Biography





















Ekatarina Velika (EKV)
was a Serbian and Yugoslav new wave band that existed from 1982 to 1994. Formed
by guitarist and vocalist, Milan Mladenović, after the dissolution of his
former band, Šarlo Akrobata, the band’s core lineup consisted of Margita Stefanović
on keyboards and Bojan Pečar on bass. They released their first album, Katarina II, (named after a love
interest of Mihailović's) in 1984. After numerous line-up changes and constant
touring the band released their self-titled second album in 1985, which saw the
band playing outside of their native Yugoslavia for the first time. Further
albums introduced a more alternative rock sound, S' vetrom uz lice (1986), and Ljubav
(1987), which found the band more success internationally and paved the way for
a mainstream following in the early 90s. After releasing, Samo par godina za nas, in 1989, the band released two final
albums, Dum Dum (1991) and Neko nas posmatra (1993), but were
forced to shelve further activities after Mladenović was diagnosed with pancreatic
cancer. Their final show was at the Pjesma
Mediterana
festival on August 24, 1994, before Mladenović died later that
year on November 5, in Belgrade. Ekatarina Velika remain one of the most influential
acts to hail from the former Yugoslavia.
