Namik Kabil

The story of multiethnic Sarajevo today sounds like an ironic and sad stereotype because it is a retroactive referral to Sarajevo’s previous multi ethnicity which was heavily devastated during the war. Still, even in today’s Sarajevo there are islands of different thinking. One such island is the Pontanima choir, a bridge of souls, which operates at the Franciscan St. Anthony’s Church in Bistrik.
