About Toma Zdravković

  • Tomislav "Toma" Zdravkovic (Serbian Cyrillic: ???????? "????" ??????????; 20 November 1938 – 30 September 1991) was a famous Serbian pop-folk singer-songwriter and recording artist. Zdravkovic was an outstanding figure on Serbian folk scene; a true bohemian and a poet, he lived up to his sad songs.
  • The songs, although having the form of Serbian folk music, had spirit of chansons.
  • He had a characteristic baritone vocal, not too powerful but warm, resembling the one of Charles Aznavour.
  • The violin underlined the melancholic atmosphere in most songs.
  • Most of the lyrics were written by Zdravkovic, devoted to unfortunate love, and love-suffering while drinking and singing in omnipresent kafanas.
  • He married four times, and settled only with his fourth wife Gordana in the late years. Some of Zdravkovic's most renowned songs are Prokleta nedelja ("Cursed Sunday"), Dotak'o sam dno života ("I Touched the Bottom of Life"), Ostala je samo uspomena ("Only a Memory Remained"), Pustite me da živim svoj život ("Let Me Live My Own Life"), Dva smo sveta razlicita ("We're Two Different Worlds") and testimonial Pesme moje ("My Songs").
