The 19th Annual Croatian Discography Awards, Porin, will be held this Saturday, May 5th in the beautiful city of Rijeka and Opatija at the Croatian seaside. Backline for this year’s live performances will be provided by Zildjian's Croatian distributor, Euromusic Agency/Music Centar. The show will be broadcast on Croatian National Television (HRT) on Saturday at 8:00 PM, with the live performances from some of Croatia’s biggest bands and artists. If you have a chance, be sure to watch – the show will also be streaming live on their homepage.
Established in 1993, Porin is the most prestigious discography award in Croatia and covers all musical ranges from pop to rock, ethno, jazz and classical music. It is also a very significant award for musicians, since the nominees are selected by fellow professional musicians, composers, music editors, music producers, arrangers, and critics.
Some of the nominees for the category "Hit of the Year" include playing by Zildjian Artists Damir Somen (Majke), Josip Kamenski (Opca Opasnost), Mario Robert Kasumovic (Vatra) and many others.
