Together with some of his college friends he started a band «Legen». Their first concert «Tribute to the Spring» happened on March 21st 1993.
In 1995 the same group formed «Ethnoambient», a festival dedicated to tradition based music from Croatia and all around the World which is still successfully introducing different cultures to each other celebrating beauty of cultural diversity.
Mojmir and Legen presented their music which many called «etno-rock» through numerous concerts throughout the World, theater and movie realizations, albums and domestic and international CD compilations.
Being a president of Ethno section of Croatian Musicians Union Mojmir also always tried to present other ethno musicians from Croatia in his travelings.
In 2002 members of Legen decided to take a break from each other and Mojmir formed a new group which got a name «Kries» which means «Bonfire» in obsolete form of Croatian language.
In the first year of this band's existence, they made music for «Konjanik» («Horseman»), movie by famous Croatian director Branko Ivanda and they continued to perform as one of the representatives of Croatian ethno fusion scene abroad and in Croatia. There first album «Ivo i Mara» (Kopito records) is dedicated to Ivo and Mara, two characters from Slavic mythology.
