Bosnia & Herzegovina: London Sevdah Emotional Issues

London Sevdah performers need “mindset training“: “To put it into context, many people from Bosnia have suffered badly during the war (and the same goes for some of London Sevdah members) and some of the biggest suffering has come in the form of long term (subtle) mental damage. This means that many Bosnian people have lost their ‘mental bearings’ to an extent and are unable to recognise positive facts as much as they previously were able to do (i.e. before war or when they were younger).”
