Ljubiša Pavković “Medeno Kolo”
from Nova Kola (RTB) —this is the slow cool kolo style the older generation of accordion players excelled at
Vitomir Stanojević “Sabor Kolo”
from Kola na Fruli (Take it or leave it) —this frula (6-holed flute) player is from the Vlach area of East Serbia. One folklorist told me that all the really good frula players are Vlachs. See the next track for another Vlach player.
Peter Kosovec “Zvijezda Tjera Mjeseca”
from Stara Škola (self 2010) —this young band is from the Pittsburgh area. They don't play folklore, they play MUSIC
Radojke i Tineta Živković “Božurevka Kolo”
from (45 rpm disc) (RTB) —this classic duet/husband-wife team set the style for post WWII Serbian music, although it had its roots earlier. Radojke was considered the most artistically important of the two - unusual for a woman in those times
Gordana Jovanović “Tarapani”
from Romi, Romi, Gypsy Soul (Jugoton LP) —This self-identified Gypsy singer is photographed on her album cover dressed in an outfit that is covered in sequins, mirrors, and oodles of glass beads, all overlying layers of drapery
Fejat Sejdić “Kacabačko Kolo”
from Svirac Svira Kolo Igra (RTB (LP) 1976) —OK, so I played this only 2 months ago - I like this group - they have won several times at the Guča festival of Serbian Brass music
Bilja Krstić I ork. Bistrik “Izgrejala sjajna mesečina”
from Tarpoš ((self) 2007) —The group hails from Vranje, in south Serbia, but is not a "folk group" in the usual sense; insead they have taken old songs and presented them with unusual & inventive instrumentation
