Tina Harrington: Two Serbian Folks Songs

Review: Selected for the Ron Kean multicultural series, these Serbian folk songs have been tastefully arranged by educator, Tina Harrington. Although these pieces can be performed alone, it is actually a partner with "Sano Duso." "Ajde Jano" is a playful love song that frolics and skips as its text celebrates dancing and singing. Even as the music shifts from F minor to major and back again, the ethnic modality transports you to Serbia. A more tender love song than its partner piece, they program perfectly together.

Songlist: Sano Duso, Ajde Jano
