JAZZ OF FOUR CONTINENTS
Hailing from Sarajevo, a city historically described as a crossroads between the East and the West, Divanhana presents sparkling new arrangements of urban traditional music from Bosnia and Herzegovina, with a particular emphasis on the soulful sounds of sevdalinka, the musical vehicle for the expression of amorous longing and melancholy, passion and joy, with his roots in the days of the Ottoman Empire. The band was formed in 2009 by a group of students of Sarajevo Music Academy who open up the Sephardic and Oriental elements of sevdalinka to a new jazz sensibility, while the clear tones of singer Leila Catić deftly span the emotions between heartache and playfulness.
