The 2013 Croatian  Eurovison  entry has now got a brand new and more powerful sound after going through some finishing touches and mixing at the Bolognese BigStudio. Italian producer Luca Bignardi is behind the final version of Mizerja, he is a well known person in the Italian musical industry as he has been behind the mixing of  songs by famous and well recognised Italian artists: Eros Ramazzotti, Laura Pausini; Andrea Bocelli etc. The recording of the new version was done betwen the 14-16 February.

The main idea behind this project has been  to showcase authentic  Croatian music and sounds to the European audience – Klapa singing, but with a more European sound and influence. The Italian producer was the best solution as he understands our Mediterranean spirit, says Nikša Bratoš, producer of Mižerja. He goes on to add – I’m very satisfied with the final sound of the song. We’ve got that big sound the sound of the powerful orchestra and the most important – powerful vocals.
