(H) TOMISLAV GOLUBAN (usna harmonika)


Tomislav Goluban je svirač usne harmonike i skladatelj . Višestruki je dobitnik "Porina" i nagrade "Status". Nastupao je u 20-tak različitih zemalja Europe i u SAD-a. Njegov šesti studijski album "Blow Junkie" zauzeo je 49. mjesto na svjetskoj ljestvici blues albuma "Roots Music Chart".

Usnu harmoniku je počeo svirati inspiriran zvucima LP albuma starih blues majstora. Tijekom godina “izbrusio“ je glazbeni izričaj u unikatni spoj country-bluesa i hrvatske tradicionalne glazbe. Njegova autorska glazba kroz Zagorje teče kao pritok rijeke Mississippi nastojeći spojiti naizgled nespojivo – zagorske korjene i američki blues.

"Ambasador Zagorja" osvojio je 4. mjesto na Svjetskom prvenstvu u sviranju usne harmonike u Njemačkoj 2005., postao je jedini hrvatski indosant usnih harmonika Hohner, primio je nagradu Fender Mega Muzike za izniman doprinos glazbi u sviranju usne harmonike 2009. te za glazbenu suradnju sa Zdenkom Kovačiček 2012., bio je prvi hrvatski predstavnik na svjetskom natjecanje blues sastava u Memphisu, SAD (International Blues Challenge, 2009.), primio Zahvalnicu Grada Zaboka i Plaketu Krapinsko-zagorske županije, osmislio je i realizirao zabavno-edukativni program “Usna harmonika u blues glazbi“ koji prezentira učenicima osnovnih i srednjih škola diljem Hrvatske. Organizator je "Zagorje Blues Etno Festivala" koji se tijekom studenog održava na području Krapinsko-zagorske županije.

Boško Petrović, Zdenka Kovačiček, Tamara Obrovac, Ksenija Erker, Hana Hegedušić, Miroslav Evačić, Lela Kaplowitz, Adam Končić, Singrlice, Kvartet Gubec, Lidija Bajuk, Joe Filisko, Eric Noden, Mike Sponza, Raphael Wressnig i Nebojša Buhin samo su dio impresivnog popisa glazbenika s kojima je surađivao i koji su sudjelovali u snimanju Golubanove autorske glazbe. Na Hrvatskome radiju autorski osmišljava emisije posvećene blues glazbi.

TOMISLAV GOLUBAN, Croatian blues musician, composer and harmonica player is quite unique by his expression. He's been playing his harp since 1997, inspired by old school masters like Sonny Terry, Slim Harpo, Paul Butterfield, Gary Primich, Kim Wilson or Joe Filisko just to name a few whom he still admires today.

Performing solo/duo with a band, he played in the USA and in Europe in 20 countries. Here are just a few events he took part: 25th IBC, Memphis, (USA), Notodden Blues Festival (Norway), Amal's Blues Festival (Sweden) and Blues sur Seine (France).

Look back at his discography and his seven studio albums reveals delta, country & Chicago blues, zydeco, rock'n'roll and world music. He's been recording his music in a wide span from raw delta duo sound to the full instrumental arrangement with 20 musicians playing one song.

He won couple of annual Croatian most prestigious national music awards („Porin“) and took the 4th place at World Harmonica Festival in Germany, 2005. He is the founder of etno blues festival in his hometown region, he educates young people and hosts a radio show specialized in blues on Croatian national radio station.

Joe Filisko, Eric Noden, Mike Sponza or Raphael Wressnig are just a part of the list of musicians he cooperated with and who took part in recording his albums and his originally composed music, a music that's just like an affluent to Mississippi trying hard to combine almost impossible combination – traditional Croatian (Zagorje) roots and American blues.

With his 6th studio album titled "Blow Junkie" (2014) he debuted at # 49 on the Roots Music Chart for the Week of May 13, 2015.
