BHRT invited Regina group for Vienna
SARAJEVO, BOSNIA & HERZEGOVINA – Group Regina represented Bosnia & Herzegovina five years ago in Moscow and ended up 9th. We did report that BHRT, country’s national broadcaster asked Hari Varešanović to represent them once again, but they’ve expected that he also contributes with some money.
But now Aleksandar Čović has confirmed that there were talks with his band. He said that if they have a song at least as good as Bistra Voda was, that they will accept the invitation. He also said that no money contribution was asked from him and his band. Does this mean that another Balkan state has made it’s choice. What do you have to say about it?
