The Bosnian-Herzegovinian Sevdalinka artist Božo Vrećo will give a concert on 24 February in the Basilica of the Sacred Heart in Brussels (The National Basilica of the Sacred Heart), according to Klix.ba.

Sevdalinka is a song of enormously high poetic, musical and historical value.

It has been constantly renewed, interpreted, continues to this day and will continue to do so. She lives, that is important for UNESCO, on whose list she should rightly be included.
