Balkan party music in Seattle

Lidija

Posted on Sep 4, 2018

This song was a hit for Serbian singer Branka Sovrlic in 1990. It has also been recorded by the Yuri Yunakov Ensemble in New York with vocalist Carol Silverman, who sings slightly different lyrics. We learned the song from her, but the chart below uses Branka Sovrlic’s lyrics (note that the second line of the chorus uses different words after each verse). We play it as a cocek.
