Singer. Born Zilha Barjaktarevic, she started singing very early. After quickly making a name locally as prominent singer, she moved to capital Belgrade in search of expanded career opportunities. Soon upon arrival she took a stage name Silvana after Italian actress Silvana Mangano and married tennis player Radmilo Armenulic. Her career took off simultaneously and she went on to become one of the biggests commercial folk stars in SFR Yugoslavia. This led to numerous and well publicized country-wide singing engagements, and later still to appearances in popular TV sitcoms and movies. Unfortunatelly, her life and career were cut short. She died in a car accident along with her pregnant sister Mirjana (Merima) Barjaktarevic. Her songs are remembered and performed even today.
