Back in November Bosnia and Herzegovina broadcaster BHRT announced that its artists for Stockholm would be Fuad Backovic Deen and Dalal Midhat-Talakic, featuring cellist Ana Rucner. But it’s not long until we’ll be able to hear the song that will mark Bosnia and Herzegovina’s return to Eurovision. It will be revealed in a special presentation on February 19.
The three performers will also be joined by a fourth. Rapper and song co-writer Jasmin Fazlic Jala will join the group on stage. The act will collectively be known as Dalal & Deen feat. Ana Rucner & Jala.
Their song will be debuted at a special presentation ceremony at Sarajevo City Hall on 19 February at 20:10 CET.
Rehearsals are already underway for the event, which will be streamed live so Eurofans can also be part of the big reveal. Spokesperson Maja Miralem was looking forward to the event, telling website Klix, “We are pleased that this date is approaching and I hope that we will meet the expectations.”
The song will also be performed live at a special event in Sweden. On February 27, an event will be held in Stockholm to celebrate Bosnia and Herzegovina’s Independence Day. The celebration will feature various high-profile citizens of the Balkan state, including a performance of the country’s song for Stockholm.
Two weeks ago, the first details of the group’s song emerged. The song will have Bosnian lyrics — not English — and the popular singer Zuzi Zu has been involved. At that stage the song title had not been decided, but there was a private shortlist of two names.
There are also plans for a music video, but what form that will take all depends on the budget. It is hoped that the video will feature the natural beauty of Bosnia and Herzegovina.
