Music of Croatia

The music of Croatia is mostly associated with tamburitza[?], a form of folk music that revolves around the tambura[?]. Tamburitza became increasingly popular in the 1800s, and small bands began to form, paralleling similar developments in Russia, Italy and the Ukraine. It is sometimes said that the first sextet of tambura players was formed by Pajo Kolarić[?] of Osijek in 1847.

Some fans of tamburitza claim that the tambura is the most commonly used ethnic instrument moved to the United States from a foreign country.
