Born in a family with strong musical tradition (his father, Ljubo Stipišić is well known composer), Zlatan Stipišić, who later embraced the nickname Gibonni, began his career in 1980s in a heavy metal band Osmi Putnik.
Gibonni switched to solo career in 1990s with songs that combined elements of rock, modern pop and Dalmatian folk songs. He soon created a huge following, especially among Croatian youth.
However, despite that, Gibonni's popularity continued to grow beyond Croatia and he is currently one of the most popular and influential musicians in the territories of former Yugoslavia.
One of the most famous songs written by Gibonni is "Cesarica". "Cesarica" is a song that he wrote for Oliver Dragojević, which turned out to be a very big hit and became a Croatian evergreen.
In 2003 Zlatan Stipišić was appointed UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador. He has three children. Daughter Tanja born in 1986. Son Rando was born in 1998. It is believed that his name Rando - short from random comes from Gibonni's indecision to give him a name, which is shown again in August of 2005, when his third child was born, and had no name for several months, until finally he was given the name Lorenzo.
Gibonni released his long awaited new album Unca fibre in May 2006 after a five-year period following his award-winning album Mirakul, and was praised by critics. In 2010 he released the album Toleranca.
