    The list wouldn't be complete without the most 'serbiest', ancient and traditional of all the Serbian music, the instrument on which our whole tradition and epic poetry is based on (and the one only a Serb can listen to, longer than a minute :) )

    [size=12pt]The Gusle[/size]

    The Serbian gusle (pluralia tantum) has one or two strings and is usually made of maple wood. A guslar is an individual capable of reproducing and composing poems about heroes and historical events to the accompaniment of this instrument, usually in the decasyllable meter. There are records of an instrument named gusle (гоусли) being played at the court of the 13th-century Serbian King Stefan Nemanjić, but it is not certain whether the term was used in its present-day meaning or it denoted some other kind of string instrument. Polish poets of the 17th century mentioned the gusle in their works. In a poem published in 1612, Kasper Miaskowski wrote that "the Serbian gusle and gaidas will overwhelm Shrove Tuesday" (Serbskie skrzypki i dudy ostatek zagluszą). In the idyll named Śpiewacy, published in 1663, Józef Bartłomiej Zimorowic used the phrase "to sing to the Serbian gusle" (przy Serbskich gęślach śpiewać). In some older Serbian books on literature it was stated that a Serbian guslar performed at the court of Władysław II Jagiełło in 1415, but this is not confirmed in Polish sources.

    The gusle has played a significant role in the history of Serbian epic poetry because of its association with the centuries old patriotic oral legacy. Most of the epics are about the era of the Ottoman occupation and the struggle for the liberation from it. With the efforts of ethnographer Vuk Stefanović Karadžić, many of these epics have been collected and published in books in the first half of the 19th century.

    :: This kind of music is very, very old, dating from the pre-christian pagan times, so be advised that it sounds extremly archaic and may feel unpleasant to the modern listener, nevertheless it will give you introspective in what kind of music old-Serbs used to create and listen. In terms of tradition, the gusle are the sole essence of the Serbian traditional music.

    Cvetinov do you think Gusle might be ancient Slavic instrument or were they developed later? By the way Gosli means filddle in Slovene. Kinda similar words dont you think? :D

    All facts point towards being ancient Slavic, in all Slavic languages it represents a string instrument (gusle, husle, gosli etc.), some more developed (more strings, chord tunings like a fiddle for example), some in it's presumably original archaic variant (e.g. the Serbian Gusle with only one, occasionally two strings). The Gusle's closest instrument relatives are theMorin Khuur and Igil, both ancient steppe fiddles, accompanied with singing, and strangely enough the same animal-head design at the head of the instrument. The Byzantine Lyra which is similar to the Gusle is first depicted some hundred years after the emergence of the first Slavic kingdoms on Byzantine territory, presumably it was influenced by the Slavic Gusle rather than vice versa, or evolved independently.

    In both cases it is still, as far as I know, one of the oldest (if not the oldest) variant of a tonal instrument known to Slavs, thus making it archaic or ancient Slavic.

    [td]I

    U danima kad na Nikšić
    Crnogorci udariše
    Kad bijahu došli dani
    Da ne bude turski više

    U logoru crnogorskom
    Pokraj kule Lekovića
    Neko knjazu okleveta
    Popa Mila Jovovića.

    A knjaz Mila dozivaše
    Uz prisustvo svih vojvoda
    Pa mu reče: Pope Milo,
    nit' si vino nit' si voda!

    Kad to čuše pope Milo
    Poleće mu sablji ruka
    A dva oka k'o strijele
    Sijevnuše u hajduka.

    Vojvode se uplašiše
    Od izgleda vuka gorskog
    Da oružje ne potegne
    Na vladara crnogorskog.

    Kao da mu oštrim mačem
    Srce muško rasiječe
    Pa zavika: Gospodaru,
    Bog sa tobom, šta to reče!

    Te ljutito napustio
    Gospodara i vojvode
    I pod sator svoj svileni
    Sa mislima teškim ode.

