An educational film by Professor Catharina Raudvere, Copenhagen, and Dr Zilka Spahić-Šiljak, Sarajevo.
This film presents some Bosnian Muslim women’s commitments as ritual leaders and their vocal performances. Much of what you will see is specific for Sarajevo in terms of the style of singing, outfits and ways of socializing. These rituals have been performed in the city for centuries and belong to the Muslim history of South-Eastern Europe. Sufi rituals and ways of devotion have influenced how Islam has been practised in the region over the centuries.
With formal or informal education, the bulas of Sarajevo have been in charge of the structure of mevlud and tevhid ceremonies for generations. Being familiar with the Quran and the literature that praises the Prophet, these women have the knowledge and authority to compose the framework of a gathering. Each mevlud and tevhid has its individual character where verses from the Quran, prayers, blessings and poems are to be chosen in interaction with the family or organizer, in accordance with the nature of the occasion.
Today young bulas learn through participating when they receive ritual assignments from the experienced bulas. In this way they learn to relate to the Ottoman legacy of the mevlud tradition. By connecting that legacy with the lives of modern women, they make it relevant to the present time.
