TOMISLAV GOLUBAN

(pronunciation: Toh-mee-sla:v Go-loo-ba:n)

Croatian blues musician, composer, harmonica player and a singer, is quite unique by his expression. With his passion, sense of humor and catchy appearance, he can really afford your audience an interesting and original show.

He's been playing his harp since 1997, inspired by old school masters like Sonny Terry, Slim Harpo, Paul Butterfield, Gary Primich, Kim Wilson or Joe Filisko just to name a few whom he still admires today.

Performing solo/duo with a band, he played in the USA and in Europe in 20 countries. Here are just a few events he took part: Notodden Blues Festival (Norway), Amal's Blues Festival (Sweden), Blues sur Seine (France) and IBC (USA).  So far (2017), he has released eight solo albums, two maxi-singles and one compilation album.

Look back at his discography and his eight studio albums reveals delta, country & Chicago blues, zydeco, rock'n'roll and world music. He's been recording his music in a wide span from raw delta duo sound to the full instrumental arrangement with 20 musicians playing one song. He won couple of annual Croatian national music awards, he is the founder of etno blues festival in his hometown region, he educates young people and hosts a radio show specialized in blues on Croatian national radio station.

Joe Filisko, Eric Noden, Mike Sponza or Raphael Wressnig are just a part of the list of musicians he cooperated with and who took part in recording his albums and his originally composed music, a music  that's just like an affluent to Mississippi trying  hard to combine almost impossible combination – traditional Croatian (Zagorje) roots and American blues.
