Drvo Truo (SRB)
DrvoTruo actually began as a ” one-night stand ” acoustic duo, which spontaneously grew into a trio and has since been more than 10 years. Thus, the three guys from Kikinda (Jovan Bajkin, Srdjan Stojanović and Aleksandar Lipovan) under this “reckless” name – DrvoTruo, which always requires interpretations and explanations, have gone through about 500 live performances together. They have performed on the streets of Berlin, Switzerland, Slovakia, Romania, ex-Yugoslavian countries and of course Serbia.
In August 2011, the first album entitled “Reproduction” was released, containing an overview of the specific cover concept. The album features 10 acoustic covers by foreign performers for whom they have made arrangements. At the request of the National Theater from Kikinda in 2012, they recorded music for the theatre-play Pajamas for Six by Marc Camoletti, directed by Olja Đorđević. The project consists acoustic coversrs of 4 hit charts from the 80’s.
In August 2019, the band’s first album was recorded, and produced by Ognjen Cvekić. The album features 7 genres of slightly different songs that are linked by a common thread – DrvoTruo. The music and lyrics are signed by DrvoTruo, while the lyrics of one track awere written by Igor Grandić.
