Abstract

From a phenomenological point of view, Sevdalinka – the urban song of the Bosnian-Herzegovinian population, has always attracted scholarly interest. The presence of this form is evident in Serbia as well, performed only vocally/instrumentally and vocally-instrumentally combined. In the context of empirical research for this study, a scaling technique assessment scales were used. The study is aimed at sublimating the opinions of renowned vocal and instrumental music performers (N=16) in Belgrade, in order to gain a detailed insight into the particularities of the interpretations, as well as the musical and aesthetic characteristics of Sevdalinka.
