This independent study serves as an introduction of the Serbian folk music from the time of former Yugoslavia to classical musicians unfamiliar with its style. It provides research about its characteristics, heritage, and development, as well as the introduction to a few of many folk songs popular to this day. Furthermore, it offers arrangements and an explanation of the arranging process from the perspective of a classical music performer, which can serve as an inspiration and guide to other musicians interested in arranging music, as well as different styles of music.
