etnoakademik_zv.krajolici

Etnoakademik: Soundscapes of Bosnia and Herzegovina

Etnoakademik is a vocal ensemble from the Academy of Music in Sarajevo. The ensemble was founded by Dr. Ankica Petrović in the late 80’s of the last century, with members who were students of the Department for Musicology and Ethnomusicology. After many years of interruption, the ensemble continued its work in 2003. The programme orientation of the ensemble is based on nurturing and presenting vocal, instrumental and vocal-instrumental music tradition, with secular and spiritual content, rural and urban practice of all three constitutive people of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The ensemble is coordinated by Dr. Tamara Karača-Beljak and Branka Vidović.

In the recent period th ensemble Etnoakademik presented its work in several significant manifestations. We decided to offer a CD with concert records of traditional and folk music of Bosnia and Herzegovina performed by Etnoakademik, without visible interventions and treatments. The intention was to present the way in which students of the Academy of Music place their theoretical knowledge, gained in the field of ethnomusicology, in the context of performing practice. When selecting audio recordings, made at concerts and public performances in 2009 and 2011, we focused on representative, impressive and successfully performed examples. Finally, we note that the justification for this publishing endeavour is found in the fact that this kind of release, due to the complexity of preparation, its non-commerciality and not meeting the prevailing demands of the audience, is very rare. The publishing of a CD Soundscape of Bosnia and Herzegovina is supported by Tempus project.
