The music legacy of Dino Dvornik (20 August 1964 – 7 September 2008), as well as his permanently intertwined private and showbusiness life witness an enormous talent and feature eruptive music based on furious rhythm and passion regardless of the magnitude of inspiration.

While he was the cult “Dalmatian singer” in the ‘70s and the ‘80s with the anthemic and anthological songs such as Galeb, Malinkolija, Oprosti mi pape, Skalinada, Karoca, Ništa nova, Stina and other, reaching far outside the regional borders, in the ‘90s and the new millennium he became the biggest and the shiniest star of (not only) Croatian scene.
Unfortunately, partly due to his own nonchalance and partly as a toll to the “provincial mindset”, Toma’s musical opus is comparably weaker than the value of the songs and the extraordinary concert performances.
His songs mostly belong to “Dalmatian chansons” with distinctive dedication to his region, but they mostly refer to everyday situations and “little people” from the margins, with whom he – as a bohemian and anarchist – got along the best.
