Slovakia, Slovenia, and Serbia

Slovakia , Slovenia, and Serbia:

We'll look at some music from three different countries today.

Slovakia:

Listen to the fujara. (See notebooking page below.)

Instrument Family: Woodwind

Country of Origin: Slovakia

Facts: The fujara is a large type of flute and has three holes on the front. In the past, shepherds played the fujara for recreation. Now, it is popular in Slovak folk festivals.


Slovenia:

Watch some Slovenian folk dancing, including a couple of musical games, and a boy playing and singing a Slovenian folk song below.

Slovenian Folk Dancing





Here is a sweet song by a boy singing and playing a Slovenian folk song on the accordion.


Serbia

See the notebooking page for the Slavik gusle (a single-stringed instrument played in a vertical position, with a deeply curved bow) Then, listen to this young lady play it and sing. (She performs from 1:15-3:15).)
