It has been confirmed that Denis Cabric, the bass player for Bosnia and Herzegovina rock band Regina, has died after suffering a heart attack while on a family holiday in Croatia. As part of Regina, Cabric represented Bosnia and Herzegovina at Eurovision 2009 with the song “Bistra voda”.

Regina broke the news to fans with a touching tribute on their Facebook page.

Cabric was the co-founder of Regina in Yugoslavia back in 1990, with Alexander Covic and Bojan Milicevic. Along with their very first vocalist, Davor Ebner, the band released two albums before the war broke out, and had become one Yugoslavia’s most popular bands. However, in 1992, Davor Ebner left the band. The band went on to release 11 albums.

In later years, Cabric also worked for the Bosnian and Herzegovinia national broadcaster BHRT, along with steadily writing music for children’s shows, documentaries and movies.

In 2009, BHRT chose Regina to represent the country in Eurovision. Cabric and the band, who had reunited with Davor Ebner three years earlier, flew off to Moscow with their powerful song “Bistra Voda” (“Clear Water”) which was written by Alexander Covic. The group reached a respectable ninth place with 106 points, giving Bosnia and Herzegovina one of its best results.

Denis Cabric was 49. We at wiwibloggs send our deepest condolences to Denis Cabric’s family, friends and bandmates.

I thought the song was called “Precious Morning”? In the english version you hear him sing that. Regardless, this song is and always will always be one of my favorites of all Eurovision songs. Sad to hear of his passing. Kinda hit me odd since were both the same age. He had a great voice and very talented. The world lost someone great today.
