One of the Balkan's most beloved folk rock musicians and a national institution in Slovenia, Vlado Kreslin's 30-year career has spanned performances with Bob Dylan and R.E.M. in concerts around the world. But his greatest legacy is the unification of disparate and often warring factions within former Yugoslavia, by bringing together their regional music and combining it within his own impassioned compositions. Kreslin is a unifying artist, beloved and iconic not only among Slovenes but throughout the Balkans. Kreslin's is a poetry of political healing, binding the wounds suffered in the Balkans after the end of Socialism. He has been variously compared to other musician/poets, 20th century troubadours, including Dylan, Bruce Springsteen, and Woody Guthrie.
