Formed in Bosnia and Herzegovina in 2003, Dubioza Kolektiv blend local Balkan flavours with musical influences from all over the world, with elements of ska, punk, reggae, electronica, hip-hop forming their unique sound.
Dubioza Kolektiv were established at a time when in the region there was no music industry, few concerts and no space for cultural or political expression among the new crop of plugged in youth. In fact, the entire region was reeling from deep moral and economic stagnation. It was from this environment that Dubioza Kolektiv was born, and not quietly, but kicking and screaming, presenting no-go topics front and centre, and demanding to be heard. In doing so, they created a phenomenon. And it has continued in this vein ever since.
Fast forward to 2016, we find band continues stronger than ever, already established itself as among the best and most popular live outfits in Eastern Europe, hallmarked by their most recent musical release “Happy Machine”, perhaps their most provocative album to date.
