amira

The acclaimed diva of Bosnian sevdah, Amira Medunjanin has been likened to Om Kalthoum and Billie Holiday, hailed as the star of Balkan Blues, the finest export of Bosnia, or simply described as brilliant. Her subtle, clear yet deeply moving voice matches the passionate and melancholy genre of sevdah or sevdalinka. As her latest album, Silk & Stone attests Medunjanin is a mature singer accompanied by excellent musicians: jazz pianist Bojan Zulfikarpašić and Nenad Vasilic on bass provide smooth and remarkable accompaniment. The emotional depth in Medunjain’s singing is rooted in her homeland’s troubled history: the Bosnian war left its traces in her childhood as much as the country’s life. Listening to Medunjanin’s captivating performance we may brood questions of love and fate, transported by her magical voice.
