Zorica Brunclik (Serbian Cyrillic: Зорица Брунцлик; born 29 June 1955) is a Serbian singer of folk music; both traditional and newly composed. Arguably one of the most famous Ex-Yugoslavian artists, Zorica Brunclik is known for her singing voice, fashion style and bright pink hair.

Biography[edit]

She was born 29 June 1955 in Belgrade, Federal People's Republic of Yugoslavia.[1][2] Her father was of Greek and Slovak descent, while her mother was from Šumadija.[3] She began performing in pubs and restaurants. It was there that she was discovered by Bora Spužić Kvaka, with whose daughter she went to school. She later completed a course in Aranžerskoj school at the National University "Bozidar Adžija", and then the Faculty of Economics and studied law.

She was married four times. Her best most known husbands are the accordionists Ljuba Kešelj and Miroljub Aranđelović Kemiš with whom she has been married since 1985. She has four children (three daughters and a son), and became a grandmother in 2013.

Brunclik was part of the leadership of the Yugoslav Left party and was a personal friend of both Slobodan Milošević and his wife Mira Marković. Because of this, after the overthrow of Slobodan Milošević in 2000, she experienced media isolation and blockade, as well as a variety of other inconveniences incited by supporters of the new regime.

Career[edit]

Zorica was introduced to fame by Bora Spužić Kvaka, a well known folk singer in the former Yugoslavia . After 5 years of singing in pubs and restaurants, performing at the Hotel "Danube" in Pozarevac she meets the then unknown singer and composer Novica Urosevic with whom she builds a musical career . He had performed with the orchestra of Tihomir Paunovića Tike who was at that time looking for new singers so this was Zorica's opportunity to record a song for Radio Television Belgrade. The first song was recorded for PGP Radio Television Belgrade 20 January 1975 and it was a single with the title track, " Ne daj da nas rastave" (Don't let them break us apart).[4] This song was a big success and the single was issued with a circulation of 300 000 copies. After that success Zorica's songs were often the most listened to on radio stations. She has worked with the orchestra of Branimir Djokic, she later continued collaboration with accordionist Ljuba Kešelj who was her former husband, and in 1985 she marries accordion player and arranger Miroljub Aranđelović Kemiš, after which she achieved even greater success. She has recorded for PGP RTB (later PGP RTS) in Belgrade, and Diskoton in Sarajevo, and Diskos in Aleksandrovac. She achieved artistic collaborations with many of her colleagues by recording duets or being a guest at their concerts . After 5 October revolution she took a break from singing for two years, and then went on to record for the production companys Gold, Grand and VIP . From her early career an interesting fact is that in the restaurants and hotels, among others, she has performed with the Orchestra of the Karic Brothers браће Карић.
