I felt like watching one of the popular music and guest shows on Slovenian national TV –Spet doma (Home Again) – and was pleasantly surprised with one of the guests – a newly discovered singer – Maja Pihler – Bilbi – whose very first song “Hvala za vijolice” (Thanks for the Violets) – became an over-night hit in Slovenia.

Just recently, Maja Pihler – Bilbi published her first CD which is also a huge success, ranking #3 bestselling Slovenian CD.

Anyway, “Hvala za vijolice” captured my attention when I first listened to it and I don’t really want to share how many times I’ve listened to the tune since… 🙂

Maja Pihler – Bilbi is this beautiful young lady with beautiful voice and the biggest smile ever. She lived and performed in musicals in Vienna and Berlin for a few years – before returning to Slovenia, where she is also an actress. Maja Pihler – Bilbi was born in Maribor.

Bilbi is a really great singer. Video for Hvala za vijolice is one of my favorite. 🙂
What do you think about the new song Kaj pa ti?

    “Kaj pa ti” is my second favorite by Bilbi, that’s for sure and I’ll use that video in one of my future posts on this blog. Thanks for stopping by, Timotej!! 🙂

This really was an overnight hit here. It’s been on the radio at least 10 times every day for a few months, hah.
