narodnjaci vs. zabavnjaci Aug 2, 2004

narodna musika = folk music

novokomponovana narodna muzika je muzika koja lici na narodnu, ali joj se zna autor

zabavna musika = obuhvata uglavnom sve ono sto nije narodna i nije ozbiljna muzika (pop, rock, hip-hop, raggae i mnogo toga jos)

ozbiljna muzika = classics

Country/Top 40 Aug 2, 2004

In case you don't speak Serbian, here is another explanation:

It's sort of like the difference between country and top 40 music in the US.

Narodna muzika is folk music. It sometimes has silly lyrics, about love, drinking, betrayal and themes associated with these topics, just like country music in the US.

Zabavna muzika is all other contemporary music, including popular hits from other countries.

puno hvala Aug 3, 2004

Puno Hvala

I came up with this topic because I was confused why in www.clubparada.com some Serbian songs such as Karleusa's "Zene vole dijamante" and "Ludaca" are regarded as "narodne" while a lot of Ceca Slavkovic's and Zeljko Joksimovic's songs are regarded as "zabavne".

ps. Govorim i razumem jugoslovenski jezik malo.

Hola, escribo en espańol, porque veo que sabes, y no sé cuanto entiendes de serbio. Es que en los últimos ańos hay una mezcla de todo en la musica allá, los que cantan "narodna" música, hacen canciones que se parecen a "zabavna" y al revés. Creo cque es el caso de Karleusha (sin embargo, esta es "nueva" narodna musica, es decir el remedo de la verdadera. Existe algo llamado "turbofolk" que es una malograda fusión de varios ritmos y dominaba en los ańos noventa (ente las masas). Saludos. Ljilja

opet ja Aug 4, 2004

izvinjavam se sto je prethodna poruka bila na spanskom, ne znam toliko engleski da bih mogla da je napisem. Prevodim za ostale samo da je devedesetih godina bila u modi mesavina, gde su narodnjaci pevali nesto sto lici na zabavnu muziku i obrnuto i fenomen turbofolka. Pozdravljam sve clanove foruma i drago mi je sto postoji. ljilja

A sevdalinke? Aug 6, 2004

Ne zaboravite sevdalinke i stare (starogradske) narodne pjesme, koje nemaju veze sa danasnjom takozvanom narodnom muzikom

Said

p.s. pitam se da li se "ganga" smatra muzikom...
