Val Kiossovski and Gino Jevđević (/u/ginoyevdjevich) from Kultur Shock are the focus of this week's Upvoted by reddit. We discuss Gino’s rise to pop stardom in Yugoslavia as Gino Banana; the Bosnian War; Gino’s production of the musical ‘Hair’ during the war; how Joan Baez helped Gino emigrate to the United States; Val’s upbringing in communist Bulgaria; how a song Val wrote granted him status as a political dissident; the inception of Kultur Shock in Seattle; working with Billy Gould from Faith No More; overcoming prejudice in the music industry; finding success in Europe, returning to the Balkans, their new record IX, and Gino’s most recent AMA.

 

This episode features Billy Gould from Faith No More.

 

This episode also features God is Busy by Kultur Shock, Amerika by Gino Banana, and Home by Kultur Shock.
