To the uninitiated, Dubioza Kolektiv are a band from Bosnia
known for their fresh take on hip-hop, reggae, dub, rock and
Bosnian folklore. However, outside “The West”, the group has already established itself as among the best and most popular
live outfits in Eastern Europe, and notorious leaders in the fight for social change. They are also nominees for IMPALA’s “Best
Independent Album of 2011.” Their musical skills forged in basement shelters during the siege of Sarajevo, these guys know
more than anyone how to use music as a weapon against the forces of negativity.
DK is well known in Bosnia for practicing what they preach, lending support to Bosnia’s first grass-roots civil society group
“Dosta” by organizing a huge protest concert before 2006 general elections. Their album release party for their fourth album
“Firma Ilegal” took place in front of the Bosnian Parliament, in a powerful statement against government corruption, and
garnered massive coverage in the national press. Finally, in 2010 the band spearheaded a national voting drive with concerts
in all of the major Bosnian cities, aimed to increase the turnout of younger population in 2010 elections. Time Magazine and
the BBC have both recognized the group as a legitimate voice of Bosnia.
“Wild Wild East”, is the fifth and latest release in their 8 years of existence. Tireless activists, their subjects revolve around
subjects of peace and tolerance alongside an extreme criticism of nationalism and cultural stereotypes. The music is relentless
and habit forming, tailor made for massive sound systems.
If you’re looking for macho, money-and-ego driven posturing, you won’t find it here; no MTV “rude boy” gangstas, no
strippers or bling, no corporate endorsements from the international fashion industry. Rather, they take on traditional
musical forms with their unique perspective, shaped by a war that changed their lives forever, and delivered with a level of
positivity that hits you like a blast of fresh air. If you are open to the experience, it could change your life too.
