Album Notes
Raised in the multiethnic milieu of the former Yugoslavia, Luti grew up immersed in diverse European folk music, some of it in peculiar time signatures, such as 7/8. This influence, combined with exposure to melodic rock and classical music helped forge Luti’s eclectic music style. Luti arrived in the U.S. in 1988 to pursue higher education, just as his home country slowly collapsed into a civil war, leaving an indelible imprint on Luti’s artistic impulse. One of the outcomes of these days of agony is Across the Ocean, which brought Luti forward as a December 2008 finalist in VH1’s international contest Song of the Year.
In southeastern Michigan, Luti has performed solo, with his son Jasen, and also with Brian Wood as one of the two Partly Brothers, who released the CD From the Start in 2008. Luti's solo debut, Half a Century Later, features a wide array of songs, including a couple of instrumental tracks. Joined by several fabulous guest musicians, Luti has created an album filled with emotion and beautifully arranged. These haunting melodies highlight Luti’s harmonious vocals, intricate guitar work and sophisticated percussion, bringing to American folk tradition the subtle rhythms and sounds of Eastern European and Middle Eastern folk music.

Half A Century Later
Your CD – a lovely holiday tribute with a message ‘Peace on earth, good will to men’
It is your own personalized, artistic expression of the values that have guided your life, the truth about how the world should be (no wars) and the admirable qualities you possess about family, love, respect, and forgiveness. The music is incredibly beautiful, and sophisticated. My favorite (#2 - 2:54 – 3:15) ' Place Called Home’ Your voice and music together are simply divine! It’s music with a purpose when you feel like you’ve been spiritually cleansed every time you hear it (sanctuary for my soul). Thank you so much for sharing your music, your seemingly endless talent, and for giving me a special occasion to always look forward to. Extraordinary job with so much meaning - no man should ever ‘walk alone in the sunrise’.


Strong, Sweet, and Sad
My favorites: A Place Called Home and Carry On. I enjoyed this album. It had a good mixture of loud and rock-y, and soft and yearning. Some songs made me feel a little sad with longing (a good thing).
