Tijana Bogićević, who represented Serbia at 2017 Eurovision Song Contest and Damir Kedžo, who would have represented Croatia in the contest last year, have joined forced for a new song titled “Hram”. It is a song about how powerful the love is.
Two former Eurovison artists, Tijana Bogićević and Damir Kedžo, released yesterday a new song titled Hram, which translates to Temple. This is their first collaboration ever and the woman, who stands behind it, is well-known Serbian songwriter Aleksandra Milutinović. In the past, Aleksandra wrote many songs that entered the Serbian national selection, Beovizija. Furthermore, she penned the song Rijeka Bez Imena which represented Bosnia and Herzegovina in the Eurovision Song Contest back in 2007.
Hram is a contemporary pop song that worships the power of love. Love is seen as a temple – a place of safety that you keep and protect when you finally find it. Love is a source of motivation, and it gives meaning to our lives.
