Tambura

The tambura is the traditional stringed instrument of the people, and was brought to the Balkan region by the Turks during the period of their conquests in the 14th and 15th centuries.

An instrument similar to the tambura was known in ancient Mesopotamian culture in the 3rd century, and mentions of foreruners of it are preserved in Egypt.

The tambura was also brought during the migrations of the nations to Slavonia, in the very middle of which Bizovac is located. In this Croatian region the tambura is the instrument of the people, the most popular of all instruments, although it is played today all over Croatia.

Tambure

The direct relation between the tambura and the traditional popular arts is manifested best of all in the Culture and Art Societies. There is hardly a single popular arts ensemble that does not have its tambura players. A tambura ensemble can provide the perfect accompaniment to the singing and dancing of traditional arts groups. In the Bizovac group, the tambura is used to accompany both singers and dancers.

The tambura section is a small group of tambura players. In it there are the instruments: bisernica, two brača (brothers - first and second bass), contra and berda (bass).
