full text : Interview Harmonie
"...Serbia (the “there” to the “here,” or vice versa), is foreshadowed by an Eastern European-sounding band made up of winds and accordion. This melody captures the ethos of the film, a wistful, slightly doleful tune that is nonetheless spare.

"...Wherever "Here And There" is - New York or Belgrade – it’s got rhythm. As the credits rise, Lauper's original intense homage soars off the theatrical scrim. Courtesy of an exquisitely talented composer, Dejan Pejovic, "Here And There" swings with soul-filled sounds that flower the passageways en route from high-in-the-sky schemes to realized dreams. Within a back-drop jazz refrain that alternatively wipes out, wallows, and wails, the characters discover their true tempo." - Brooklyn Downtown Star - May 10, 2010 full text : Brooklyn Downtown Star - Here And There
