Selma Bajrami (born 4 July 1980) is a Bosnian pop-folk singer. Her professional music career began when she was a teenager with the release of her first studio album When There Are No More Tears... in 1998. Since, she has become one of the regions leading pop stars with multiple hits and eight albums. Bajrami is currently married and living in Vienna, Austria.

Early life[edit]

Bajrami released her debut album When There Are No More Tears... (1998) while still a teenager.

Bajrami was born in the eastern Bosnian city Tuzla and grew up in the nearby village of Mramor. Her father Fadil (born 1957) is a Kosovo Albanian who moved to Bosnia in 1965 from the town of Đakovica in southwestern Kosovo, while her mother Enisa (born 1960) is a Bosniak from Tuzla. Selma has a sister Fahira (born 1977) and brother Enis (born 1984).[1]

Bajrami and her family spent the entirety of the war in Bosnia and Herzegovina between 1992 and 1995 in the United Nations "safe area" city of Tuzla, during which Bajrami first began singing in kafanas.

Career[edit]

Bajrami's sixth album, The Island of Sorrow (2007) saw her adding club-oriented music to her pop-folk style.

In the beginning of her professional career, she was a member of a music group called If, which she later left.

Her first solo studio album, When There Are No More Tears..., was released in 1998 through the record label Nimfa Sound.[2][3] The album was recorded in Belgrade and was, for the most part, written and composed by Milić Vukašinović.[4]

Bajrami's second album You've Killed Love, You Scum (1999), was produced by Mića Nikolić.[5] Her third album Revolution was released in 2001 was produced by Dejan Abadić and took on a different sound from her previous albums.[6]

Woman from the Balkans[7] (2002) was her fourth album. With multiple hit songs, Selma gained even greater popularity than before. The song "Žena sirena" (English: Siren) became Selma's nickname.

The songwriters of her fifth album, What a Body Selma Has (2004), included Dragan Brajović Braja, Dragiša Baša and Nanin from Tuzla.[8] This album was the second one produced under Dejan Abadić.[9]

Her sixth album, The Island of Sorrow (2007) was her first of two consecutive projects with the record label Grand Production.[10]

Bajrami's seventh album was called The Law of Fate, released in May 2010.[11] The lead singles "Đavolica" and "Farmerice was released in summer 2009. The music video was filmed at a nightclub in Tuzla and premiered 24 December 2009.[12]

Bajrami began work on her eighth studio album in 2012. The lead single "James Dean" premiered in December of that year. It was followed by "Nisam ti oprostila", "Moje milo", "Tijelo bez duše" and "Samo tvoje oči".[13][14][15] The full album, Selma Bajrami was released 23 July 2014 through Hayat Production and City Records.[16][17][18]

Personal life[edit]

Bajrami met her first husband Zoran Vučković, a Bosnian Serb from Sarajevo, in March 2003 in the Croatian city of Makarska, where they married six months later.[19][20] They divorced in February 2004.[21]

Selma met her second husband, a Bosnian man named Mujo Musić in July 2011, during a performance of hers on Modrac Lake by Lukavac.[22] They were wed on 22 December 2011 in front of 100 guests at the hotel Tuzla in the same city, having been engaged a month.[23] Bajrami moved with her second husband to his home in Vienna, Austria. The couple filed for divorce in October 2014.[24]

Bajrami was about two months pregnant on her wedding day and although she had a birth due date of 4 July 2012,[25][26] her 32nd birthday, she gave birth via caesarean section[27] to a baby boy named Daris seven days later than expected on 11 July 2012 in Vienna.[28][29][30][31]

Bajrami did not celebrate her son's first birthday in 2013 as he was born on the anniversary of the Srebrenica Genocide. She has stated that she will never celebrate his birthday out of respect for the victims.[32] On 28 February 2010, Bajrami was attending a friends birthday party in Belgrade, when she was attacked and assaulted by a drunk man.[33][34][35] She was treated in a hospital and sued her assailant.[36] Earlier, Bajrami denied news in September 2008 that she had been attacked by a schizophrenic man with a chainsaw in a nightclub near Srebrenik.[37][38]
