About:

Ganga is a type of singing which is characterized by a lone singer singing one line of lyrics and then others joining in for what can be best described as a wail. It is a very passionate form of singing, which is one of the reasons it has been limited in popularity to small towns. Even though it is a unique and autochthonous form of singing by Croats, it is very rare to hear this music on Croatian airwaves. However, several popular Croatian musicians have incorporated some Ganga into their work. It can also be heard in concert music: the American composer Craig Walsh incorporates a Ganga-inspired wailing, sighing, pitch-bending, micro-tonal vocal style in his ‘String Quartet No. 1’ (2010), a work commissioned for the Sarajevo Chamber Music Festival and the Manhattan String Quartet, the second movement of which is clearly paying homage to manga style.

Only recently has Ganga begun to address political issues, frequently adopting overtly nationalistic overtones and incorporating themes from the Croatian Homeland War. Although both men and women regularly perform Ganga, it is extremely unusual for them to perform songs together. It is not unusual at all for both Catholic and Muslim men to perform Ganga together.
