Sounds of Montenegro: Rambo Amadeus

June 20, 2018 - Antonije Pušić, known professionally as Rambo Amadeus, is a Montenegrin musician, author, and performer. A self-titled "musician, poet, and media manipulator", he is a popular phenomenon on the music scenes of the former Yugoslavia.

His songs combine satirical lyrics on human nature and silliness of local politics with a mixture of musical styles including jazz, rock, hip-hop and lately drum and bass, and self-conscious ironic wit; for example, his most popular alias is "Rambo Amadeus Svjetski Kilo Car"— "Rambo Amadeus the World Kilo Tzar", formerly "Rambo Amadeus Svjetski Mega Car"— "Rambo Amadeus the World Mega Tzar" (RASMC) (changed in 2012 because of his belief in the importance of modesty in an environmentally conscious society). His stage name itself is made from John Rambo and Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart.

At the beginning of his career, his sound was a seemingly coarse blend of folkish ululations and even opera, further mixed in with humorous lyrics and classic guitar riffs. Since very few people had any prior knowledge of him, Rambo delighted in creating confusion by introducing himself as a common mine shaft operator who saved up enough money to record an album. He referred to his own musical style as turbo folk, long before the term would obtain grave social connotations and come to symbolize moral and cultural decline throughout the Balkans during the wars of the 1990s.

The cataclysm of Communism, a controversial song that was almost banned in 1989:

He represented Montenegro in the Eurovision Song Contest 2012 in Baku, Azerbaijan, with the song "Euro Neuro".
