YOU ASK – MR BOKI MILOŠEVIĆ ANSWERS / No. 6
Mitar from Paris asks Boki:
– Could you tell us something about the styles and ornaments that are present in our folk music?
Boki Milošević answers:
– I’ve always wanted to be native, original and to get closer to my roots. To be honest, I’m proud because I have succeeded to imprint all of it in our (Balkan) folk music.
Since I had played with Carevac for a long time at Radio Belgrade and in the Sextet of Dusko Radetic, who was at that time responsible for the folk music of Southern and Western Serbia, I tried to move ornaments that are characteristic in these regions into all appropriate compositions which I performed in my artistic career.
Style of music firstly determines area where the composition comes from, ie. which region.
Depending on this, the appropriate music and ornaments are used.
Boki is ready and glad to answer to any question!
Best regards to all!
