Astor Lajka (Novi Sad/Serbia)

Astor Lajka

He is a singer-songwriter, street musician, rocker and vagabond, devoted to adventure, art and his own expression, which he carefully creates and nurtures. He is coming to Gradić directly from the streets of Novi Sad, laureled with the first prize he won at the last year’s Takt Festival in Novi Sad.

Astor was born in Valjevo, in 1988, but he has woven the thread of his life through various artistically different localities, so besides having his solo career, he is also the frontman of the band Lajka na Mesecu from Gornji Milanovac, a member of the art movement “Sobakaisti”, and the author of the blog about performing on streets “Busking Around the World”. He has gained his rich experience by performing on the streets of Prague, Milan, Seville and Cádiz, cities across Serbia and ex-Yugoslavia region. He is the author of numerous compositions, but he still hasn’t gathered his pieces in the firm form of a debut album – so far, the Internet has been enough for that purpose.
