On Saturday 19th June 2010, we have been privileged enough to be the guests at DJ Ritu’s BBC Radio London world music program where we have spoken about Sevdah and Sevdalinka as well as played some of the traditional Sevdalinkas during an hour long radio slot.
Mirza joined Ognjen Tvrtkovic in presenting a ‘Sevdalinka masterclass’ with DJ Ritu playing some of the pre-selected tracks that Ognjen and Mirza brought in.
The program was incredibly enjoyable and we have obtained much useful and positive feedback about it.
The event yielded an interesting outcome in so far that DJ Ritu has liked Sevdalinka so much that she would like to make Sevdalinka a part of her regular DJ repertoire, so World of Sevdah is due to re-appear on the program later on in the year with some live performances and more interesting facts about Bosnian musical heritage.
We have managed to save the audio version of the program into an MP3 file which you will be able to download from this web site soon.
