Glitterbeat presents the video for Damir Imamovic’s Sevdah Takht’s song ‘Sarajevo’ from their upcoming album ‘Dvojka’. The song ‘Sarajevo’ is about ‘the other Sarajevo’, the fading and forgotten generations of misfits and radicals that quietly underpinned the cultural and political life of the Bosnian capital.
At the foot of the mountain / Sarajevo nests, of stories a fountain / In it rests. Folk of yester times / Left their lasting marks / some a mark, some a devil’s furrow / But looking back, who can know / Who did well, who did not / And which wars were fought / Who a bitter tear shed / As flute and horn their tune led.
At the foot of the mountain / Sarajevo nests, of stories a fountain / Of old songs a treasure pot / Of love that poems know not / Forever silent its children will remain / With sadness their lives underlain / They will be taught venom and hate / Dreaming about a distant, happy fate / At home, they will fear their shadow / But looking back, who can know.
Glitterbeat will release the album ‘Dvojka’ on April 29th, 2016.
