He was born in Bugojno in 1978. and lived in many cities – Zagreb, Sarajevo, London – before his current destination, Zenica, where he lives and works as director of the City Library. He attained diploma in World literature and Library at Sarajevo University. In addition, he collaborates with many media outlets (including BHRT – Bosnian National TV and TV of Federation of Bosnia and Herzegovina), as a composer and screenwriter. His many screenplays were broadcast on BHRT and FTV and his most recent screenplay will be performed at Sarajevo National Theater.

The crown of Haris’s music career is the band BalkanEros Banditos, which he co-founded with French guitarist and producer Samuel Engelmayer and his colleague, professor of music, Aldin Šehić. The band has existed since 2011, and so far has released 3 studio albums, for prominent record labels – Face TV and Croatia Records. In addition, they recorded, in a duet with the famous Turkish clarinetist Husnu Senlendirici, 3 singles for Turkish national television. In 2014, the band was discovered by Australian film director Stella Macdonald who used their music for her movie „My Imaginary Life“ that premiered at Cannes festival the same year.

In the 8 years of active work, BalkanEros Banditos have held many concerts and collaborated with many artists and media outlets. One of their biggest projects was 2013 tour named „Ulicamamo“ – „We are streeting“ where they played pop-up concerts in city centers all over the country. They used this opportunity to connect with local artists in all parts of Bosnia and Herzegovina, but also to portray the word „estrada“ as down to earth, art that touches the rhythm of the street (la strada) and is much closer to people this way. This project had a great impact directly to the people they met, but also to media that was very much interested in covering their journey.

Since 2016 BalkanEros Banditos has been the host of the most watched TV show in B&H for last three years. The show (TV Bingo Show) still airs primetime on FTV every Friday night.
