Jovano Jovanke

Jovano Jovanke

An exquisite guitar trio version of this favorite Macedonian traditional folk song. Jovano Jovanke is a traditional folk song of the region of Macedonia. The song has also been adapted and performed in neighboring Balkan states such as Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia. It is about two young lovers separated by their disapproving parents. My adaptation of the song features virtuoso introduction followed by a theme gently played after which comes the improvisation part characterized by pulsing rhythms and melodic solo parts. The piece ends quietly with a return of the theme.
