Drawing on Bosnian-Herzegovinian Sevdah and Sephardic Jewish songs, as well as folkloric myths and legends, SARAY Iluminado takes you through the Balkans and to the North-Eastern tips of the Mediterranean, where you meet fantastical, archaic characters, such as: the Mermaid-Temptress, The Whispering Brook, the Weeping Trees, the Enchanted Nightingale and many more.
