Good luck concert in Bosnia

by Richard West-Soley 63 views

There is to be a special open air concert in Mostar to wish this year's entry for Bosnia and Herzegovina Sretno (Good luck!) before the Bosnian delegation leaves for Athens.

Sretno, Lejla! will be held on Saturday 29th April in Mostar's Spanish Square. The concert itself is a joint production between the companies RTV Mostar, NTV Hayat, Croatia's Oscar C and Mre�a Plus, and will be broadcast throughout the region via their channels. Many special guests are rumoured to be attending, along with the band Hari Mata Hari itself, with composer and former participant for Serbia and Montenegro, �eljko Joksimović.

The concert is part of a busy promotional schedule around the region which has already seen Hari Mata Hari perform in the Kosovar capital Prishtina and FYR Macedonia's Skopje this week.

The venue, Mostar, is the unofficial capital of the Herzegovina region, and featured as the beautiful backdrop to the promotional video for Lejla. The song will be performed at the qualifier round in Athens, and with a little sretno, perhaps at the international final on 20th May.
