‘Tajči – for Yugoslavia’ – It’s been 30 years since the iconic performance of Hajde da Ludujemo (eng. Let’s Go Crazy) by Tajči, who performed her Eurovision entry on the home soil in Zagreb, Croatia.
As a pop star in the former Yugoslavia in the late 1980s and early 1990s, Tajči won the national selection Jugovizija and represented Yugoslavia at the Eurovision Song Contest 1990. Her Yugoslav music career was cut short by the breakup of Yugoslavia and the subsequent war, as she moved to the United States by the very young age.
We’re extremely happy that we got the opportunity to have an exclusive chat with Tajči about her new life in the United States, about her memories from the Eurovision, and also about one of the biggest struggles the human being can go through.
Also, take a look at the 2020 version of an ultimate Eurovision classic ‘Hajde da Ludujemo’, where Alka Vujica (composer of Yugoslavian 1990 entry) and Tijana Dapčević (Macedonia 2014) are taking part as well!
Tajči achieved 7th place at the 1990 Eurovision Song Contest, but the song itself still remains as a huge hit even nowadays, especially in the countries of the former Yugoslavia.
