush to Relax is a solo project that developed after a bunch of failed bands. Damjan Manevski music, deeply rooted in a DIY mindset and under heavy influence of the global rock’n’roll heritage, brings the warmth and intimacy of home-recorded music. The project’s debut cassette was released in early September 2019 by Ljubljana’s very own Look Back And Laugh label and was followed by two regional mini-tours. His stripped-down and energetic performances that include only an electric guitar, vocals and some pre-recorded material, are a beautiful example of DIY creativity. There’s no point if you only rush to relax.
