Press Clipping

AMIRA MEDUNJANIN/Damar: In Bosnia, songs of sadness and hope exist somewhere between blues and saudade with Medunjanin giving voice to the sound of sevdah that stretches back to it's roots over 500 years ago while looking a little past today. Singing in her native tongue, this sounds like something that lands somewhere between folk music and flamenco playing with it's intricate guitar melodies that can say a lot by playing a little. One of those ethnic records where the songs communicate even if you don't know what the singer is singing about, this comes across at the very least as one of those sophisticated foreign dates that plays well with wine and low lighting or cabaret settings. A solid, out of the ordinary treat.
