Predstava S NOGU* (*Sredstvo za protiv jugonostalgije i jugofobije) prvi je cjelovečernji tematski solo show jednog regionalnog stand-up komičara. Nastala je 2011. godine za potrebe turneje koja je bila obuhvatila Hrvatsku, Sloveniju, Bosnu i Hercegovinu, Srbiju i Crnu Goru. U međuvremenu je ova predstava posjetila i Makedoniju i Kosovo, ali i SAD, Kanadu, Australiju, skandinavske zemlje, Veliku Britaniju, Češku, Austriju itd. 

To je priča o nama danas. Nama, koji smo nastavili svoje živote tu – na ovim “našim prostorima”, u “regiji” ili “regionu”, Zapadnom Balkanu, u bivšoj Jugoslaviji… uglavnom – o nama sada i tu. Iako razdvojeni, neka od svakodnevnih iskustava su gotovo identična, dok su neka takva kao da su jedni na Zemlji, drugi na Mjesecu, a treći na Marsu… itakodalje sve do nepriznatog Plutona.

- 'Ko je blesaviji, Amerikanci ili Englezi…ili Japanci? Ili mi.

- Koja je razlika između Bosanke i Hercegovca u krevetu ili u novčaniku?

- Zašto riječ ‘čimbenik’ zbunjuje Srbina?

- Šta se zapravo dogodi kada Hrvati popizde na Slovence?

- Jesu li Kosovari muzikalniji od ostalih i zašto Crnogorac još ne spava…?

- A, gdje je nestalo makedonsko devojče…?

Još više pitanja i još manje odgovora dobit ćete u ovom druženju s Pedjom u trajanju od skoro dva sata. Uz sve to ćemo dodati malo politike, i ono malo tzv. domaće ekonomije, ponešto estrade i (nikada dovoljno!) sexa… i imate – S NOGU!

Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Brussels (Basilica of Koekelberg)


 The Best Artistic Event that Friday in Brussels

 From the Heart of the South-East to the Heart of Western Europe

Božo Vrećo, artist and performer of sevdah music coming from Bosnia, brings his magic to the city of Brussels for an exclusive concert on the 24th of February 2017. Božo Vrećo is known for his ethereal voice, performances which blend whimsy with the divine, and his unique look, on the crossroads between the masculine and the feminine.

 

He will perform in a setting which yields itself for the otherworldly elements present in the sevdah music: the Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Brussels, commonly called the Basilica of Koekelberg.

The Basilica of Koekelberg is one of the largest churches in the world, as well as the largest building in the Art Deco style in the world, incorporating the elements of the Byzantine Revival architecture.

Its sophisticated and majestic style offers the perfect atmosphere of mystery and allows to immerse the spectators in the sevdah of Božo Vrećo.

 Basilica is less than 90 minutes by high-speed train from Amsterdam, Paris and/or London

(Before the concert, Damir Imamovic provides handy listening aids by explaining and performing excerpts from the Sevdah genre)

 

After a successful solo project and a Trio of his own, Bosnian Sevdah musician Damir Imamović (b. 1978, Sarajevo, Bosnia and Herzegovina) makes a new turn with his new band named: Damir Imamović Sevdah Takht.

“Takht” used to be a name for small, chamber groups which travelled throughout the Mediterenean and played traditional music of the region. The word “takht” is of a Persian origin and denotes a “stage”, “throne”, “plank” and similar. In Bosnian/Croatian/Serbian it was preserved idiomatically as “tahta” which denotes a “plank”, “tahtali” which means “flat” and associates a so-called “flat song/singing” – one of the most important origins of the today’s Sevdah music genre.

Damir Imamović Sevdah Takht calls upon a tradition of bands that cross the borders of actual genres and learn from different traditions. After two very successful CDs with his own Damir Imamović Trio and a couple of CDs solo, with this new band Imamović steps in a direction of understanding sevdah as a genre based on a continuous learning and research. Alongside Imamović, Sevdah Takht are:
