Merima Ključo & Jelena Milušić open the online edition of the Morgenland Festival 2020 with ‘Project LUME’.
In different languages, Lume has various meanings – the world, life, source of light, illusion, fire, spark, lover, humanity, more than love … – and our Lume is a collection of songs from different parts of the world. The link connecting the songs together is the universal theme of love, in which the notion of Lume manifests itself in each of its manifold meanings. Lume contains 10 love songs from different parts of the world and one cycle of 5 songs (Snoviđenje) composed by Ključo, which is based on Romanian, Croatian, Kosovo and Sephardic traditional pieces. Versatile Jelena’s unique and rare contralto has brilliantly complemented the avant-garde notes of Merima’s concert accordion. The magnetic connection between Ključo and Milušić takes us on a dream-like journey through various worlds of strong, expressive and subtle music.
