Miloš Karadaglić

Miloš Karadaglic´ grew up in a generally unsettled time in Montenegro, but despite that managed to gain adulation from almost anyone who heard him play his guitar as a boy.

He began playing at age eight and was soon performing publicly and gaining national accolades. Karadaglic´ managed to navigate the change from being a widely known figure in a country with a population less than one-tenth the size of that of London to living and attending school in London, without other family members and still a teenager. His parents always encouraged his music, and their support, even though from a distance, remained his anchor. Karadaglic´ cites Segovia, Williams, and Bream as his musical inspirations, and he hopes to bring back some of the popularity among a wider public for classical guitar music that those masters had in the 1970s. In 2010 Deutsche Grammophon signed Karadaglic´ to an exclusive contract, with his first album, Mediterráneo, released in spring 2011, featuring -- as expected, given his heroes -- Spanish music as well as works representing his Balkan roots. The album topped classical charts around the world, and just a year later he released the follow-up, Latino, which showcased South American repertoire from the likes of Piazzolla and Villa-Lobos. In 2016 he deviated slightly from his roots by covering a selection of Beatles classics on Blackbird: The Beatles Album. The album became somewhat of a breakout success for Karadaglic´, reaching number 24 on Billboard's Heatseeker chart. ~ Patsy Morita, Rovi
