Wednesday, July 4th, starting at 9.15pm the beautiful voice of Bosnian singer Amira Medunjanin, Billie Holiday from Bosnia, awaits at the Municipal Palace Park in Gorizia. Born in Sarajevo in the seventies, today she is the only interpreter of Slavic language capable of exporting her country’s traditional music outside its borders. Amira is the largest exponent of sevdah, the folk music of Bosnia and Herzegovina, a genre closely linked to its culture, in the same way as the fado in Portugal or the morna in Cape Verde. “The sevdah is difficult to define,” explains Amira. “It’s not just musical tradition, but a lifestyle, the reflection of memory, and sevdah’s songs, tell the beauty of life, desire, but also sadness, melancholy, the abyss of despair“. It will be accompanied by the guitar of Ante Gelo, one of the most influential producers of the Croatian jazz scene, as well as an excellent guitarist and performer.
