Muhamed Kocan


Muhamed Kocan began singing sevdalinke in his native Karlovac, Croatia, at the age of seven.  His home was filled with the beautiful voice of his mother who instilled in him an enduring love of sevdah and music of all kinds.  Mr. Kocan won numerous first place awards throughout former Yugoslavia where he appeared with many renowned artists including Halid Beslic, Hanka Paldum and Serif Konjic.  In the US, Mr. Kocan was one of 7 finalists in the “Stars of Bostel” competition, appeared in the 2009 St Louis Sevdah Days Festival, and serves on the board of Sevdah North America.  He has a unique way of communicating his love for sevdah, which makes him a special favorite among audiences.
