INmusic Festival 2017 was a very special event for a bass player and singer with the name of Roko Crnic. On day 1, he performed before the headliner Arcade Fire on the main stage in the backing band of the Croatian art rock legend, Darko Rundek. On day 3, Roko was back to the festival on the Hidden Tent stage with his own band, Porto Morto, to play an impressive selection of songs from their eponymous debut album, self-released via Bandcamp, late 2016.
Zrinko, Mario and Jasmin started their friendship through music when they were in an elementary school in Virovitica, Eastern Croatia. Even then, they were making original music and experimented with recordings and sound production, despite the lack of the professional music equipment. Later, Zrinko and Mario went on to study music in Zagreb and Vienna, and Jasmin started to develop his woodcrafting skills by making his own instruments. During this time, the old friends played in different bands. Eventually, all of them ended back up in their hometown and started ZmaJ.
