Helem Nejse

To call Helem Nejse a Hip Hop crew would be too simple. The Sarajevo-based collective is not only doing music, they also host a weekly two-hour talk radio show (with guests and live call-ins) and created a theater show called “Sarajevo Days of Terrorism”. The output of the group around rappers Admir Cular and Amer Cankovic is impressive, to say the least, both in terms of quantity and quality. The two twentysomethings challenge common perceptions of everyday life in Bosnia and the memories of the war in the 1990s, often with a humourous approach. For our portrait we meet Admir and Amer just before their radio show, join them into the studio and watch them perform live in an abandoned retirement home in outer Sarajevo.
