Singing to the Accompaniment of the Gusle

Language: Serbian

Singing to the accompaniment of the Gusle a simple string instrument is an ancient art of performing primarily heroic epics. Performances are carried out by soloist artists (guslars) and involve a complex form of interaction between the audience and performer. Covering a wide range of topics, from archetypal motifs to historical themes and modern life, the songs reflect the community's value system. Local organizations are assembled around the Union of Guslars of Serbia, which has established the Festival of Young Guslars and the Assembly of the Young Guslars of Serbia.
