Božo Vrećo

Bosnian singer Vrećo is one of the leading modern interpreters of sevdalinke, the bittersweet songs of yearning and dashed hopes that form a central thread in the folk traditions of the region. Vrećo wears both male and female clothes and sings songs from a predominantly female point of view (and he has the voice to do it sublimely well), making him somewhat unique in the patriarchal world of Balkan folk.
