Teodulija “Duni Mi Duni Lađane”
from Serbian Etno Sound (Hi-Fi Centar 2005) —after the very old-fashioned style of the preceding, I had to show what is being done with the old music these day. This style is sometimes called "Turbo-folk", but most turbo folk is quite different and new-composed.
Perica Simonović “Dunavski Vihor”
from Perica i instrumentalna pratnja narodnog orkestra Novice Negovanovića (Beograd Disk) —a very good quick kolo with strong dance beats. From near the Danube river.
Narodni Orkestar Vlastimira Pavlovica Carevca (1957-1964) “Splet pesama i igara (Striži mome-Cigančica-Moj Borije-Carevčevo kolo)”
from Zapisano u vremenu [Disc 1] (RTS/PCP 1997) —This is a suite for Serbian radio orchestra - a slow song tune, followed by a dance in 7/8 alternating with a slow song, and ending in a kolo.
Ljubomir Živkov and Serbian group “Trgnala mi moma Ruma na voda studena”
from Ti plaviš, zoro bajna ((self produced) 2014) —After having been almost forgotten in Serbia, Tambura music is coming back (it had been kept going in the US since Serbian and Croatian immigrants arrived after 1900). here is one of the leading exponents of the revival in Serbia. This song is in 9/8.
Branislav Dušanović sa ansamblom Ace Dušanović “Zdrelsko”
from Vlaška Kola (Jugodisk (cassette) 1983) —This show is in honor of Serb Fest at Holy Trinity Serbian Orthodox church, just off Russell and McNair. We start with a suite of East Serbian/Vlach tunes. This area of Serbia has a lot of Romanian influence, reflecting their language.
