Hari Mata Hari will represent Bosnia & Herzegovina at the 2006 Eurovision Song Contest in Athens, Greece. PBSBiH will announce that in a press conference, scheduled to start now. �eljko Joksimović, who represented Serbia & Montenegro in 2004 with Lane moje, composes and produces the song, Fahrudin Pecikoza (lyricist to the very first Bosnian Eurovision entry Sva bol svijeta) and Dejan Ivanović will take care of the lyrics.
The group Hari Mata Hari, with leadsinger Hari Vare�anovic (picture), won the Bosnian national final for the Eurovision Song Contest in 1999 with the song Starac i more. The song was however disqualified as it was already recorded by the Finnish singer Janne Hurme (in Finnish) as Sydänveri. Dino Merlin & Beatrice, who finished second in the Bosnian national final, went to Jerusalem instead with their song Putnici.
Next to Hari Vare�anović, the group consists of Izo Kolečić, Karlo Martinović and Nihad Voloder.
More news about the 2006 representative of Bosnia & Herzegvina can be expected later today.
