Saturday 27 May 2023, 1pm
Llwyfan Cymru – Wales Stage
Join novelist Aleksandar Hemon and musician Damir Imamović for an exciting cross-genre collaboration. Widely acclaimed as a masterpiece, Hemon’s latest novel The World and All That It Holds is an engrossing, moving epic taking readers from Sarajevo to Shanghai and across a century of tumultuous history. He is joined by fellow Sarajevan Damir Imamović, celebrated Sevdah artist (Sevdah is a form of ‘Bosnian blues’; it literally means ‘beautiful sadness’) who will perform from his new Smithsonian Folkways album, inspired by and forming a rich soundtrack to The World and All That It Holds. An unmissable hour of words and music.
