Mostar Sevdah Reunion is exquisite group of Artists sharing the same passion. Some might say that they live for Sevdah and that could be the only cause of their existence. To decode and to represent traditional music from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Sevdah is more than 400 years old, in a best light, was and still is difficult task to cope with. Despite all obstacles, MSR kept going. The story begins in 1993 when Dragi Sestic, Producer and former of the band, recorded an audiocassette with a couple of tracks that was distributed in limited edition amoung their friends. Those were the times of war in Balkans and the reason for recording was just a getaway episode to forget for a one single moment all atrocities and suffering. Then, they gave promise that "the whole world will know about Sevdah" one day when war comes to an end. They fulfilled the promise and recorded their first album in 1998. Since, the album CD "Mostar Sevdah Reunion" was recorded in Mostar, they did not stop fascinating the audience wherever they go. Diversity in musical backgrounds and individual virtuosity in a collective that never performed two identical gigs in a row makes them unique on the World Music scene. Working and recording with Saban Bajramovic "A Gypsy Legend" , Ljiljana Buttler "The Mother of Gypsy soul", Esma Redzepova "The Queen of Gypsies", Boban Markovic , Naat Veliov and Amira were recorded to show variety of Balkans music an to give a respect to the finest and uncompromised authors of genuine Gypsy music. This year will also bring new and fresh ideas from the MSR manufacture. Until then, take care and see you soon
