During the time of former Yugoslavia, the genre developed jointly in Bosnia and Serbia, and performers from both sides of today’s borders still enjoy certain popularity on the other side. Like the surrounding Balkan countries, Bosnia and Herzegovina have had a turbulent past marked by frequent foreign invasions and occupation. As a result, Bosnian music is now a mixture of the national Slavic folklore with some Turkish influences along with influences from the western part of the world. Rural folk traditions in Bosnia and Herzegovina include the shouted, polyphonic Ganga and “ravne pjesme” (flat song) styles, as well as instruments like a drone less bagpipe, wooden flute, and šargija. The gusle, an instrument found throughout the Balkans, is also used to accompany ancient Slavic epic poems. There are also Bosnian folk songs in Ladino, derived from the area’s Jewish population.
