One of the most acclaimed rock authors in the region, Darko Rundek, the frontman of the incredibly influential Yugoslavian band Haustor, is returning to Šiška at the 20th anniversary of his ground-breaking solo debut Apokalipso. On the Limited Edition Tour, he’s accompanied by seven handpicked musicians, with the album unfolding on stage in a unique audio-visual event titled Apocalypso Now, showcasing all of the intimacy, beauty and opulence of Rundek’s work.
Popular Zagreb musician Darko Rundek began his career as a member of Yugoslavian new wave band Haustor, still regarded as one of the most important groups in the region. After its dissolution, Rundek released his solo debut Apokalipso in 1997, ironically and poetically discussing the post-socialist era. The release was regarded as the Croatian music event of the year, receiving five “Croatian Grammys”, Porins. Rundek’s later solo releases cemented his position as one of the most important Balkan artists, most recently in 2015, when his Cargo Trio released another Porin-winning album, Mostovi, the best Croatian record of the decade according to critics.
This year, the 20th anniversary of Apokalipso is commemorated with a special double issue featuring unreleased Haustor material, as well as with a rounded audio-visual project onstage, Apocalypso Now. Accompanied by seven excellent musicians, including members of TBF, Chui and Cargo Trio, Rundek enhances his performance with original projections and a lightshow. Kino Šiška will be treated to one of an exclusive handful of regional concerts in October, so don’t miss out on the chance to experience why Rundek’s music has left its mark on so many generations, from teens to those with over half a century to their name.
