Ivan Jelić Sevdah

EthnoRemake by Ivan Jelić

After the last year, when he presented his project “EthnoRemake” to the Zagreb audience, young academic singer Ivan Jelić, has fulfilled a small hall Lisinski for his concert held on November 14th. Ubiquitous lovers of “Sevdah” and Ethno songs enjoyed the vocal interpretation of this young singer.

As guests, beside from orchestra, Ivan’s friends like Sandra Bagarić, Darko Domitrović, Ana Rucner and female klapa (traditional a cappella singing in Dalmatia, Croatia) Kolapjanke make this night even more magical. The biggest treat for the audience was the world’s virtuoso Edin Karamazov who played the song “Što te nema” and “Samo moru virujem.”

Since the small hall Lisinski became too small for all those who love Macedonian melodies and Ethno from numerous Croatian regions, the next time you can expect Ivan in a much larger space.

Ivan Jelić Sevdah

Combination of Sevdah and Klapa is most certainly an unseen sensation!

Sevdah, affectionately called Bosnian „blues“, performed by one Dalmatian klapa (a form of traditional a cappella singing in Dalmatia) is not something common in the music world.

We decided to give a chance to this combination that goes along with the program #SevdahuSofri every Thursday, which was devised by Art Hill in cooperation with the restaurant Sofra. The young tenor Ivan Jelić who we exclusively represent became the first association to sevdah among the citizens of Zagreb who like to have fun while eating delicious Bosnian food. It was Ivan who decided to host his friends from klapa Stine and also show what Bosnians and Dalmatians have in common.

Both sevdah and traditional music from Dalmatia have proved to touch the soul. The combination of these two non-joinable musical genres can be called marine „blues“.

If you would like to find out what marine „blues“ sounds like, you can check it out this Thursday, on February 25th from 8 p.m. within the program #SevdahuSofri in the Bosnian restaurant Sofra in the shopping center Point.
