A native of Šibenik, Arsen Dedić was born to a mixed marriage of a Serbian father and a Croat mother. Arsen became a household name in the 1960s, thanks to pop music festivals and his brand of music, which was at first influenced by Dalmatian folklore, but is mostly comparable to the French chanson genre. Throughout the decades Dedić became one of the most respected musicians in former SFR Yugoslavia and maintained this reputation to this day.
Apart from writing songs, Dedić also writes music for films. He is also an award-winning and one of the best-selling poets of ex-Yugoslavia. Notable books of poetry include "Brod u Boci" (Croatia Concert, Zagreb, 1971), "Hotel Balkan" (Znanje, Zagreb, 1987), "101 Pjesma" (Svjetlost, Sarajevo, 1989) and others.
Arsen Dedić is married to Gabi Novak, famous pop singer in her own right.
Arsen's brother Milutin Dedić, a famous fotographer lives in Belgrade.
