Magnifico

(Website)

His latest release “Magnification” marks the first worldwide release for this master of visual and lyrical irony. But the inveterate showman and former folk dancer’s wry exploration of sex and post-socialist society carries echoes of the dissolution of his erstwhile homeland, Yugoslavia. He fled the chaos of war and moral collapse by retreating into his own creativity. His songs raise eyebrows and spark debate, dominating charts in the former Yugoslavia and Italy. Now Magnifico is being unleashed on the world at large with Magnification, in a blast of Balkan- and Roma-scented funk, r&b, and soul… and even a flirtation with cowboys and Mexican-style horns. Tracks hail from Magnifico’s latest limited edition Slovenian release, along with several freshly minted songs from the songwriter’s ever fertile mind.

His latest release “Magnification” marks the first worldwide release for this master of visual and lyrical irony. But the inveterate showman and former folk dancer’s wry exploration of sex and post-socialist society carries echoes of the dissolution of his erstwhile homeland, Yugoslavia. He fled the chaos of war and moral collapse by retreating into his own creativity. Magnifico sought asylum in music, a love he discovered decades ago as a young man, when his father bought him his first guitar. His songs, while raising the roof, raise eyebrows and spark debate about everything from xenophobia to homophobia, dominating charts in the former Yugoslavia and Italy. He has crafted songs that unabashedly chant “Magnifico is queer” and parody Slovenes’ insults for Southern Slavs, tracks meant to shock, critique, and amuse. Now Magnifico is being unleashed on the world at large with Magnification, in a blast of Balkan- and Roma-scented funk, r&b, and soul… and even a flirtation with cowboys and Mexican-style horns. Tracks hail from Magnifico’s latest limited edition Slovenian release, along with several freshly minted songs from the songwriter’s ever fertile mind.
