At seventeen, he played double bass in the youth jazz big band in his home town. Two years later, he moved to Belgrade and gained significant playing experience in both studios and live performances with prominent pop and rock artists from Serbia. He also performed throughout Europe with ethno-music groups. This helped him become especially familiar with the ethno music of the Balkans and World music. In 2010, he returned to Valjevo and formed his first acoustic jazz trio and quartet. Until now, he has released five albums of his original compositions: “Portrait in Bass” (2014), “Story on Bass” (2015) that received high praises in the United States of America, most prominently, in the reviews of a music journalist and a writer Walter Kolosky and the music critics of a leading world fusion music brand and record label “Abstractlogix” who graded this album 4.5 out of 5 stars.
