He founded his band in 1998, which for a certain time carried the name “Vasilic Nenad Balkan Band.” His wish was to combine jazz with the musical tradition of the Balkans. Nenad has realized seven albums under his name. During his career he worked with numerous international jazz musicians, including Mark Murphy, Sheila Jordan, Stjepko Gut, Natasa Mirkovic De Ro, Laurie Antonioli and Bojan Zulfikarpasić. Through his project “Reka”, in cooperation with singer Amira Medunjanin and ten other musicians from South Eastern Europe, he played within the musical program of the Olympic Games in London.
