Album: Amira, Amulette (World Village)
Sunday 29 April 2012
Sarajevo-born Amira Medunjanin sings "sevdah", the urban folk music of Bosnia drawing on styles from Ottoman, Magyar, Roma, and Ladino sources.
It's tinged with sadness, but is mostly to do with making love by moonlight. Dubbed "Bosnia's Billie Holiday", Amira has found new realms of expression in it. This sees her teaming up with pianist Bojan Z plus a small but expressive band, where the bass acts as ballast for Amira's breathy flights above.
