NOLA (1993-)

Nola is one of the most popular bands from Pula ever. Founded in 1993. by one of the most romantic pair around, Gabrijela and Marijan Jelenic, this electro-acoustic band quickly topped the radio-charts with their first huge hit "Dio Tebe", a song that nowadays is in the top ten of the most played songs on the radio of the croatian history. Every further album brought Nola another huge hit and acknowledgements wherever they played. Gabi is elected as the best croatian female rock singer in 1998, and the song "Iznad Oblaka" as croatian song of the year 2009. Seems like there is no stop for their successful carreer.

Their last huge hit, the beautiful song "Iznad oblaka" is another video recorded in the streets of Pula, as well as at the Pula train station (The picture up is taken at the video recording session)

And "Iznad Oblaka" videotaped by me, at last year`s Spancirfest in Varazdin.
