Mostar Sevdah Reunion

The remarkable story of Mostar Sevdah Reunion is one of human harmony in the midst of human conflict. Formed at the height of the war in Bosnia-Herzegovina, surrounded by daily death and destruction, their candlelit concerts provided people with a sense that the world could be different from the tragedy that surrounded them.
Mostar Sevdah Reunion are leading exponents of a musical tradition that holds a special place in the cultural heritage of Bosnia. Sevdah music, brought to medieval Bosnia by the Turks, has a vivid and exciting edge that is filled with love and ecstasy. In the hands of the brilliant musicians of Mostar Sevdah Reunion, it is music with deep sensitivity and emotional intensity, played on an array of instruments including accordion, clarinet, violin, guitars, double bass and drums allied with powerful vocals.
