    What Nashville is for country music in US, competition in Guča (eng. Gucha) is for Serbian folk trumpet bands. Originaly competition of Gypsy brass bands it became institution in itself. BTW its a trumpet player competition so you will probably recognise (or not) some folk versions of western music :grin:

    I was never much into folk songs.
    One has to difereciate between real folk (narodna glasba) and pop-folk/turbo-folk music (narodno zabavna glasba). Basicly Yugoslavia had multitude of different national styles.
    Us Slovenes are more polka oriented. Even in Slovenia differences between regions are huge in this respect. In East Slovenia folk music is similar to Hungarian and gypsy music in the west it is similar to Istrian music. Similar differences are in every other nation in former Yuga.

    BTW it is interesting that all Slavic poeple love to sing (even if we sometimes don't sing well :grin: ). It is said that 3 Slovenes in one place (or two Slovenes and a bottle of wine :grin: ) are a singing quire.
    It is interesting to note that almost all bands have voice of the singer in first row and entire music is there only to support the singer. That is basic even in our rock music. For us Slavs songs are written to be sung not so much played (as music) and they absolutley must have the melody (not the beat). Siddhartha is good example. Texts are what made them big in Slovenia. Problem is that one has to know the language to understand the song.

    a few hours turned into a few days... oh well...

    The Epic Serbian Melodic Metal Bonanza!
    AlogiA ( http://www.alogia.org.yu/ )

    Serbian prog metal. got a place in the "10 worst bands in 2005" category by german Metal Hammer.

    but seriously, **** Metal Hammer. many webzines have given Secret Spheres Of Art (latest album. only album in english) good reviews, and you should check it for yourself before trusting Metal Hammer

    Demether
    melodic metal with power/opera influences, but below-average production (a problem that most serbian bands have). their website is down, but http://www.cdbaby.com/cd/demether should have a few samples.

    Abonos
    another good serbian band, with more gothic influences (a mix of thrashy riffs, opera vocals, some growls and funky bass lines :D). worth checking out (if only for the uber hot ladies). they also mix serbian and english in their lyrics, but don't worry, serbian is a beautiful language
    http://www.abonosband.com/

    Diluvium
    kind of like Evanescence, but without that icky commercial feeling. slow guitarbased goth, with good reviews from several sources. unfortunately, they're on CCP Records, which i hate with a fiery passion since they screwed May Result over*. nevertheless, CCP are close with SPV, one of the greatest distributers in the world, so distribution shouldn't be a problem (i hope)

    http://www.diluvium.net/intro.php

    *changed name and cover on their first album, "Stars Hysteria" (name changed to "Gorgeous Symphonies Of Evil", and the cover looks like shit). the second album, "Tmina", got to keep it's name, but the cover was a mess (resolution changes and whatnot). not to mention that the assholes have exclusive rights to all MR material for another 37 (or so) years


    Drinking songs

    Orthodox Celts ( http://www.orthodoxcelts.co.yu/ )
    irish folk rock from Belgrade. don't know what more to say :p

    A couple years back (2005) legendary Sarajevo group Bjelo dugme had concerts in Belgrade , Sarajevo and Zagreb (living proof that good music knows no borders). First time they preformed together since the start of last series of wars in former YU (some were in serbia, croatia, bosnia, west europe).
    This clips are from Belgrade Hipodrom ( around 1/2 million poeple) and everyone knew the texts and sung. Great filling (wish i was there):
    Ružica si bila sada više nisi ( you were a rose now you are not anymore):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iS22CVqzzJk&mode=related&search=

    Đurđev dan (St. Georges day):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v8JBKdpWQDc&mode=related&search=

    Lipe cvatu (god damn fuck'n Garnier and their commercials):
    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WgceOer_gT0&mode=related&search=

    same gig in Zagreb:
    A i ti me izneveri (And even you let me down):
