Welcome to harmonia mundi, United Kingdom store
Although the songs on Zumra are beautiful examples of the standard repertoire of Bosnia's highly complex musical culture, Amira and Merima Kljuco's interpretations are far from standard. The title of the CD translates as 'emerald,' but the term can also be used to denote something that deviates from the norm. The music here is simultaneously original and contemporary. Contemporary not merely in its use of techniques, but also in its approach of the songs from a different perspective. Both with arrangement as well as with interpretation, a new dimension to a traditional song is created. Elements that are hidden in underlying layers are brought to the surface. Amira and Kljuco look at these traditional songs in a new light, and in so doing, 'rediscover' them and present them to us as the true gems they are.
