Du Du A (Serbian Cyrillic: ?) was a Serbian alternative rock band from Belgrade.

History

Du Du A was formed in 1981 by the former Grupa I member Dejan Kosti? (guitar, bass, vocals) and the former VIA Talas member Vuk Vuja?i?. The two started writing material which featured a combination of funk, reggae and dance music. During the late 1981, the band was joined by the former Gane?a member Zoran Zagor?i? (keyboards, vocals). A number of musicians collaborated with the group, including Neboj?a Antonijevi? "Riki Rif", Goran Vejvoda, Bebi Dol, Sa?a Habi?, Dejan Stanisavljevi?, Aleksandar Ja?imovi?, Igor Gorstu?ki and Vlada Funtek.

Their debut single "Ja Tarzan, ti D?ejn" ("I Tarzan, You Jane") was one of the first Yugoslav recordings to feature a form of rap music. The single appeared on the debut album Primitivni ples (Primitive Dance), produced by Dejan Kosti?, presenting the band's interest in a diverse range of at the time popular genres. The album featured the prominent songs "Solar", "Ja ne bi, ne bi, ne bi" ("I Would Not, Would Not, Would Not") and "Strast" ("Passion"), a cover version of the blues standard "Fever". The song "Zna? li devojku" ("Do You Know The Girl") featured the Kenyan vocalist Steve Haningtnon "Steva ?umadinac".

After the album release, during 1983 and 1984, the band was on hiatus because Kosti? had been in Egypt, performing in Cairo clubs. On his return, the band resumed their activities. However, with the exception of the single "Irie", released in 1985, the band had not released any material until the appearance of the acoustic version of the song "Era Vulgaris", recorded at the unplugged festival held on January 1994 in Sava Centar, on the various artists live album Bez struje (Unplugged), released by MTS Records in 1994.

The comeback album Ritual, released in 1996 on compact cassette only, beside the material entirely written by Kosti? also featured a cover version of the Stevie Wonder song "I Wish" with lyrics in Serbian language entitled "San" ("A Dream"). Kosti? recorded all the instruments on the album with the help of Milo? Pavlovi? (guitar, co-producer, co-author, sound technician), Nenad Jovanovi? (vocals), Sr?an Markovi? "?ile" (vocals) Aleksandar Ja?imovi? (saxophone) and Dejan Stanisavljevi? (piano).

The band's final lineup was Dejan Kosti? (vocals, sampler, guitars, bass, rhythm machine) and Vesna Zafirovi? (vocals).[1] On July 7, 2013, Dejan Kosti? died from injuries in a car accident.[2]

Legacy

The song "Zna? li devojku" appeared on the 95th place of the B92 Top 100 Domestic Songs list polled by the listeners of Radio B92 in 2006.[3]

The Serbian alternative rock band Svi na Pod! covered the song "Afrikanac u Beogradu" in 2008.[4]
