This anthology of authentic traditional Serbian vocal and instrumental music, performed at the 1972 and 1973 Leskovac folk music festival, was recorded by the eminent ethnomusicologist Dragoslav Dević (1925-2017), who played a major role in safeguarding these disappearing musics by collecting 10,000 tracks and over 500 folk musical instruments from various regions of the former Yugoslavia.

 

These fascinating pastoral and rural sounds from time immemorial brimming with vitality and emotion, include male and female vocals (A2, A3, A5, A8, A9, B1, B3, B5, B7), flutes and an ocarina (A1, A4, A6, B1, B2, B4, B6), bagpipes (A9, B3, B8), and a Jew’s harp (A7).

 

Many musics here are inextricably connected to kolo (A1, A3, A4, A6, A7, B2, B4, B6, B8), “a traditional, collective folk dance performed by dancers who are interlinked to form a chain, usually moving in a circular line holding hands with their arms down. It is performed to the accompaniment of music at private and public gatherings and involves all members of the local community… It is a symbol of national identity and bears the hallmark of local and regional communal identities.”*

Cette anthologie de musique traditionnelle vocale et instrumentale serbe, jouée lors du Festival de musique folklorique à Leskovac en 1972 et 1973, a été enregistrée par 
l'éminent ethnomusicologue Dragoslav Dević (1925-2017) qui a joué un rôle majeur dans la sauvegarde de ces musiques menacées en enregistrant 10.000 morceaux et recueillant plus de 500 instruments de musique folklorique.

Ces sonorités pastorales et rurales de la nuit des temps produisent des musiques débordant de vitalité et d'émotion, avec notamment des voix masculines et féminines (A2, A3, A5, A8, A9, B1, B3, B5, B7), diverses flûtes et un ocarina (A1, A4, A6, B1, B2, B4, B6), des cornemuses (A9, B3, B8) et une guimbarde (A7).

Nombre de ces musiques sont inextricablement liées au kolo (A2, A3, A5, A8, A9, B1, B3, B5, B7), « une danse populaire collective traditionnelle, exécutée par des danseurs évoluant autour d’un cercle, main dans la main, les bras tendus vers le sol. Le kolo est exécuté au rythme de la musique à l’occasion de rassemblements privés et publics, auxquels participent l’ensemble des membres de la communauté locale… Le kolo possède une importante fonction sociale intégrative, créant une identité collective à différents niveaux de la communauté. »**
