The concert of the band Gustafi will be held on 13 August in the garden of the Ilion Castle in Sremski Karlovci, within The Danube Sea programme arch.

The band Gustafi was formed in 1980 in the small town of Vodnjan in Istria from an amateur stage group partial to performances, and it had its first concert under the name Gustaph y njegovi dobri duhovi. Band members Edi Maružin and Čedomir Mošnja have been playing together for 40 years, they have recorded eleven albums and had over 2500 performances together. Vlado Maružin left the band after 32 years in 2012 and devoted himself to teaching, and the two remaining original members Livio Morosin and Igor Arih also left the band, Igor remaining an external collaborator, and many musicians have paraded through the group since then. Initially, they played experimental punk rock, which was later replaced by the influences of Istrian ethno music, as well as other world ethno scenes, which created the distinctive sound of Gustafi they are still known for. With a mixture of everything they heard and listened to (from blues, country, Tex-Mex, Cajun, Celtic music, Balkan traditional music, Russian-Ukrainian folk songs all the way to the orthodox Istrian canto) they created an infectious sublimate that conquers people wherever they go, from Portugal, Spain, Switzerland, to Israel and Brazil. The album ‘FF’ was released in 2006, for which they also received the Porin award for best rock album. In 2009, they released a new studio album ‘Chupacabra’, on which they made a bigger turn towards the roots, with a lot of experimental sounds, found sound, computers, etc. In 2012/13, they released the album ‘Kanibalkanska’ which won the accolades of critics and is already considered one of their best albums. In 2015, their eleventh album ‘Maneštra’ saw the light of day, and a new live CD and DVD are in the works.

The current line-up consists of Edi Maružin, author of lyrics and music, singer and guitarist, Čedomir Mošnja – drums, Ang Maružin – bass, Gianluca Antonini – bass, trombone, Jimi Grgić – guitar, Alen Peruško – accordion, Bernarda Ravnić – vocals, percussion, Boris Mohorić – trumpet and vocals, Luka Horvat – trumpet, Antun Ferenčić – trombone, Aldo Foško – clarinet, keyboards, and Mirjan Derossi – trumpet.

The concert will be held as part of the Danube Culture Festival.

This one-day music festival aims to show the local audience part of the spectrum of musical diversity offered by bands and musicians from Europe and the region, especially those that are united by the Danube, and nature in general, which is manifested in their colourful music and the cheerfulness they spread at their performances.

This time, the emphasis is on the original music that, with its mix of genres, fun character, and virtuoso performances, breaks all the boundaries and manages to make these seemingly local heroes into world-renowned artists.
