For Him and Her is a new studio album by world music diva Amira Medunjanin, available on all streaming services as of today. The album will go on sale on June 24 (CD) while double vinyl is set for release middle of June . For Him and Her is a unique homage to Tomi Zdravković and Silvana Armenulić – 12 of their songs interpreted by Amira Medunjanin simply enchant.
New studio material was recorded in Boston (USA) at the Big BlueSound studio, while some of the instruments were recorded in Belgrade and Mostar (Studio Coda and Mostar Rock School). The album featured eminent musical names: Shyrkhan Agabeyli (bass), Bojan Zulfikarpašić (percussion and Moog Matriarch), Predrag Vasić (guitars and mandolin), Ismail Lumanovski (clarinet), Mustafa Šantić (accordion), Vladimir Ćuković (violins) and Pantelis Stoikos (trumpet). Realized in collaboration with Stars & More and released by Croatia Records, For Him and Her is a discographic gem and certainly one of the world music albums of the year.

The collection For Him and Her – created in the company of exceptional musicians with whom Amira has collaborated throughout her career – also puts forth a private question: “Why is it that we love some singers more than others who perhaps have richer, more colorful, and even more schooled voices?” Amira Medunjanin possesses that miracle in her being. Her singing is an act of celebrating the song, the uncommon ability to swing the pendulum of spiritual excitement in the breast of mortals. When she offers her heart under the spotlight, ecstatic and with clenched fists, when a tear rolls down her cheek between two verses, Amira Medunjanin is honestly and without reserve doing for us the same that Tamut gave to her world. Praying for all of us in the temple of God. – Petar Peca Popović (liner notes)
