A beautiful 3 part girl’s song from the village of Ražanac on Dalmatian coast of Croatia. This song has a beautiful circle dance that accompanies it.

O, Ražanac, beautiful proud village! Everyone always lives well there! In the middle of the village there is a well with cool waters. There gather the rosy-cheeked girls of the village.


A short two part village wedding song from the region of Slavonija in Croatia. The song is typically sung with joking, improvised verses made up by anyone at the wedding.

Oh how I love to go to a wedding – where my dear lamb is – where my sweetheart calls me.
All the guests are adorned with wine.
Our daughter-in-law will have a son within a year and she doesn’t even know the “our Father”. Sweetheart, you are a fool!  He’s joking and you want to get married.

Da je višnja

A sweet 2-part love song I collected in the Croatian community in southern Hungary.
I hear that someone from England has choreographed a circle dance to this recording!
On this recording it is accompanied by tamburicas, but can be sung a cappella as well.

If sour cherries were like sweet ones, I would be the most beautiful.
But, sour cherries are sour, my sweet fawn, where are you?
I’d like to see you but don’t let anyone know.
Two apples and three quince are going bad in the cupboard,
They are going bad while waiting for you sweetheart.
