Two prominent personalities of Balkan based world music have come together to form a duo. Jelena Popržan - in her own words "Viennese from Vojvodina" - has shown musical versatility. She combines voice experiments, contemporary art music, pop and chansons, political songs and Balkan folk to create an idiosyncratic profile, which has inspired not only the Austrian scene. Damir Imamović from Sarajevo is one of those rare strokes of luck of music researcher, connoisseur and innovator in personal union. With their introspective duo program, the two reflect on their common roots, but let their plants grow from Sevdah to Aznavour in many, even new, directions.
