Aki Rahimovski (1955 - 2022)

Aki Rahimovski, singer and frontman of Croatian band Parni Valjak, died suddenly yesterday in Novo Mesto, Slovenia.

I had a pleasure and honour to work with Parni Valjak as their official photographer for their biggest gigs in Croatia since 2017 concert in Arena Zagreb. COVID-19 stoped all their planed activities for two years (including big finale of the 2019/20 tour with the concert in Arena Zagreb planned for 2020), but with restrictions lifting and things looking better, a new Croatian tour was planed for the 2022 which we were all were excited about. Sadly, just one month before the start of it, Aki Rahimovski unexpectedly passed away.

From what I had a chance to work and interact with him, I can only say that Mr. Rahimovski was a true gentleman in a every sense of that word. Kind and approachable behind the stage, wild and energetic on stage. A true professional and an amazing frontmen. A pure joy to photograph performing, to say it in photographic terms.

He will be greatly, greatly missed…

Arena Zagreb, Zagreb (Croatia), 26/03/2022

Memoriam to Aki and his career, with different singers performing with Parni Valjak. Aki Rahimovski is irreplaceable, but his colleagues did a great job paying respect to his legacy and helped fans to once again hear and enjoy all those favourite songs live.

Spaladium Arena, Split (Croatia), 02/11/2019

Split, second largest city in Croatia was, after Šibenik and Rijeka, my third big concert working for Parni Valjak in 2019, probably the biggest rock band in the region, on their "Runda 44" tour.

Parni Valjak, arguably the biggest rock band in the region, is on the "Runda 44" tour and I got hired to photograph few of their bigger concerts in Croatia — amazing venue of Tvrđava sv. Mihovila in Šibenik being the first on my list!

Arena Zagreb, Zagreb (Croatia), 01/12/2017

Shooting the sold out concert of the probably the biggest rock’n’roll band in Croatia and one of the biggest in the ex Yugoslavia region, in front of almost 20 000 people as an official photographer for the band with AAA pass is definitely a dream come true for any concert photographer! :)
