Ten years into a uniquely fascinating career, Bosnian musician Damir Imamović continues to forge innovative approaches to the venerable tradition of sevdah. In 2020 he will be embarking on a tour  with a new quartet comprising legendary avant-garde acoustic bassist Greg Cohen (Masada, Tom Waits, Ornette Coleman), one of Turkey’s premium classical soloists, Derya Türkan (Kudsi Ergüner, Erkan Oğur) and violin player Ivana Djurić, member of Damir’s band Sevdah Takht and one of the most prominent soloists in contemporary sevdah. In May the tour will bring them to ALICE, where Damir Imamović also played a mesmerizing concert with his band Sevdah Takht.

The quartet’s repertoire will be based on Damir’s decade-long musical journey. It will include a wealth of original material culled from his acclaimed back catalogue, but will also revisit the sevdah classics. Greg Cohen’s long involvement with Eastern European music, and Derya Türkan’s Turkish musical heritage, which has had a profound influence on the music of the Balkans, should push the boundaries of Damir’s work still further.
