We continue the National Final Reminder with something from Bosnia & Herzegovina.

Bosnia & Herzegovina held a national final in order to select its 1999 entry. Seventeen entries competed in the live final.

The song “Starac I More” was one of the 17 entries of the national final by Hari Mata Hari. At the end, the song placed 1st but disqualified because it had been sold in 1997 in a Finnish artist (more here). The song is composed by Fahrudin Pecikoza and Hari Varešanović.
