About Tamburitza

Tamburica or Tamboura refers to a family of long-necked lutes popular in Southern Europe and Central Europe, especially Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Serbia (especially Vojvodina), Slovenia, and Hungary. Tamburitza still carries the most characteristic sound of Vojvodina, the north of Serbia. Recognizable melodies, the true sound of Serbian prerie and Vojvodina’s bowery – this is what our instruments have to offer

About Us

Greetings from Novi Sad! We are a female tabmuritza orchestra from Novi Sad and we would like to take part in one of your performances when you are in the port of our town. We play different types of music (from traditional to popular music from different parts of the town) and we are sure it would be interesting for your travellers to experience our music. In the upcoming material you can find out something more about us.

Tamburitza orchestra La Banda was established at the end of 2013, with a simple aim: to play modern melodies (popular and film music predominantly, with a pinch of disco, jazz and carefully chosen traditional melodies) on tambura. Each member of the orchestra has got a lot of stage experience outside the orchestra, as well as the 5-year-long team work. Having this in mind, our 2-hour repertoire is packed with just enough energetic, romantic, exciting and silly moments on stage. We keep in mind to wisely choose and adapt our music to the cause and the nature of the event we participate in. La Banda is a contras and abalance at the same time, it is a pure mixture of youth, energy, tradition, experiment and free spirit. People of different generations can easily enjoy in our music, which we consider as of our greatest prizes.
