ZHEL (1995-)

One of the most outstanding, yet mysterious artists from Pula, Zeljko Vukicevic a.k.a. Zhel started the ZHEL project with many guest musicians in 1995 (Zhel was his pseudonym from 1992/3, but decided later to call this band Zhel), but personally Zeljko is involved in music and the Pula Rock scene since the end of the 70s. With the ongoing activities of his project, the line-up which became more or less stable started to play as a band named ZHEL around 1996/97 .Zeljko is now living and working in London, he is actively involved in video art and movies, so on April 11th, Zeljko will perform a video installation in Pula. And he is still carying the band on, more as a personal project. 

PS: unfortunately, none of the Zhel releases will be available for download here. Instead, you can listen for free or buy the digital albums at the band`s bandcamp page :
