VladimirCetkar has been hailed by international critics as one of the most exciting names in his genre, a fresh music force which is unique in today’s music industry due to Cetkar single-handedly producing, composing, orchestrating, arranging, and performing his original music. His evident musical influences may transport you back in time to the musical era when bands like Chic and Earth, Wind & Fire ruled the musical cosmos, but Vladimir’s new sound, original music expression, and contemporary production return you to the present, and portend a strong future for this genre of music.
