Comment: The recording is not followed by data about the genre of the song. This melody is more widespread and can be met in wedding and Midsummer (Ivandan) songs (songs for the feast of St. John the Baptist, celebrated on 7th July) in these regions (for ex. in Serbian Midsummer song from Pomáz, nr. 153).
