Kemal Monteno (born 17 September 1948) is a popular Bosnian singer-songwriter.

Biography[edit]

He was born in Sarajevo to an Italian father and a Bosniak mother. He recorded his first song "Lidija" in 1967 and has enjoyed a prosperous career in the former Yugoslavia. He is perhaps best known for "Sarajevo ljubavi moja", a tribute to his home town.[1]

Many of his songs have also been performed by others. For instance, "Bacila je sve niz rijeku" was a hit not only for him, but for Toše Proeski, Crvena Jabuka and Indexi. Similarly, others had success performing "Nekako s proljeća" and "Nije htjela".
