Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo

rock band to release an album, in 1980. The New Wave bands Šarlo Akrobata, Električni Orgazam and Idoli, which appeared on the influential compilation album ''Paket aranžman'' in 1980, were followed by a large number of New Wave acts. Around 1982, with the rising tensions in Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo, New Wave scene declined. During the 1980s, pop rock acts, such as Đorđe Balašević and Bajaga i Instruktori, dominated the mainstream scene, but various other rock genres also emerged, and the alternative rock scene, with the acts such as Ekatarina Velika, Disciplina Kičme, and Rambo Amadeus, started to develop and gain mainstream popularity. Mid 1980s At the beginning of 1983 Bijelo dugme recorded a children's music album ''A milicija trenira strogoću! (i druge pjesme za djecu)'' (''And Police Trains Strictness! (and Other Songs for Children)''). The lyrics for the album were written by Duško Trifunović. It was initially planned Seid Memić Vajta (Seid Memić) to sing the vocals, but eventually, vocals were recorded by the eleven year old Ratimir Boršić Rača (Ratimir Boršić), and the album was released under Ratimir Boršić Rača & Bijelo dugme moniker. In February 1983 the band released the album ''Uspavanka za Radmilu M.'' (''Lullaby for Radmila M.''). Bregović intended to release ''Uspavanka za Radmilu M.'' as Bijelo dugme's farewell album and to dismiss the band after the tour. The album was recorded in Skopje and featured Vlatko Stefanovski (guitar), Blagoje Morotov (double bass) and Arsen Ereš (saxophone) as guest musicians. The song "Kosovska" (''"Kosovan"'') featured Albanian language lyrics and, although featuring simple rock music-related lyrics, became provocative as it was recorded during delicate political situation in Kosovo (Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo). Songs "Ako možeš zaboravi" (''"Forget, if You Can"''), "U vrijeme otkazanih letova" (''"At the Time of Cancelled Flights"''), "Polubauk kruži poluevropom" and "Ovaj ples dame biraju" (''"Lady's Choice"'') featured different sound, illustrating various fazes in the band's career. The album title track is the only instrumental track Bijelo dugme ever recorded. Although ''Uspavanka za Radmilu M.'' did not bring numerous hits as the band's previous releases and is generally considered the least successful Bijelo dugme album, the tour was very successful, and audience's response made Bregović change his mind. After the tour the band went on a hiatus and Bebek recorded his second solo album ''Mene tjera neki vrag''. He officially left the band on April 23, 1984, deciding to dedicate himself to his solo career. Decline As the New Wave perished in the beginning of the 1980s, some of the bands split or took different musical directions. The period around 1982 is considered especially crucial concerning the decline of the New Wave in Yugoslavia. There were several other reasons why the Yugoslav New Wave started to fade beside the notable general decline of the New Wave around the world: the economical crisis in Yugoslavia in the first half of the 1980s (see: Economy of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) and the political instability, especially in the Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo in 1981 after Josip Broz Tito's death. Also, the musical genres such as post-punk, darkwave and gothic rock, as well as New Romantic and synth-pop already saw a great expansion around the world, including Yugoslavia too. '''Kosovafilmi''' was a film production, distribution and screening company in Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo, Yugoslavia (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia). Established on February 20, 1969. Its first general director was Abdurrahman Shala. The following directors were Azem Shkreli, in which period the best movies of Kosovafilm were produced, also Xhevat Qorraj and Ekrem Kryeziu. The actual director of Kosovafilm is Gani Mehmetaj. The Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo was established in 1974 with a high degree of autonomy within the Socialist Republic of Serbia. This autonomy was curtailed by constitutional amendments in 1989, resulting in mass protests by Kosovar Albanians, many of whom were arrested by the then-Yugoslav authorities. This resulted in a declaration of a state of emergency in February 1990 and the resignation of the Provincial Council of Ministers in May. In the 1980s, Albanian (Albanians) secessionist movements in the Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo, Socialist Republic of Serbia, led to the repression of the Albanian majority in Serbia's southern province. *** Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (1945–1963)) (1944–1963), Socialist Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (1963–1990), Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (Vojvodina) (1990–1992) *** Autonomous Region of Kosovo and Metohija (Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija (1946–1974)) (1945–1974), Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo (1974–1990), Autonomous Province of Kosovo (History of Kosovo) (1990–1992) ** People's Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina) (1945–1963), Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (1963–1990), Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (1990–1992)

Instruktori, included in the band's official discography), started releasing successful albums ''Sa druge strane jastuka'' (1985) ''Jahači magle'' (1986), and ''Prodavnica tajni'' (1988), all becoming mega-hits. Both Bajaga i Instruktori and Riblja Čorba entered the 1990s as some of the most popular Serbian rock acts, and their later releases maintained the gained popularity. "BAJAGA I INSTRUKTORI U SAVA CENTRU: Instruktori mejnstrima", Popboks.com However, in the 1990s, Riblja Čorba's popularity heavily declined in Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina during the Yugoslav wars, when Ðorđević became an active supporter of the Serbian troops in Republika Srpska and Republika Srpska Krajina, which he demonstrated by recording controversial songs "E moj druže zagrebački" (which was recorded as a response to Jura Stublić's song "E moj druže beogradski") and "Ljetovanje" with the band Mindušari from Knin. However, Ðorđević was also strongly opposed to Serbian regime and the president Slobodan Milošević and he demonstrated his attitude by writing a number of anti-regime songs released on Riblja Čorba albums ''Zbogom, Srbijo'' (1993), ''Ostalo je ćutanje'' (1996) and ''Nojeva barka'' (1999) and on his solo album ''Njihovi dani'' (1996). The origins of the unit can be traced back to April 1991, on the eve of Croatian War of Independence, when a group of armed men, the predessesors to the JSO; led by Franko Simatović and Dragan Vasiljković set off from Belgrade to Knin. Several days earlier, on March 16, Milošević promised "preparations of appropriate units capable of defending interests of Serbia and Serb people outside Serbia" in a closed session with Serbian municipal presidents.

Upon graduation, Marjanović came back to Knin since he found employment there as the supervisor in Tvik factory. From there, he advanced to the position of financial director, and eventually moving on to metallurgical factory in Zenica.

Background The opening phase of the Croatian War of Independence, from July 1991 to the imposition of an uneasy UN-brokered ceasefire in early January 1992, resulted in an uneasy standstill between the fledgling Croatian state, that had gained support from the international community, but at the severe cost of losing almost a third of its territory to ethnic Serb (Serbs of Croatia) rebels of the Republic of Serbian Krajina headquartered in Knin, openly backed by the Serbian-controlled Yugoslav People's Army (JNA), that had pressed home their near-total superiority in artillery, armour and air power over the newly formed Croatian army. Domagoj was a powerful Croatian nobelman, with lands around Knin. Following the death of Trpimir I (Trpimir I of Croatia) in 864, he usurped (usurpation) the throne of Zdeslav (Zdeslav of Croatia) in a civil war. Domagoj became the Duke of Dalmatian Croatia, and Trpimir's sons, Petar, Zdeslav (Zdeslav of Croatia) and Muncimir (Muncimir of Croatia), were forced into exile. During Domagoj's reign piracy was a common practice, which caused bad relations with the Venice (Republic of Venice). In 865 Domagoj was forced to make an unfavourable peace with the Venetian Republic (Republic of Venice), giving hostages to Venice as a guarantee for safe passage of Venetian ships in the Adriatic Sea.
