NEW SONG: Damir Imamović’s Sevdah Takht’s new song ‘Lijepa Zejno’
‘Lijepa Zejno’ from the upcoming album ‘Dvojka’. The title, Dvojka, refers (perhaps slightly provocatively) to the 2/4 rhythm of modern sevdah’s ‘golden age’ of the 1950s and 60s, when many of the conventions of the genre were codified, and when what you couldn’t do had as much weight as what you could. There is enough affection for those conventions to make it a tribute, albeit a sceptical one, to those earlier Radio Sarajevo generations.
Listen to ‘Lijepa Zejno’ here.
