Time: 14th December, 8 pm
One of the most soulful singers in the Balkan regions and one of the best interpreters of the Bosnian sevdalinka, Amira Medunjanin will perform at the Serbian National Theatre on Friday, together with the Vojvodina Symphony Orchestra. Medunjanin was born in Sarajevo and her fascination with the oral tradition of Bosnia and Herzegovina led her to devote herself to creating a unique voice. Singer, humanitarian, and global ambassador for both the culture and music of her native Bosnia & Herzegovina and the wider Balkan region, Medunjanin has been described as ”one of the great voices of her generation, with a voluptuous sound that hovers enticingly between East and West” by the British daily, The Observer.
