Dino Merlin About

Edin Dervišhalidović (born on September 12, 1962 in Sarajevo), better known as Dino Merlin, is a Bosnian pop-rock singer and composer. He is one of the greatest Ex-Yu authors and singers, and the winner of numerous awards, and twice a participant in the Eurovision Song Contest. He is the author of the text of the first anthem of the Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina "You are the only one". He began his musical career with the group Merlin in 1983, for which he wrote lyrics, music, and sang at the time, making him one of the most prominent frontmen in the former Yugoslavia. With the group Merlin he recorded 5 studio albums: Kokuzna vremena (1985), Teško meni sa tobom a još tvoje bez tebe (1986), Merlin (1987), Nešto lijepo treba da desi (1989) and Peta strana svijeta (1990). He began his solo career in 1991 under the pseudonym "Dino Merlin". The lyrics for the mass audience, derived from personal experience, are one of the main reasons that allows him to be known as one of the greatest authors on the Bosnian and regional music scene. Increasingly, Dino uses instruments of oriental, ethno music, harmonized with the new sounds of electronic music. A great example of this is the song "Sam" from his album "Sredinom". Since 1991, he has recorded several albums, several of which are compilations and concert recordings. The album "Sredinom" (2000) was one of the best-selling albums in Southeast Europe in the early 2000s. After the release of the album "Sredinom", Dino organized a concert in Sarajevo, which was attended by more than 80,000 fans of his music. To his long list of successes, he adds two participations in the national elections for the Eurovision Song Contest. In 1999, Dino Merlin won and represented Bosnia and Herzegovina at the Eurovision final in Jerusalem, winning seventh place. At the 56th Eurovision Song Contest held in Germany, Dino Merlin represented Bosnia and Herzegovina with a song called "Love in Rewind". The song was premiered at the BH Eurosong competition. It was probably the first time Dino had sung a song in English. He won the sixth place and surpassed his ranking from 1999 in Jerusalem, and achieved the second best placement of Bosnia and Herzegovina in this prestigious competition. He also successfully participates in several international festivals (Denmark, Turkey, etc.). On May 30, 2014, the song "Rose" was released, which is also the first song from his 11th album called "Hotel Nacional", which in June 2014 was on Billboard's world charts in 8th place. He is known as one of the few musicians and singers who, in addition to large Balkan halls, also filled large stadiums as part of promotional and concert activities in the last 20 or more years. His numerous hits have garnered multimillion-dollar views on YouTube. In addition to music, he also held administrative positions where, as part of the Association of Composers and Musicians (AMUS), he held the position of President of the Assembly in the period 2014-2019. He is married and has two children, and currently lives in Sarajevo.
