Famous "Cult Sarajevo Band INDEXI" were active in Sarajevo between 1962 and 2002. At this very spot, where their footprints are, they were formed...

Sarajevo is well known for the fact that in the '60s, '70s, '80s, even the '90s, it was the center of great music, great singers and great music bands that were popular not only locally in ex-Yugoslavia but some also in Europe, some even worldwide.

These music bands were a certain cult of Sarajevo, a new music era, especially in the pop-rock scene, performing songs with deep meanings, messages, lyrics that many could find themselves in, followed by great musical notes.

The songs made in that period are still hits and still provoke great emotions, not evergreen forgotten ones, but evergreen still listened in 2017. :- )

One of those bands was the band Indexi. To this day, their music and style, lyrics and voice of the lead singer Davorin Popović Pimpek remain unique.

He was an ordinary Sarajevo guy with an extraordinary voice and personality.

The street imprint monument for Index, a synonym of the Sarajevo rock music school, was made in 2016 on Ferhadija street.

There, it says: "On this very spot, in September 1962, Ismet Nuno Arnautalić and Šefko Akšamija established pop-rock band Indexi" and next to the sign are the imprints of their footsteps.

Indexi were active from 1962 to 2002 and they represented Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Eurovision song contest in 1995.

Davorin Popović died in 2001 leaving a great legacy for my hometown.

Stand on this spot and show respect and gratitude.
