BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA : Regina – Bistra Voda
It’s been a heck of a long time coming for four piece Bosnia & Herzevoginan rock outfit Regina. But after 19 years as a successful chart act based in Sarajevo, the band, who reportedly take inspiration from U2, are off to the Eurovision Song Contest after winning their country’s selection at the beginning of the year. They’ll take with them this song called ‘Bistra Voda’ which translates as ‘Clear Water’, which is not so much rock as folk-pOp. The video is most striking.
