The following notes, collected while making a community study in the region of Sumadija, central Serbia, in 1953-1954, present a glimpse of village chants and songs and describe the circumstances under which they are sung. The intent here is simply to illustrate their position in the total peasant culture and not to analyze their musical form and content.
