Milomir Miljanić (Serbian Cyrillic: Миломир Миљанић; born 14 June 1963), nicknamed Miljan (Миљан), is a Montenegrin folk singer. Initially a guslar (gusle player, bard), he was the 5-time national champion before turning to pop-music in 2005. He is known for his traditional folk songs, which are mainly on patriotic and love themes. His hits include Gledaj, Orle and Izbeglica.

Musical career[edit]

Miljan began performing Serbian epic poetry on gusle as a young child.[1] At 16 years of age, he released his first album.[1] At 17, he won the Junior Championship in gusle, while as a senior, he won a total of five times.[2]

In 1990 he released his gusle cassette "The Wings of Kosovo", which sold a record-breaking 300 copies a day.[3]

His epic songs are mainly on the fall of Yugoslavia.[1]

Singing[edit]

In 2005 he left the epic poetry scene and entered the folk music scene with the release of his album Postadosmo dva naroda.[2] He is known for his traditional folk songs, which are mainly on patriotic and love themes.[2]

As of 2012, he has released more than 30 albums.[1]
