I thought we could all share a few songs that represent our nation, so here’s my contribution:

I’m from Croatia, btw.September 25, 2016 at 4:51 pm #404501
I liked that last one, it has a nice melody. Here are some Slovenian songs.
“Sen znala jes” is a new one but it’s folk-inspired I suppose.September 25, 2016 at 11:33 pm #404568

@Xekoslav Aj voz born in Split, gru ap in Trogir. My dad’s family is from Ciovo (near Trogir) and my mom’s family is from Primorski Dolac (Dalmatinska Zagora) and Lovinac (Lika).March 22, 2017 at 5:19 pm #422165
@Lothiriel-Ithil I love Split and Trogir ( we have a house there! + Hajduk zivi vjecno:) ). I’m from Đakovo like most of my generation in our family. Dad’s family is originally from Herceg-Bosna (Duvno) and mom’s from same area (Grude-Mostar). We were part of the waves of Croatian economic migrant settlers from the South to Slavonia in the 50s/60s ( naturally I wasn’t born yet that early)March 23, 2017 at 12:22 am #422104

This is a Slovak folk song Kopala studienku
Lyrics and English translation can be found here:
Slovak anthem:Janko Matúška wrote a nationalist song titled Nad Tatrou sa blýska and he used the melody of Kopala studienku.
The song used to be popular among nationalists and revolutionaries.
The first stanza became a part of Czecho-Slovak anthem and after the split of CZ/SK the first two stanzas were used as Slovak anthem.

When I could I found this artist from Belarus:
Growling is only on the beginning. Most of his work is instrumental I think.
This one is a Polish band singing Ukrainian folk songs:
And these are three lovely ladies from more or less my region [Eastern Poland]:
This is from Silesia:
And this is a song from Tatra mountains, I am sure every Slovak will recognise the melody
(I don’t know if singers are from that region, they were students in some theatre academy)March 24, 2017 at 1:06 pm #435369
