"Razvigore" Women Singers Ensemble
Razvigore Women Singers’ Ensemble was founded in late 1999 as part of the ethno-group of Vladimir Mandić – Manda Researchers’ Club from Valjevo. Razvigore are nowadays actively involved in female vocal ethno music and are seeking their spot on the variegated music scene in Serbia.
Razvigore have given many concerts in Serbia and other countries. They are also frequent participants of folk music concerts held in Serbia, where they are treated as respectable performers. Ethno sound research has become increasingly popular in the last few years along with the wave of the World Music, but the sound that distinguishes Razvigore has a much stronger impact on the audience, almost with a cathartic effect, which cannot be said about some more popular commercial musicians from the Balkans, who have already achieved brand status, not only in the field of music. Thus, being in the Serbian ethno underground and not being slaves to commercial market demands, Razvigore are also able to engage themselves in music education, what they consider to be their primary mission.
|Concerning their releases, there are several demos and audio clips from live concerts by Razvigore (concert given in the Ethnographic Museum in Belgrade and Christmas concerts in Valjevo 2003 and 2004). Razvigore allowed the Serbian Language and Culture Workshop to use some of their recordings and enabled their free download to all visitors of this site.|
|Since the beginning of the Serbian Language and Culture Workshop Razvigore have been involved in the music segment of our programs and made it high above the average. Marija, Jovana, Sonja, Tanja and Aleksandra reveal the secrets of music to our students. Owing to them the Workshop probably has the best and most attractive courses in Serbian folk music for foreigners.|
Here you can download some audio clips from Razvigore concerts and from singing classes held in Summer School in Serbian Language and Culture 2003.
