If you have ever attended a choral festival on this continent, you probably heard at least one of his compositions. If you have ever attended a Divine Liturgy responded to by a choir, you have probably heard one of his arrangements during the service. Even if you attended liturgy responded to by a single chanter, they probably sang a traditional church hymn notated by Stevan Stojanovic Mokranjac, one of the most significant composers in Serbian history /program and poster/.

Jordan Nikolic was born in Prizren, Kosovo and Metohija, in 1933. He studied Serbian language and literature at the Belgrade University, however he was interested in the folk music and motivated to become a musician and a folk singer.
Nikolic had his first serious contacts with the singing of folk songs, and at the same time the first recordings, in Radio Pristina back in 1961. Two years later, he also became a music editor. In 1968, he started recording for Radio Belgrade, never stopping to expand his repertoire of the Kosovo folk songs and the circle of fans.
