For nearly two decades Vlado Kreslin has been in the centre of the Slovenian popular music scene, and over the past few years has surely reached the height of his creativity and popularity.
He began as a singer in rock groups (Martin Krpan), gradually breaking through to the foreground also as the author of numerous unforgettable songs. At the same time, he was beginning to go back more and more to his own roots and draw upon the creative energy of the musical heritage of Prekmurje, the Slovene region which is his homeland. Through his appearances with Beltinška banda - a group of Prekmurje folk singers and musicians in their seventies and eighties - Kreslin enriched his repertoire with folk-songs of the region.
In the meantime Vlado Kreslin has brought together a number of younger musicians into the group Mali bogovi (Little Gods), and with them plays his compositions in more mainstream rock arrangements with the touch of the flatlands of Prekmurje. Often members of Mali bogovi join Beltinška banda on stage, and in this way music continues to bridge generations, both for those on stage and those in the audience.
With his melange of so-called "world music" and his own songs, Kreslin won over several generations of Slovenes.
