i checked a couple of videos of them on youtube, very good, very promising.
Bosnia (openly one of my all time three fave esc countries) is again touring for what's best in Bosnia to offer. After two years in a row of amazing balkan ballads that put "Molitva" to shame, they went with a surprising fresh and bright entry thanx to Laka, who is probably with Sebastien Tellier and the Turkish group the only "artist" in esc 2008.. Speaking of the Turkish group, that's what Regina reminds me of. That same rock that is not afraid of its origins: a rock that is not boring westernized pop-rock or not a heavy group that's got nothing but noise to offer. I have very high expectations on their entry!

The actual song hasn't been heard yet.  No release date but the act and song name have been confirmed.

I'm not hiding the fact I'm in love with the song..
I keep hearing people calling it lame because it "doesn't go anywhere" as there are no big faster bridges part in the song.. and I keep thinking, WOW, for ONCE we do have a song written FOR esc (unlike France's and Switzerland's) but that decided NOT to follow the esc format and of course the typical fan bashes it

Regina as we know is a rockish band.. they had two options, go very rock and end up like "Deli" from last year (amazing option) but they could also go very Yugoslavia (another great option) and that's what they did.. Can't you tell the 60's Yugoslavia in that song? I can and it's amazing sound.

I love the clip with the red banners and the girls marching, it's very "Socialist" in action, but it works very well with the song.. In the live performance that worked less impressively, they have to work on it. But yes, as usual, I'm in love with the Bosnian song!

Gotta agree with Martial.  It's pleasing that they went down the Yugoslavia 60s route.  It has such a mellow feel to it.  Really nice entry

Absolutely my FAVORITE East European song this year!  :heart: :heart: :heart:

I have loved Regina's music since the first time I got to know it. And I adore the singer's voice.  :hug: Adrian, do you know what is his name?

For sure this is the best from ex-Yugoslavia.  The only problem with this song is that it sounds similar with another one (dunno which one). The vocalist is Davor Ebner. Bistra Voda means Clear Water. It is a very nice song, but we can't compare this with Lejla.  :heart:

A nice subtle and understated performance of a lovely song.
