The Tine Rožanc Folk Dance & Song Ensemble is an amateur amateur group from Ljubljana, named after a national hero and railway worker. Specialising in the folk music of their native Slovenia, these young performers take an active interest in the songs and dances of the other regions, and have added many to their repertoire. They have been one of the few Yugoslav groups to have toured in Europe, and it was during a visit to London in April 1961 that these items were recorded.

Recorded and produced by Bill Leader in April 1961

Review

This review is from Gramophone, May 1965:

Other unfamiliar and colourful music worthy of a trial is a group of five Macedonian and Albanian Dances played by the Tine Rožanc Ensemble and recorded by this amateur folksong and dance group on their last visit to London in 1963. Distinctive colour is given to the sound by the tapan, a large drum which is played with a heavy stick in one hand and a thin cane to tap out cross rhythms in the other, and the tarabuka, a small hand drum (Topic TOP112).
