I only know one traditional type of music in Bosnia. It is call Sevdalinka. Normally people do not listen to folk music any more, but in Sarajevo, it has become a trend to listen to traditional music according to one of my co-workers. This phenomenon really confuses me as I see young people (teenagers) listen and hum the folk tunes. I asked a few kids for the reasons and here are why:  (i am not fully satifisfied)

  • Because it is our music
  • The melody and text are good
  • ….must be more..
