Music Ganga style
I would have posted this in the Bosnian forum, if there was one, because it is a tradition common among Herzegovinian Serbs and Croats alike. Sounds very archaic.

Quote:Ganga is a dissonant form of singing, using two clashing notes to project the sound over long distances. For example, if one person is singing a "C" note, another person will join either a half-step above or below ("B" or "C#"). Ganga is traditionally sung by sheepherders across stretches of valleys, for long-distance communication with each other.

Ganga is sung more in the summer than in the winter, because of the lack of farming in rural areas in the winter.

RE: Ganga style
It is also common in Dalmatinska Zagora (bordering region of Herzegovina), specifically Imotski and its surroundings (Imotska krajina).
Now check this out.

RE: Ganga style
I was present at many a wedding where the men started to sing ganga style at one point.

Can't endure these sounds without a few travarica in my bloodstream though. Otherwise it's just pure torture.

Somewhat reminds of an Orthodox liturgy.
