Niska Banja

Traditional Serbian Folk Song

Now available in several voicings, Niska Banja is a Serbian Roma dance popular throughout the Balkans. To Central Europeans, the 9/8 rhythm of 2-2-2-3 is as natural as a 4/4 rock beat is in North America, and rapidly becomes both infectious and quite natural.

The 45 mixed-voice Chorus members, ages 8-15, travel twice weekly to receive training in the art of singing, reading and understanding music and music theory, and adhere to a rigorous schedule of rehearsals and concerts. "Untraveled Worlds" is a musical world tour, beginning with the US and a Halley original, the title tune, and later we hear another Halley original, "God Be Merciful Unto Us." England's "Drop, Drop Slow Tears," Finland's "Who Can Sail," Russia's "Gladsome Light," South Africa's "Mbiri Kuna Mwari" and Scotland's "The Grey Selchie" are particularly nice, as is Serbia's lilting "Niska Banja."

Some light accompaniment.