    Pa u ljutnji gusle zgrabi
    Odjeknuše tanke strune
    Kliknu Milo kao soko
    Te se majkom ćetnom kune:

    Da će poći u grad Nikšić
    Sam bez ikog istog dana
    I na megdan pozvat silnog
    Mušovića kapetana.

    Baci gusle uzja' vranca
    Preko Zete predje vode
    I na hatu pomamnome
    Preko polja gradu ode.[/td]

    [td]          [/td]

    [td]II

    Leti vranac niz Rastoke
    Kao da ga nose krila
    No s bedema turska straža
    Opazila popa Mila.

    A pop Milo sve je bliže
    Do Turaka i šanaca
    Pod sobom je zamorio
    Bijesnoga svoga vranca.

    Kao što mu dolikuje
    Bira turske porodice
    Na najtvrđe ide šance
    Na najljuće gradske zlice.

    Pa ako bi poginuo
    Da pogine od junaka
    Od čuvenih i priznatih
    Idrizovih potomaka.

    Ustavi ga turska straža
    Na kapiju kod Nikšića
    Kaza im se i naredi:
    Zovite mi Mušovića!

    Kada čuše Turci ko je
    Potrčaše kapetanu
    Malo zatim i Mušović
    Na kapiju gradsku stanu.

    Pa kad viđe popa Mila
    Na bijesnom vrancu svome
    Dolasku se iznenadnom
    Obradova njegovome.

    Odkud jutros Jovoviću!
    Veselijem glasom reče
    Zar od knjaza crnogorskog
    U moj tvrdi grad uteče.

    Primamo te objeručke
    Sve ćemo ti oprostiti
    Životu ti harambašo
    Vjeruj neće ništa biti.

    Planu Milo: Dosta više!
    Ne budali bez potrebe.
    Ja sam doša' kapetane
    Da na megdan zovem tebe.[/td]

    [td]          [/td]

    [td]III

    No se spremi i izadji
    Biraj mjesto za megdana.
    Te riječi kao munja
    Pogodiše kapetana.

    Preblijedje pred hajdukom
    Iz junačke Markovine
    Jer je znao da od sablje
    Njegove se lako gine.

    Ne smje megdan da prihvati
    Prepade se svojoj glavi
    A na slavu i na prošlost
    Kuće svoje zaboravi.

    Već u strahu, kukavički
    Znak na kulu straži dade
    Jeknu plotun sa glavice
    Pop pogodjen s konja pade.

    Vranac pregnu i pobježe
    Natrag preko vode Zete
    A na Mila sa sabljama
    Niz glavicu Turci lete.

    Pa se grabe ko će prije
    Manut sabljom po sokolu
    Za čije je ime čuo
    I car Hamid u Stambolu

    Na mrtvoga popa stiže
    Ferizović Hasan prvi
    Zviznu sablja glava pade
    Uz točenu lokvu krvi.

    Na najveću gradsku kulu
    Na vrh hana Mušovića
    Istaknuše Turci glavu
    Popa Mila Jovovića

    Sa svrzovog oštrog koca
    Gleda Milo sa visine
    Kako mu se Turci zore
    I po gradu šenluk čine.

    A gavran se, crna ptica
    Obradova iznenada
    Kad krvavu vidje glavu
    Pa se vije iznad grada.[/td]

    [td]          [/td]

    [td]IV

    Primiče se iznad čabre
    Da na bedem padne prvi
    Po starijem navikama
    Mušku glavu da nagrdi.

    A krijuci iz harema
    Kroz pendžere vire bule
    Da čuvenu vide glavu
    Srpskog popa na vrh kule[/td]

    Расти, расти мој зелени боре

    I was searching for a version to post, and settled for this one, although to be honest I shivered the most when heard it sung in its tradition by a young woman in a monastery, filmed with a cellphone. You can find it by typing 'Rasti, rasti moj zeleni bore, manastir Velika remeta' in Youtube.

    In this old song, a fragment of the Serbian soul was preserved.

    I have always loved this song.  But this version.. just gave me goose bumps the minute it started. Wow!  Amazingly beautiful! I love this country so much!
