Nemanja Kojić (December 17, 1975 in Belgrade, Serbia), better known by his stage name Hornsman Coyote (or just Coyote), is a Serbian Reggae/Dub musician.[1][2]

Personal life[edit]

Coyote resides in Belgrade. He is the son of Borivoje Kojić, a famous Serbian artist.

Music[edit]

He has been on the local scene for about 17 years, playing with reggae, hip hop and hardcore bands like Del Arno Band, Sunshine, Dead Ideas, Shappa, etc.

In 1994 he formed his own band, Eyesburn. It took a few of years for EB to become a hardcore/reggae legend in the Balkans, after recording seven albums and having a European tour in 2004, supporting and performing a song, "Moses," with the legendary Max Cavalera and his band, Soulfly. Eyesburn have a lot of good work planned for the future. One of the things yet to come is a super reggae jazz instrumental project named Burnin' Soundz gathered by the Eyesburn crew and some of the best Belgrade based musicians.

Coyote himself worked outside Serbia on Dark Ages, another Soulfly record, where he plays the song "Innerspirit" as guest. At the same time he worked with top Serbian hip hop producer Wikluh Sky and French MC King Kyll, making one album under the name Shappa. In Serbia, as a supporting act, he and his bandmates shared stages with artists like Burning Spear, Dub Syndicate, Lee Scratch Perry, Asian Dub Foundation, etc. Coyote also appeared as a session musician and as a guest playing the trombone, guitars or singing for many Belgrade and ex-YU bands, such as Riblja Čorba, Discord, Skarps, Irie FM, Dub Rebellion, Who See?, Kanda, Kodža i Nebojša, Darkwood Dub, Block Out, E-Play, Raspect, etc.

His solo album "What next?!," garnered much success. He recorded fifteen songs, which he performed on Exit Festival (Novi Sad, Serbia) and many other festivals and solo concerts .

In 2010, he released his second solo album, entitled "Self Defend You" (2010), under the Polish label Karrot Kommando.
