Mirko Kolesar (part II)

Here is another record with tambura legend Mirko Kolesar and his Blue Danube Tamburitza Orchestra. The first track features Nick Brozovich singing a gutsy rendition of "Poslušaću staru majku", a beautiful old song composed by another legendary tamburaš, Marko Nešić. Side B is a great version of an old tune from southern Serbia, "Zašto, Sike, zašto". Kolesar's version seems to be inspired by Serbian tenor Mijat Mijatović's famous recording of the song made in the late 1920's.

Poslušaću staru majku

Zašto, Sike, zašto
