This lively dance in a 9/8 meter (2+2+2+3) is a popular song throughout the former Yugoslavia. The infectious rhythm moves this energetic piece forward. Try using a bright, Eastern European tone quality to give a more authentic sound to the music. If you like to add a little movement to your performances, the chorus is a good place for some simple clapping and choreography.
