List of programs


The Museum of Yugoslavia invites you to join us at the closing of this season’s program of the Summer in the Museum at a spectacular party in the Museum’s Sculpture Park, where four bands from Zagreb will present themselves first: nemanja, Antidepresiv, Sfumato and Prazna Lepinja, and then, the members of all these bands will unite on stage in the JeboTon Ensamble. The program will take place on September 10 at 4 p.m. Admission is free.

For five years, the Summer in the Museum program has been successfully realised with the idea of ​​affirming the Museum of Yugoslavia as a place for socializing and entertainment at various events. Since the program was launched, dozens of concerts by bands and performances by other artists have been held, in which the Museum’s curators recognized the echoes of Yugoslav heritage. Additionally, by inheriting the tradition of Yugoslav youth culture, the Museum strives to support young bands, but also to present the regional scene to the audience in Belgrade through its programs.

JeboTonEnsamble is a street band that has been entertaining the people of Zagreb for years with its guerrilla performances. The band was created as a by-product of the music collective JeboTon. Members of the bands Spremiste, Hren, Prazna Lepinja, Lobotomija, Antidepresiv and Porto Morto started working together to adapt their songs to acoustic versions, so that they could spread this music through street performances. After hundreds of festivals, street and club performances throughout the region, the JeboTon Ensemble still rocks, with even greater intensity than ever before! Over the years, the ensemble has outlived many of the original “JeboTon bands”, but new bands have also been formed, and in the meantime JeboTon has become a recognized and award-winning label with dozens of releases.

Antidepresiv is a three-member band from Zagreb that has been active in various line-ups since 2007 and is best known as the source of a substantial part of the JeboTon Ensemble’s production. In the new version, it performs old and new hits of melodic punk with socially aware and emotionally charged lyrics.

Prazna Lepinja is a band that entered the Zagreb scene in 2008. After the initial breakthrough at the demo scene, and then performing within the JeboTon collective, they have released one studio album “DANASUTRA”.Although they haven’t been performing for a while, they came back in 2021 and sold out their concerts three days in a row. Lyrically advanced and with a musical rhythm of a combination of rock, punk, psychedelia, funk and reggae, this band presents a real musical treat.

Sfumato is a schizo-funk band from Zagreb. They have two critically acclaimed albums so far, “Walhali” which was on several lists of the best albums of 2018 and the newly released “Knauf”. Their music ranges from hard funk grooves to light ambient stuff.

nemanja is a project of Luka Šipetić, the author of two albums where he united various exotic sounds. 2019’s “Tarot Funk” is a tribute to the sound of Tai funk, Afro funk, Anatolian rock of the 70’s and Cambodian rock of the 60’s, heavily influenced by tarot.

“Cosmic Disco”, a 2020 album, is a combination of the music of 70’s, chica cumbia, Yu funk, afrobeat and Lebanese disco, and represents a musical response to the Tibetan Book of the Dead. Both albums have been successful on the world music scene.
