WISH UPON A STAR
After winning multiple Grammies and being honored by many halls of fame (such as Rock & Roll Hall of Fame), a great musical legend Roy Orbison will finally be honored with his own star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. 22 years after his death, Orbison will receive a star at the unveiling ceremony on January 29, to be attended by his wife Barbara and their sons Roy Jr. and Alex. Orbison was one of the pioneers of Rock and Roll which he influenced in countless ways during his career spanning four decades, often departing from the norms of the genre and thus creating a new expression and sound.
About The Hollywood Walk of Fame:
With its lengthy tradition of installation of stone block stars representing the globally famous and important people of motion pictures, television, radio, live theatre and recording (collectively known as “The Industry”), The Hollywood Walk of Fame became one of the most popular tourist spots in the United States and one of the primary associations with Hollywood. The sidewalks of Hollywood Boulevard and Vine Street in Hollywood now feature 2393 stars bearing the names of both human celebrities and fictional characters awarded by the Hollywood Chamber of Commerce for their contributions to the entertainment industry.

Tamara Obrovac's New Project "Istriaireland"
IDM’s domestic ethno star Tamara Obrovac has started a new project titled “IstraIrska” (“IstriaIreland”) in which she gathered an ensemble of Croatian, Irish and Slovenian musicians with a repertoire of their original works, but also remixes of Croatian, Slovenian and Irish compositions.
The ensemble “IstriaIrska” already played several concerts in Ireland and this Valentine’s Day Sunday, they debuted in Croatia with a concert held at the Istrian National Theatre in Pula.
In the meantime, the project continues to develop - compositions and recordings will be fixed on sound carriers – and the ensemble will continue touring Croatia, Ireland as well as other countries.
Singer, composer and lyrics writer Tamara Obrovac is one of the most meaningful figures on the Croatian music scene which she has enriched tremendously through her musical expressions in which she combines Istrian traditional music and dialect with her own style full of improvisation, humor and freedom.
In addition to her concert appearances, Tamara composes music for ballet, theatre and movies, for which she has received multiple awards.
Her discography to date contains 6 albums. In the past few years Tamara has gained significant recognition on the global music scene with the nominations for the World Music Awards 2004.
