Bosnia’s most popular band, Dubioza Kolektiv, is inviting its audience to “stay connected and disinfected” during a weekly “Quarantine Show” online to cheer up fans locked in their homes due to the coronavirus.
Bosnia-Herzegovina, like most countries in Europe, has introduced a lockdown in an attempt to halt the spread of the novel coronavirus which has so far infected close to 800 people and caused 30 deaths in the Balkan country.
Each Monday at 8:30 p.m. (18:30 GMT), tens of thousands of people watch the dub rock group perform online, with the musicians playing from their homes in three different countries.
“The internet has remained the only way for us to communicate and play music,” Dubioza Kolektiv keyboardist Brano Jakupovic told Reuters speaking via Skype from his home in Sarajevo.
“It is important that people enjoy the concert but also that they communicate via chats, write to each other and feel for the moment the same way as they felt before corona,” Jakupovic said.
The musicians play from their homes in Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia and Slovenia but their act is perfectly synchronized.
Jakupovic says that about 30,000-40,000 fans from dozens of countries worldwide watch the concert live online. “It’s very exciting, and it all happens while playing from our own bedrooms,” he said, laughing.
Dubioza Kolektiv is known for its eclectic musical style and socially and politically engaged lyrics sung in Bosnian and English.
