Da sam ptica


The Sarajevo-based band Divanhana mix traditional music (with a particular accent to Sevdalinka) with pop appeal and gained international success with it. It is especially nice to meet them in their hometown so that they can send out a musical postcard to their fans near and far. Also their choice of song seems very apt for the setting. “If I were a bird” as it means translated to English “and had wings, I would fly across the entire Bosnia”. When Naida Catic is singing about their home country, all the other noises on this busy square seem to drown out. And as unexpected as this animated and rousing performance started, it is over again. Applause!
