U Stambolu


A poignant, soulful, song of grieving from the Bosnian “sevdalinka” tradition arranged in 2 part harmony. Sevdanlina songs are urban Muslim songs from the time of the Ottoman occupation.
Comes with pronunciation guide.

In Istambul on the Bosphorus a pasha lay dying. Prayers were called out for him from the minarets. He cried as he gave each of his faithful servants a woman from his harem. When his wife heard the news that he had passed to the next world, she died of love for him.
