Orhan Maslo Oha
Dubioza kolektiv, also known as Dubioza, is a Bosnian band currently consisting of seven members. The band's music incorporates various styles, including reggae, dub, ska punk, and rock, and makes use of political and dissenting lyrics.
Dubioza kolektiv was founded in 2003 by former members of Gluho doba Against Def Age (Alan Hajduk, Adisa Zvekić, Almir Hasanbegović, Adis Zvekić) and former members of Ornamenti (Brano Jakubović and Vedran Mujagić).
The group was later joined by guitarist Armin Bušatlić, drummer Senad Šuta, percussionist Orhan Maslo Oha, sound engineer Dragan Jakubović, saxophonist Mario Ševarac and, in 2015, by guitarist Jernej Šavel.
In 2004, the record label Gramofon released Dubioza's first album, the eponymous "Dubioza kolektiv". In December of the same year, Dubioza kolektiv's second CD was released: the EP, "Open Wide", which contained tracks featuring dub poet Benjamin Zephaniah and Mush Khan from the Pakistani–UK band Fun-da-mental. In June 2006, Dubioza kolektiv released a new album, Dubnamite, which featured guest artists De-fence and Niköll (Nicolas Cante).
Wild Wild East
Dubioza kolektiv's 2011 album, Wild Wild East, consists mostly of songs in English. It garnered some international attention; critics generally given it good reviews and noted the eclectic music style. The album won the Best Adria Act in the MTV European Awards 2011.
Happy Machine (EP)
Happy Machine, Dubioza kolektiv’s second EP, consists of three tracks: two in English and one in Spanish. "No Escape (from Balkan)" talks about a gastarbeiter (migrant worker who had entered West Germany) who left his homeland in search for a better life. "Free.mp3 (The Pirate Bay Song)", was dedicated to founders of The Pirate Bay, Gottfrid Svartholm and Peter Sunde, who had been incarcerated for creating the site. The song questions copyright in the digital age, privacy on the Internet, and freedom of information. The song "Hay Libertad" ("There is Liberty") features Spanish band La Pegatina and is sung entirely in Spanish.
The album artwork was designed by Vedran Mujagić, and the music video for "No Escape (from Balkan)" was directed by Salem Kapić Kantardžić.
