Porodi?na Manufaktura Crnog Hleba (Serbian Cyrillic: ; trans. Rye Bread Family Manufacture) were a Yugoslav acoustic rock band and a theatre group. They were one of the pioneers of the Yugoslav acoustic rock scene.

Band history

The band was formed in 1968 by Maja de Rado (songwriter, vocals and twelve string guitar), Jugoslav Vlahovi? (acoustic guitar) and Slobodan Kuzmanovi? (acoustic guitar). Being close relatives, they named the band Porodi?na Manufaktura Crnog Hleba. At the beginning of 1969, they were joined by Petar Pavi?i? (double bass). The band worked with several flutists: Vlada Bogosavljevi?, Sreten Tasi? and Branko Malko?. The band held happenings in the basement of Atelje 212 theatre, and during 1972 and 1973 performed alternative play Porodi?na manufaktura crnog hleba - balada Maje de Rado (Rye Bread Family Manufacture - A Ballad by Maja de Rado), during which they performed their music.

In 1974 they released their debut album Stvaranje (The Creation).[1] Following the release of Stvaranje they started performing a play with the same name at Atelje 212 during which they played photographic slides and short films. The painter Dobrivoje Petrovi? performed with the band, playing sitar. At the time of recording of their second studio album, Porodi?na Manufaktura Crnog Hleba disbanded due to the male members' army obligations.

Post breakup

After the breakup Maja de Rado dedicated herself to classical music and meditation poetry and Vlahovi? started working as a designer and cartoonist.

In 1994, the band's song "Ne?to" ("Something") was released on Komuna compilation album Sve smo mogli mi: Akusti?arska muzika (We Could Have Done All: Acoustic Music), which featured songs by Yugoslav acoustic rock acts.[2]

Slobodan Kuzmanovi? died on 26 January 2014. He was 61 years old.[3]
