Mary Sherhart & Omer Pobrić “Srce Puno Bosne”
from America I Sevdah (Institut Sevdaha 2005) —Mary Sherhart is an American from the West Oast who feel in love with music and went to Bosnia to learn it. She did so well and was so loved by the Bosnians that she was on TV and cut this CD. This song was composed for her by the late Omer Pobric.
Safet Isović “Jablani se povijaju”
from Zapisano U Vremenu - Safet Isović/disc 1 (RTS/PCP 2009) —one Bosnian now living here in St. Louis described Savet Isović as "the voice of the century". The smooth, high tenor, ability to ornament melodies and often understated consonants are all examples of the style that he exemplifies.
Zora Dubljević “Moj Dragane, Sunce za Oblakom”
from Zora Dubljević uz narodni ansambl Ismeta Alajbegović (Jugoton (45rpm disc)) —This was recorded in the 1960s. I got the CD on Ebay , having been alerted by a listener to this show, Jim Nelson.
narodni ansambl ismeta Alajbegović “Kićino Kolo”
from Zora Dubljević uz narodni ansambl Ismeta Alajbegović (Jugoton (45rpm disc)) —a typical old style Kolo (line dance) in 8/bar phrases, often alternating modes.
Meho Puzić uz narodni ansambl Ismeta Alajbegovića-Šerbe i Jovice Petkovića “Mehmeda Majka Budila”
from Bosanske pjesma pjeva Meho Puzić (Jugoton (45rpm disc)) —One of the classic songs.
Radmila Jagodić i Zaim Imamović “Da Sam Nešto, Prelijepa Čamka (She is too beautiful to be lonely)”
from Music of Yugoslavia - Bosnia (Monitor (LP)) —this old Monitor LP was a real eye/opener for those of us in the west who had never heard this style before. Monitor had licensed the music from Jugoton in Yugoslavia. I wish someone would clean up the tapes and re-issue it.
