Welcome to Sevdah North America, Inc. (SNA)

Sevdah North America, Inc. (SNA) is an all-volunteer educational organization formed in 2007 to preserve, promote, and document sevdah, the traditional urban music of town centers of old Bosnia and Herzegovina. SNA's events and projects range from small community events to major performances, recordings, and educational events. A special effort is made to create inter-generational activities that involve under-served communities and artists, recognizing that sevdah creates a musical bridge between cultures and offers a bottomless well of healing.
