Kardeş (Balkan Region Release)

After the very successful Zukva album, published in the end of 2015, and a two-year long regional and European tour, which included more than 120 concerts, Bosnian sevdah band Divanhana releases their new studio album, symbolically named Kardeş.

Despite their overloaded concert schedule, this popular band, together with their guest, the popular Turkish actress and singer, Suzan Kardeş, managed to finish their fourth music album. It had been recorded during the February of 2017, at the SMS studio, Music production of Bosnia and Herzegovina, and later was produced at Long Play studio in Sarajevo, by the band’s long time associate, Borijan Milošević.

Album Kardeş is consisted of ten songs, and it brings a completely new sound of Divanhana, intertwined with oriental tones of Turkish clarinetist Yunus Emre Elleka, virtuous guitar sounds of two guitarists from Tuzla, Sanel Redžć and Emir Hot, as well as the energetic sounds of Macedonian trumpeters led by the conductor Džambo Agušev.

Kafu mi draga ispeci is the first single which announced the album, followed by Anterija, Findikli Bizim Yolumuz, Fikrimin Ince Gulu or Anadolka, exactly the songs that originate  from Bosnian and Turkish music tradition, that have travelled and communicated for centuries, kissed and hugged, created new love, happiness and sadness, spreading the musical brotherhood and sisterhood.

Without any pretensions to determine, what is the spring and what is the mouth, what flows in, and what makes the river bigger, Suzan & Divanhana let themselves go with a musical flow as brothers and sisters, as “kardeş” to blow us away with pure river of sevdah.
