BOŽO VREĆO & BAND LIVE IN AUSTRALIA
With his eyeliner, luxuriantly long hair, beard, tattoos and fabulous dresses, Božo Vrećo explores the masculine and feminine. His emotive tenor is just as ambiguous, bringing a delicacy to the intense melancholy of traditional Bosnian sevdalinka folk music.
Sevdalinka has found new popularity in the Balkans since war devastated the region in the 1990s. After his SOLD OUT appearances at Castlemaine Festival and Ten Days on The Island Festival in 2018 Vrećo will be returning to Australia this time performing with his world-renowned band, expressing the pathos, melancholy and yearning that the ancient genre is known for.
In 2018 Božo Vrećo released his fifth album, Melek to global acclaim. His music has been used in documentaries, ballet and theatrical performances around the world.
