About the Event
Lilleby is to be balkanized and you are invited! 🎵🎊💃
Balkanfest is the party you didn't know you had to have. For the occasion, Jossa travels south-east to get inspiration for the evening's menu when the entire Balkan's sevdah queen, Amira Medunjanin, serves a musical evening for great emotions. Amira - Bosnia's Billie Holiday, it is said - learned early sevdah songs from her mother, and has since become one of the foremost performers of this beautiful music. Joining Amira this evening is Bojan Zulfikarpasic from Serbia (piano). Bojan lives in Paris and has received several awards and prizes for his music and practice. Come into the warmth, where an evening in the mysteries of the sevdahlinka allows us to forget snowdrifts and freezing temperatures. Sevdah as a word is difficult to translate, but we can recognize the meaning and feeling these beautiful melodies give - this will be an evening for the big emotions: We are talking about love and longing, heartbreak, desire and falling in love. This will be an atmospheric evening that Jossa hopes you will be able to contribute to!
