Marko Vukadinović, born in Čačak, Serbia, in 1980, lives in Seattle with his wife Mirjana. Gifted as a dancer, singer, and accordionist, he toured with the Abrasević ensemble of Čačak and the Branko Krsmanović ensemble of Belgrade, and won a gold medal as best amateur dancer at the Kragujevac festival in 2000, before moving to the U.S.
