A little something from my old country

I dont know if anyone knows, but.....I was born in Europe, on the beautiful mountainous Balkan in what used to be Yugoslavia.....nostalgia hits guys, dont mind me writing this, I feel like crying as I am listening to songs from there right at this moment....

So.....this part of Europe is just full of heart and full of soul, their songs are heartbreaking and alive....now its all in pieces...6 different pieces....My part of the country now is Macedonia. How I miss the mountains, how I miss the music blasting from every window of the buildings, how I miss just having everything I need right next me....

Well...enough of the whining here...I wanted to share a song with you that lately has taken me away:

Hari Mata Hari's representative song for Bosnia at Eurovision :



Zeljko Joksimovic's representative song for Yugoslavia at Eurovision:



They are not brand new, but love the mix of traditional instruments with moderns sounds

That is just so beautiful!! The beginning of the first video somehow reminded me of Lara's Theme from Dr. Zhivago. I know not the same thing but it's what I first thought of.

Thank you Gypsy! :-) After WWII our country was helped a lot by the Russians to re-build it and the whole construction thing looks alike now :-)
