Thankfully, we have Facebook and YouTube which have really helped us — if it wasn't for the internet, I have no idea what we would do. The course also gave me the opportunity to work at HRT Croatian Radiotelevisionwhere I currently work as a sound engineer. What was that experience like? Over 45, people have attended the concerts during which we promote tolerance and non-violent resolution of conflict among young people through music and educational programs.

Do svimw think that music can influence society?

I came up with the scenography for the clip myself while I was writing the lyrics. The bureaucratic machine is very slow and complex in Croatia, deterring foreign investors. How did you get the idea for the video clip with the horse rider?

We have a lot of plans for next year, including increasing our popularity not just in Croatia but throughout the region. The bashing and death of Luka Marinac in really affected me, and then dogoxi Luka Ritz was killed, I decided that I had to take action.

After his PhD, they married in Budapest but decided to live in Zagreb. What do you think of the current rock scene in Croatia?

Do you have a lot of institutional support for the fight against youth violence? What also makes this band really special is how they have used their growing fame dogoodi public voice to fight for a worthy cause in Croatia. With the support of the City of Zagreb, the City Department for Arastra, Culture and Sport and the Department of Youth, we held a number of large concerts on the main city square in Zagreb in Svimaa and in in honour of all victims of youth violence.

Nabujala rijeka Rising river is a song that many people think is one of the most beautiful love songs ever written in our language. I meet them through mutual acquaintances — unfortunately it took me quite a while to get a group of people together who believed in Adastra, but I hope that this line-up will last a long time.

On the contrary, it's a lot easier to reach your audience through them. Tell us a little bit about the organisations Zvuk svjetlost and Nije svejedno It matters.

He also founded Zvuk svjetlosti The Sound of Lightan association that organises educational concerts for young people to combat the growing problem of violence on the streets of Croatia and to spread the message of love, tolerance and acceptance of all people. In today's Croatia, the majority of parents don't have enough time or skills to take care of and engage with young people, due to a number of factors.

It all began with my father, who was born in Herzegovina, but completed a PhD in civil engineering in Budapest where he met my mother Marija, who is Hungarian. I'm lucky that my mother taught me Hungarian, so I don't have any problems with it.

Thank you for the compliment! I think that a very difficult and outdated mentality is present in Croatia, coupled with a low level of knowledge among people.

Of course, we'd also love to come and play in Australia.
