BHRT, the national broadcaster of Bosnia and Herzegovina have just announced their decision to send popular rock Regina to represent the country in the 2009 Eurovision Song Contest with the song Bistra voda.

After a soulful ballad in 2007, an eccentric act in 2008, Bosnia and Herzegovina, known for their diverse and daring entries in the Eurovision Song Contest, are sending rock with Regina to Moscow. The song is called Bistra voda (Clear water) and is composed by Aleksandar Covic. It will be presented on a BHRT live show on 1st March.

The band, already spanning two decades, was created in 1990 by Aco, Bojan and Denis and later joined by lead singer Davor Ebner. Since then, they have released numerous albums and have achieved rock stardom in all ex Yugoslav countries. The band broke up during the civil war in Yugoslavia to reunite in the original lineup in 2006 when they released Sve mogu ja, their latest album to date.

Thanks to Johnny Logan and Hold me now I fell in love with the Eurovision Song Contest, a love that's been going strong ever since with undiminished passion. My first memories date back to 1977 and the lyrics of Rock bottom, Dschinghis Khan and A ba ni bi are still engraved in my brain.

I joined esctoday.com in 2006 as a junior editor after being invited by Barry Viniker, I soon became Senior Editor and during the 2007 contest in Helsinki I was appointed Head of Communications. Today I hold the post of Head of Human Resources and I am proud to be working with the best editorial team in the world.
