Dragana Šarić

(Belgrade, 2nd October, 1962), singer and composer better known as Bebi Dol. Her musical activities began in the late seventies in a group called Tarkus and she achieved fame with Mustafa/Na planeti uzdaha released with Goran Vejvoda. Mustafa, was voted the best pop song in Yugoslavia in 1981 and was re-released, two years later, on her debut album, Ruže i krv, to great critical acclaim and popular success. Her next album, Ritam srca Bebi Dol, was released more than a decade later, in 1995, even though she regularly performed as a pop and jazz singer (for three years she lived in Cairo, singing in Sheraton hotels), recording and appearing as a guest artist on the albums of other artists. The second pause in her work came in the late nineties and her album, Ljuta sam, was released only in 2002. Her last release, Čovek rado izvan sebe živi, in 2006 contains many of her arrangements. Throughout her career Bebi Dol has performed in festivals in the Balkan region but her greatest success came when she was Yugoslav representative at the Eurovision song contest in Rome in 1991.
