It began with a meticulous studio production of Survival. The musical expression and character of the work brought together these fantastic musicians of different backgrounds, who worked for more than two years to present a live version of Survival and create new material from Sevdah Linke for the live recording in Berlin's Tempodrom.

"Survival" is a musical project, in which different musical styles combine in a symphony, a crossover of classic, rock, ambient, ethno and world music. Bosnia's multiinstrumentalist, composer and producer Reuf Sipović has created with "survival" a work with a timeless sound and unique artistic expression.
The complex sound painting of "Survival" is not easy to classify. The style of this work gives a very intense musical experience. The variety of sounds from different backgrounds, the instrumentation, the driving flowing rhythms that give an oriental-style and atmosphere, to create an image of a multicultural world. Rarely is a symbiosis of different music styles so well presented as in this production. Composed, arranged, all instruments performed, mixed, mastered & produced by Reuf Sipović.
"My original intention was for the album Survival to speak for itself, independent of the place, time and circumstances leading up to its development. It was supposed to be a timeless story that provided room for discovery and identification with personal quests for survival. I wanted to give listeners the freedom to create independently or with the help of the title of each of the compositions their own visions and stories.
But then I realized that my work would lose its meaning without its story, because it is not only my story"...
