Sabahudin Kurt (born 18 July 1935) is a Bosnian folk and pop singer. Kurt represented Yugoslavia in Copenhagen in the Eurovision Song Contest 1964 with the entry Život je sklopio krug (English: Life Has Come Full Circle). He finished in thirteenth place with the dreaded nul points.[1]

Kurt recorded his first song "Dim u tvojim očima" (English: Smoke in Your Eyes) in 1954.[2]

Retirement[edit]

After suffering a heart attack and having triple-bypass surgery in 2007, Kurt retired from music and decided to live out the rest of his life in the Bosnian countryside. He moved to upper upper Vlakovo village in the Ilidža suburb of Sarajevo.[3] He was again hospitalized 29 August 2014 due to "cardiovascular problems".[4]

Kurt was among the guests honoring Serbian composer Kornelije Kovač on 25 November 2012 for the 50th anniversary of Kovač's professional career.[5][6]
