Participant(s): Hari Mata Hari Song: Lejla Writer(s): Fahrudin Pecikoza & Dejan Ivanovic Composer(s): Željko Joksimovic
Bosnia & Herzegovina is taking part since 1993. Recently the country has tried to send something new: good and witty songs which are outstanding in a way. Gone are the years of depression. Bosnia & Herzegovina is now popular for it's surprising fresh entries like "In the disco" and "Call me". They are really trying the to give the best for these important three minutes on stage. That's why this year's singer Hajrudin Varešanovic is chosen by the Bosnian television internally for Athens. He's is a great and popular singer known as "Nightingale of Sarajevo" and has gained valuable stage- and concert experiences with his band Hari Mata Hari. The composer and singer Željko Joksimovic has crowned the neighbour country Serbia & Montenegro with success with the wonderful and dreamy ballad "Lane Moje" in 2004 and came second! We can expect similar music this year: a dreamy and melancholic song called "Lejla". So we are having another highlight this year in Athens! Just gorgious.
