During first half of 1980-ies a wave of new music and art happened in former Yugoslavia. Not being a member of Warsaw Pact, communist Yugoslavia had more liberal system than the rest of East European countries. But specially after Josip Broz Tito died in 1980, his uncharismatic successors were unable to maintain his firm grip on society. People started discovering new freedoms.

Unfortunately, this creative period ended with fall of Yugoslavia and civil wars in 90-ies.

Here is a small collection of videos from that period: Link>
