I will translate it tommorow, but if you cant wait just put in google trans translatation to Croatian if there isnt bosnian avaiable.
basicly what omar said is that the new album will have 12 or 13 songs, how tey plan to have some holidays in bosnia and how mars volta was a project which lasted 11 years and now he works on new on!!! :o
I: How are you?
O: I'm fine, we just finished our lunch. We are in Holland at the moment.
I: How's the tour going?
O: Very good, this is one of the best tours I've been to.
I: I'm glad you named your band Bosnians Rainbows, tell us how that happened.
O: I think Bosnia is a wonderful place, with wonderful history, and a great place for taking your holidays. The most importantly is that it's a great metaphore. Someone very closed to me, once said, how great it is, how you should never give up, how none situation isn't permanent and that the light will overcome the darkness.
I: ... and there's always hope for change...
O: Yes. And a change is unavoidable, that's important. You will always feel that the change will happen and that the sun will rise sometimes. Also, it's a metaphore about beauty perspective. You never know what people feel until you experience it by yourown, until you walk in their shoes. You never know...
I: Have you ever been in Bosnia?
O: Yes, but only one weekend, in Sarajevo. That's when I found out about Bosnian Rainbows. It's one crazy, but beautiful metaphore. It's the only place where I would like to come again and spend some time. In that part of Europe I spent alot of time, in Slovenia, Croatia... It's a great picture of a unique mind and one great metaphore.
Interviewer ask basic info about the band...
I: How many songs will be on the album?
O: Most likely 12 or 13
I: Will there be songs in Bosnian language?
O: (laugh) That would be amazing. We are trying to plan a vacation in Sarajevo. We are not a tipical band. We hang out while not working also. We go on places which I like, and also which other love too. We want to relax and rest.
I: Do you plan to play here?
O: I would love to. Sometimes I ask my self, why people don't call us. You know how these things go. You set a meeting, discuss a budget and you come. But I would come despite the budget. We always go to same places on tour, and towns become the same. It's not that I'm complaining, I really like what I do, but we're always Japan, Australia, Russia, England, SAD, Mexico. I know some bands which've played in Bosnia, but we haven't neither we had played in India, China etc. I really hope those possibilites will be open one day.
I: Do you really hate playing in the same cities everytime?
O: No, I enjoy it, because there are quite a lot nice places. You have a feeling you know the road. We're lucky for traveling a lot. My friends at home work whole year so they could go somewhere, and we travel for work. Only thing that's a little boring is USA. There can become boring. The places we play are on the coast. We love to play in East, New York, Chicago, Toronto, and then West California too, Portalnd. All the rest seems like it's stucked in the 50's. It's kind of crazy.
I: With band did you enjoyed the most playing this year, TMV/ATDI/BR?
O: It's hard to say. ATDI was cool, because we haven't played since teenage days. TMV is a project which I've been working on for last 11 years now. That phase happened, and now the new one goes - BR. I work on that now. I wouldn't say it's the most happiest phase, but it's something I'm working on and that's what makes me an artist at the moment. But, I'm most excited about BR, though.
I: Last question, any message for BR fans?
O: Please, please, bring us to play for you there! Let us play our music! When we would get an opportunity, we would be so excited.
