"Sevdah by Damir Imamović is the first book about sevdah that brings together musical, poetic, cultural, historical and popular tendencies in the development of this genre, spanning three centuries of its documented past. This is, at the same time, the first book about sevdah written by a distinguished performer and author of sevdalinkas. It also shows to what extent its author's interventions in sevdah are based on his in-depth knowledge of history and aesthetics of this extraordinary art form."
