France Marolt ens., Ljubljana “Svatovska polka”
from Anthology of Folklore Music volume 3 - Croatia and Slovenia (Syncoop/Folkraft 1998) —this show will start a group of shows built to showcase the music of the former Yugoslav republics, all now independent. Slovenia is the most northwestern and "Austrian" of them, as is demonstarted by this polka in typical style.
France Marolt ens., Ljubljana “Da hora ta Caninaua/Ko uo na Kilo si dosei”
from Anthology of Folklore Music volume 3 - Croatia and Slovenia (Syncoop/Folkraft 1998)
(group from Rezija valley) “Ta Črni Patök”
from Rezijanke (RTB (LP)) —This music actually comes from the Resia valley of Northeastern Italy, where the Slovenian minority lives. The dance is for couples. The high melody is done with the dancers turning in place, the low melody has the dancers exchanging place.
Bordunske Citre ens. of Genterovci “Čardaš”
from Der Bleiche Mond / Bledi Mesec (Trikont 1991) —village citra bands are a Hungarian thing for the most part, but here it is in a Slovenian village just across the border. Croatian music from next to the Hungarian border has a similar sound, as the next several selections show.
Stjepan Večković (gajde) “Svirka Na Gajdama”
from Kolo Igra, Tamburica Svira Vol. 2 (Slavonija, Baranja & Bačka) (Best 1999) —this begins a set of tunes for gajde (bagpipe), either solo (for poor villages) or in an ensemble. This tradition went from southern Croatia all the way up to the Croatian minority in Hungary.
Željko Lukačin, Željko Kravrščan, &Branko Grđan - tambura samica, with Lado “Aj Men' Je Dika Ići U Kraljice”
from Kolo Igra, Tamburica Svira Vol. 2 (Slavonija, Baranja & Bačka) (Best 1999) —these tunes are inserted here because they are played on the tambura samica, a small tambura with drone strings. Tunes for bagpipe were often played on this.
Stjepan Večković (gajde), Lado “Gajdaško I Veliko Kolo”
from Kolo Igra, Tamburica Svira Vol. 2 (Slavonija, Baranja & Bačka) (Best 1999)
Gajde su Gajde (Franjo Dervar, Zoltán Szabó, & Antun Vizin) “Gajde Su Gajde”
from Magyarországi Horvát Dudazene (Etnofon 1997) —the title means "a bagpipe is a bagpipe..."
