I was born 1 september 1973 in town Mitrovica in ex Yugoslavia, nowadays Kosovo. When I went to my first trompet lesson the next door was wide open and I saw the guitar teacher Petar Rakiç playing an unbeliveably beautifull Lobos piece. It was year 1983, I was 10, I was overwhelmed, that moment I must of decided to become a guitar player which I realized later on.
In 1986 when I was 3rd grade of music school I competed with 4th grade and won the title of Best Guitarist of Serbia. In 1989 recorded few songs with my band "Horoskop", one of them became a hit on local radio station.
In 1992 I moved to Turkey as a student of Journalizm and Mass Communication in Istanbul University. Same year I started playing rock and blues in Engin Yorukoglu's club "Jazz Stop" 7 days a week. Here, my talent for sound and recording was discovered so in 1996 I started as professional sound engineer and studio musician in Fuat Guner's FT Studio.
In 1997 I also started playing concerts with famous Turkish singers like Sibel Tüzün, Ben Deniz, Deniz Arcak etc.. Then it went:
1999-2000 Teoman (bass player)
2002-2010 Kıraç (bass player)
2010-still Feridun Düzağaç (guitar player)
