Ulica sončnega zahoda (Ger: Abendrot in Oberkrain) translates from German to “Afterglow in Gorenjska” or from Slovenian to “Sunset street”. This waltz was written by Niko Zlobko (1940-2021), who was Ensemble Lojze Slak’s guitar and clarinet player, and artistic director. He helped create Slak’s legendary sound, created vocal arrangements for Fantje s Praprotna and instrumental arrangements for the trio, among other contributions. Interestingly this song was recorded at least 2 times: by Ansambel Lojzeta Slaka in the 1980s, and Ansambel Jožeta Burnika in the 1990s, with whom Zlobko recorded at least 1 album. Many clarinet duet recordings by Slak’s ensemble featured Niko Zlobko and his son Tomaž Zlobko. Niko Zlobko has also been credited for other groups’ arrangements over the years. In my opinion, his guitar rhythm is unlike anyone else’s in the genre, and his clarinet duets are so beautiful they give me goosebumps.
