Yugoslavia Made at a national folk festival in 1951, these recordings capture the rich musical traditions and practices prevailing in the territory of the former Yugoslavia. They testify to the depth and scope of ethnomusicological research by regional folklore institutes in their quest to construct a supranational culture - Yugoslavia - poignantly reminding us of an ideal of cultural co-existence. Much of the music presented here may still be heard in the regions of their origin, but cut off from other ethnic musics. It is our hope that these intriguingly beautiful sounds may lead to a more tolerant acceptance of others among a recently divided people. -The Editors.
