About Divanhana

Divanhana are a modern sevdah group from Bosnia and Herzegovina. Formed in 2009 by a group of students from the Music Academy in Sarajevo, the band performs traditional music from the Balkans in their new, distinctive arrangements influenced by jazz, pop and classical music.

They especially focus on nurturing and presenting sevdalinka, or sevdah, the urban traditional music of Bosnia and Herzegovina, hugely popular throughout the wider Balkan region. Building on a dedicated and scholarly approach to tradition, they enrich their repertoire with newly-written music inspired by traditional songs.
