Born in Zagreb, Croatia, 1961.

Discovered as a gifted tenor voice, Mr. Djuran started his musical education in 1987. The education, sponsored by Zagrebačka banka, Zagreb, started with the world known opera singer, Ms. Biserka Cvejić and was continued afterwards with professor Doroteja Cesnik-Spasić, and professor Marija Borčić.


His first performance as a concert singer was in 1989 (Bach - Magnificat). The 1990 audition for the role of Pedrillo in Mozart's The Abduction from the Seraglio opened the doors to the world of opera and operetta to Mr. Djuran. Since then Mr. Djuran has performed in the following roles:
