Nacional, one of the largest daily newspapers in Yugoslavia, previews a large interview with Marina to be published in late January.
– “New York audience warms to Marina with standing ovations”
– “Marina’s concert was sold out several days in advance, which is a rare, especially for a debut, performance.”
– “Marina’s audience included Ambassadors, Prince Dimitri, actor/model Lydia Hearst, and pianist Richard Nanes.”
– “We (from the Balkans) learn to live for today and to celebrate this moment because we have learned the tragic truth that tomorrow may never appear. Full of sorrow and joy I am infusing emotion into and through my performances. With this energy I create emotions new for the typical audience.” – Marina
