Serbian Language – Music To Your Ears?


Serbian language, together with Croatian, Bosnian and other can sometimes sound strange to foreigners non accustomed to Slavic languages, as described in this pre-historic Onion article from 1997. But, when put into a song, it can indeed sound very nice and musical. Here are two fresh songs that confirm this theory. The first one is this year’s Serbian 2011 Eurovision entry, miss Nina with the song “Čaroban”:

The second one is the latest local underground Internet hit – Lady Jelena with the song “Nikola”. Enjoy.

    You should have sent Nikola to ESC instead :-)

    Btw, youtube says it’s 2011 but in the article it says 2001. Typo somewhere.

  2. Viktor says:

    Yeah, I think “Nikola”would be a great ESC candidate too :)
    Thanks for the correction, it was a typo in the article.

    Let us be precise, and stop telling lies: there are no Croatian and Bosnian languages. Those are all Serbian languages. Western politicians and Catholic Church created the last two mentioned, out of plain Serbian language.

    I agree with Stanko – Croatian and Bosnian don’t really exist, they’re just desperate attempts by people who always spoke Serbian to develop some sense of national identity after the west destroyed Yugoslavia.

    On a lighter note, Serbian’s an ACE language, especially for music and poetry – In English, a song like Anestezija by EKV, or any of the ballads relating to Kosovo Polje just flow better in Serbian.

    Interesting fact – Serbian is rated as being as difficult to learn as Mandarin Chinese! JOJ!
