Kemal Monteno (17 September 1948 – 21 January 2015) was a Bosnian singer-songwriter. His career stretched back to the 1960s. He recorded his first song "Lidija" in 1967 and has enjoyed a prosperous career in the former Yugoslavia. He is perhaps best known for "Sarajevo ljubavi moja", a tribute to his home town.[1]

Monteno died at a Zagreb hospital of pneumonia and sepsis[2] on 21 January 2015 due to complications after the kidney transplant.[3] He was 66 years old.[4][5]
