Stacked Kolos - Second Movement - Canonic Kolo

Uploaded on Sep 3, 2018

Kolo (lit. Wheel) is a circular dance common among South Slavs.

The 7/8 time signature is the signature time of the traditional and folk music of nations of former Yugoslavia.
Not every kolo is written in 7/8 and not every 7/8 folk tune is a kolo but there are is a large intersection between the two sets.

While both first and second movements are in the time signature of 7/8 there is a difference between them. The first movement is actually in (3+2+2)/8 (oom-pah-pah oom-pah oom-pah) this movement is in (2+2+3)/8 (oom-pah oom-pah oom-pah-pah). Both variants of the 7/8 times are present in the folk tradition of the Balkans.

This movement is also slightly faster and in contrast to the first movement, which was stacked around an original theme this one was stacked around the theme of Pachelbel’s Canon in D.

All three movements:
