Performances - What we've done
The tambura/tamburitza was born a folk instrument -- a voice of
the people. It evolved from the Persian (Turkish) tambur
into the many versions of tambur in existence today.
Throughout Eastern Europe people adopted and adapted the instrument,
each group enhancing it with the unique stamp of their culture.
Music and songs were unique to each
village, and were preserved by one generation teaching the next.
Today, that village has expanded from a few square miles to
encompass continents, and Šarena is happy to add their
contribution to fostering the enjoyment of this diverse and
versatile instrument and the multitude of cultures it represents.
