A Baedeker tour of international musical curiosities from the 78rpm era with Oliver Carter-Wakefield. Sometimes frantic but never dull, the music of tamburitza provided the soundtrack to many a village bacchanal in the former Yugoslavia. On this week's show we examine the history of tamburitza and look at how this vibrant music traveled from its war ravaged homeland and experienced a new lease of life in the USA. With music by the Kapugi brothers, Dave Zupkovich, Joe Matacic and the Royal Serbian Tamburitza Orchestra.
