Mostar Sevdah Reunion presents “Tales from a Forgotten City” , their great and innovative new album.

Bosnia’s greatest musical export, the band that continues to evolve and change throughout a career spanning 11 years and six albums, now comes with something entirely different: a world music concept album, stronger – an unusual musical suite!

The freshness of sound is incredible, thanks to the changes in line-up recently undergone by the band. A few young musicians, full of hunger and with an impressive command of their instruments and voices, have taken the place of some of the more senior members, and have thereby pumped new blood into the band.

By bursting into the light, they bring the energy for a much-needed revival, both musically and in an even broader sense, by evoking the best of a past through beautiful songs. Many listeners are familiar already with the ache and passion of those songs, but now they will hear them played and sung like never before, with a singular delicacy and refinement that makes this album a love song; a dedication to beautiful and troubled Mostar. Their no longer forgotten town.
