about

Music about being hunted, escaping and finding oneself inarticulate in a foreign place, saying goodbye to homeland & loved ones forever, themes close to the hearts of many so-called ‘new arrivals’ today—how to be ‘here’ whilst also being very much from ‘there’.


EXIT is inspired by Tania’s parent’s rich musical heritage and
her father’s extraordinary defection story.
In 1957, when the former Jugoslavia still lay behind the iron curtain, Rudy Bosak, a talented musician of Croatian descent, was interrogated by the leader of the Jedinstvo Društvo Ensemble as a possible defection risk. In spite of this, he was permitted to tour Belgium with the eighty member folkloric ensemble, twelve of whom were secret informers for the state.
Despite the surveillance and atmosphere of mistrust, Rudy along with two of his fellow musicians Ante and Fanito, did manage to defect after the final performance.

SONG TRANSLATIONS
Thanks to Aleksandra Acker and Lara
Jakica for lyric and translation assistance.

Translation by Aleksandra Acker
You think you know everything…but what
about your stories, your lies?
Feed yourself for now, but know that
judgment awaits you.
Looking for a mother, barefoot in the night.
Too many nights like this, and too many
dreams of being elsewhere.
Do let me know what they are doing, if your
courage allows.
Write to me, and tell me how you are.
Do you have a warm coat, and shoes?
Shut your mouth!
Who did the pig? Not me!
You, shut up!
Work like a dog, and swallow your own
sweat.
Don’t look, don’t talk, I see everything.
Looking for a mother, barefoot in the night.
Too many nights like this, and too many
dreams of being elsewhere.
Track Name: Don't Ask (tango)
DON’T ASK.
Music by Tania Bosak
Lyrics by Croatian poet Vesna Parun
Translation by Aleksandra Acker
Don’t ask again why I love you.
Ask why grass grows, and why the sea is
restless?
Where does the spring wind come from, and
who steers the white ship of dreams,
when the night spreads cold shadows over
the world?
Why do you ask how I love you?
My heart is a home for sadness.
You and the moon, like two distant flowers
forgotten on the mountain.
