Welcome to another episode of "An Englishman in the Balkans Podcast," where we traverse the rich cultural landscape of the Western Balkans.
In this edition, recorded outside in our garden here in the village of Čardačani, I sit down with the incredibly talented Jelisaveta Gluvić-Wragg, a classically trained violinist, who has embarked on a remarkable musical odyssey that took her abroad and brought her back home.
In this intimate conversation, Jelisaveta shares the transformative experience of studying abroad and how immersing herself in diverse cultural settings shaped her musical sensibilities.
Deciding to return to her homeland, Jelisaveta opens up about the pull of her roots and the sense of responsibility she feels toward her community. She shares her vision of contributing to the flourishing music scene in Bosnia and Herzegovina, fostering artistic growth, and inspiring the next generation of musicians.
You'll also here "village sounds" during the podcast, I hope that makes you smil…
