The band  

 

Savski Valovi are a tambura band founded in 1999 in Zaprešić. Five tambura enthusiasts form the band today:

Nikola Pušić - second brač
Hrvoje Ban - bugarija and lead singer
Danijel Rožanković - bisernica
Tomislav Glogović - first brač
Josip Šturlić - bass

There have been numerous concerts throughout Croatia in their career (from Vinkovci in the east, where they represented the Hrvatsko Zagorje region in the opening ceremony of "Vinkovačke jeseni", to the city of Dubrovnik in the south - the concert "Zagorje Dubrovniku"), but they have also performed abroad - mostly in countries where Burgenland Croats live and other countries (Slovakia, Hungary, Austria, Czech Republic, Slovenia). During the year 2008 they've appeared at festivals in Požega ("Zlatne žice Slavonije") and Pitomača ("Pjesme Podravine i podravlja") and they've won the first prize in the pop/tambura music category of the "Zlatna Ruža '09" festival. They have also won the Zlatna tamburica, first prize of the "Tamburaška noć 2005" tambura festival that took place in Mače and they've performed at the Krijesnica festival in Krapina.
They don't always perform alone, but they also accompany many singers and vocal groups. Let's name a few: Kvartet Gubec, Adam Končić, Rajko Suhodolčan, ŽVG Kajda, Siniša Miklaužić, Sabina Mikša, Filip Mikša, Branko Greblički Ventek, Ivica Pepelko and many others.
It should be pointed out that they perform regularly at the "Pjesma i tambura" festival that is held in Krapina and the finalists perform again at the Vatroslav Lisinski concert hall in Zagreb. They have also played at the "Pisme i popevke" grand concert in Zaprešić where they performed alongside Kvartet Gubec and Pivači KUD-a Cambi from Kaštel Kambelovac. At the live recording of the HRT TV show "Lijepom našom" in Zaprešić they accompanied many famous singers: Ivan Mikulić, Drago Mlinarec, Tihomir Kožina, Danijela Pintarić, Antonija Šola, Vlatka Burić and others.
Their recently published album "Slike mog života" (Croatia Records) represents their recording work and is a crown of their career up to this moment.
