Furunović brothers, Saša (guitar) and Goran (bass), founded the band named Popečitelji in 1999, in town of Priština, Serbia. They were already involved in musical events of various and indefinite genres, where they acquired many years of playing experience. Together with the drummer Rade Vulić, they commence their work on creating their own explosive mixture of instrumental funk-rock and folk music. After the end of bombardment, the band is leaving Priština, the town where this group has already gained its audience. Now they are moving to Kragujevac and Kraljevo, continuing their work and research upon fostering their own, already established, original music style. Through numerous concerts in these towns, as well as in Belgrade, the band becomes some sort of underground attraction. After one of these concerts, held in Belgrade in 2003, very much desired, and in certain way, logical collaboration with Koja (Disciplin A Kitschme) begins, and soon, results in creation of the first album, which was recorded in Music Factory studio, in Kosutnjak, near Belgrade, produced entirely by Koja. This album, named Ko radi? (Who’s working?), was released in 2004, by Mojo beat from Belgrade, and is counted for one of the best albums released that year in Serbia. This record presents brilliant combination of free, raw folk-funk rock and flawless, appropriately arranged, modern production, with the addition of trance and drum-and-bass elements. Popečitelji, through many concerts they held, only confirm the epithet of explosive concert band. Among others, these performances distinguish themselves: performing ahead of Maceo Parker, legendary saxophone player of James Brown (2003), and ahead of NoMeansNo (2005). Besides many concerts performed in Serbia, in 2005 Popečitelji also play their music on numerous concerts in Poland (Warsaw, Cienchanow), Italy (Milan, Rome), and France (Toulouse, Albi).
In 2008 they released their second album Horizonti.
