MSR & Ljiljana Buttler - THE LEGENDS OF LIFE (2005)

Mostar Sevdah Reunion and Ljiljana Buttler
From the smoke filled kafanas (cafes) of the former Yugoslavia, longtime Gypsy music diva Ljiljana Buttler and legendary singer Saban Bajramovic join the preeminent band to emerge from the Balkans since the war, Mostar Sevdah Reunion. The soul stirring improvisatory virtuosity of these singers and the combination of Sevdah and Gypsy songs will move and comfort you. Accordion, clarinet, violin, trumpet and percussion envelop popular songs from the 1960s to warm lamenting Sevdalinkas first introduced to the region some 400 years ago under Ottoman rule. These are mature musicians with the astounding skill to maintain equilibrium between tradition and innovative interpretation.
