In twelve selected songs, Amira Medunjanin, world music diva, dedicates her deep personal respect for Toma Zdravković and Silvana Armenulić, colossal figures of Yugoslavian popular music and the last true representatives of kafanska muzika (coffee-house music).
“The collection For Him and Her – created in the company of exceptional musicians with whom Amira has collaborated throughout her career – also puts forth a private question: “Why is it that we love some singers more than others who perhaps have richer, more colorful, and even more schooled voices?” Amira Medunjanin possesses that miracle in her being. Her singing is an act of celebrating the song, the uncommon ability to swing the pendulum of spiritual excitement in the breast of mortals. When she offers her heart under the spotlight, ecstatic and with clenched fists, when a tear rolls down her cheek between two verses, Amira Medunjanin is honestly and without reserve doing for us the same that Tamut gave to her world. Praying for all of us in the temple of God”, says music journalist Petar Peca Popović in the liner notes of upcoming release.
“For Him and Her” will be available on streaming 12th of June, and also on CD (24th of June) and double vinyl (in July).
