Let’s enjoy this video of some Bosnian folk singing some Bosnian folk.
The Balkan nation now known as Bosnia and Herzegovina had been home to primarily peaceful populations of Bosniaks, Serbs and Croats for centuries before the 1992 question of whether the land would become independent, which a majority of Bosniaks and Croats desired, or remain part of Yugoslavia, a move favored by most Serbs, caused it to shatter. The country is still healing, and today two essentially autonomous entities compose it — the Republika Srpska and the Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina. All Around This World celebrates music as a way of uniting people even when almost everything else tears them apart. Can’t we all enjoy this Balkan folk song from Bosnia and find some way to get along…?
