Obrad Djurin

Another long forgotten singer from the early days is Obrad Djurin. He recorded Serbian, Croatian, and Slovenian folksongs in the 1910's and 20's on both Victor and Columbia labels. He had a wonderful, operatic, tenor voice, which soared above the sometimes mediocre, nondescript orchestras that accompanied him on many of his records. His passionate rendition of Da Sam Leptir is one of my all time favorites.
