Divanhana performs traditional music with modern arrangements, which are the result of a fusion of jazz, pop and classical music from the 20th century.
Divanhana’s intention is to present not only the urban traditional music from Bosnia and Herzegovina but also the traditional music from other Balkan countries, with a particular attention to the so-called “sevdalinka”.
The band was founded at the beginning of 2009 by a group of young students from the Sarajevo Music Academy and their debut on the Bosnian and Herzegovinian music scene was in October that year. After the successful experience with their debut album, the band started working on Balkan traditional music. In the beginning of September 2011, together with a young artist from Sarajevo, Leila Ćatić, Divanhana started preparing their new album. They keep on experimenting new arrangements and fusion of different music styles.
