This opera also represents the merge of cultural differences and similarities. As the composer and author of the text of this opera said himself, the opera is an unusual but functional merge of modern music and traditional B&H ”sevdah” music. The guiding theme of the opera is the traditional song entitled ”Kad ja pođoh aman”.
