Roni is 39 years old. He plays cello, is the member of the symphony orchestra, the creator of several music groups and a licensed tour guide.

Serbia, member of the European Union, is the country Roni wants to see in the future. “I would like to see Serbia as an organized country which is the member of the European Union, without losing its identity and Serbian people preserving their pride, which is one of their basic traits.”

As a tour guide, Roni considers the non-pollution of the natural beauties as one of the most important things in the country. “Serbia is not yet contaminated, it still has the charm of something wild.” The cultural remains and influences of the west are more visible in Vojvodina than in the rest of Serbia. “Even today, I still see the traces, cultural remnants and influences of the west that are more natural here [in Vojvodina] than Belgrade and the rest of Serbia, because of the architectural and linguistic heritage. You can hear both Hungarian and Romanian in the street, and the people speaking those languages are not the tourists.”

The unwillingness of the society to change because of the constant transition that has been happening in Serbia for years, is a negative feature of Serbia. “I just think that this society is not ready enough to change, it is not mature enough to turn to themselves and think about what each of us can change for the better. I think that’s the core of all our issues. The Serbian people are in a kind of an eternal transition. Everything is cyclical here. Every time you return to the same, you go around and you’re on the same again.”

Roni does many things related to music, from playing, through composing, to establishing music groups and associations. In addition to his great performance on the Serbian music scene, he finds time not only to tour Serbia, but to show it off to others as well.
