Louis The Last King of Balkans
(25.06.1952. - 31.07.2011.)

Ljubisa Stojanovic , nicknamed Louis (after Armstrong) is probably the best-kept musical secret of the Balkans. If any musician has deserved to become an absolute global star it's him: a multi-instrumentalist and a phenomenal singer who can effortlessly move from deeply moving Eastern-Serbian ballads to a soul or jazz classic scat-singing n' all within a minute. Louis was one of the very few musicians working today who's completely comfortable in both his Balkans' musical tradition and the Western jazz and pop.
On the cusp of his world breakthrough he died 31st of July 2011. in a horrible car accident.
He was 59.
We will never forget him.
