One of my favorite and a very popular Macedonian tune that my Balkan band, Kermes, performs called Jovano, Jovanke–this one for cello duet on one cello. Thanks to The Neophyte Cellist for posting this video she found via Emily Anne Peterson’s blog.
Lyrics to the song may be found at the dunav site.
Iva Casian Lakos and Eric Tinkerhess play a traditional Macedonian love song, Jovano, Jovanke, adapted from an arrangement by Giovanni Sollima and Monika Leskovar
Now I’m really interested in the arrangers listed on the youtube link!
Just got back from my show–two hour drives after a three hour show didn’t used to wear me out so much. Must be getting old *sighs*
a vid of my Balkan band playing this in Bloomington, IN–I’m playing drums here, not cello obviously!
