“Antique Fest” – "The Knowledge and Skills of Making and Playing Traditional Musical Wind Instruments"

The idea of the “Antique fest” is to connect the rich cultural heritage of Eastern Serbia with contemporary performing practices.

Workshops and programs of the Antique Studio will enable the knowledge and skills that are almost forgotten to be taken out from the Kingdom of Darkness (originally Tamni vilajet). That is the way of preserving our cultural heritage for future generations.

During the “Antique fest”, the Native Museum of Homolje hosted the exhibition called The Knowledge and Skills of Making and Playing Traditional Musical Wind Instruments which was opened by Nebojša Bradić, the director and founder of the “Antique fest”. On the second day of the manifestation, there was a promotion of the book The Intangible Cultural Heritage from the Anthropological Perspective by Jelena Đuković. During the promotion, both Miloš Matić from the Anthropological Museum and Danijela Filipović from the Center for the Intangible Cultural Heritage held speeches. Furthermore, there was a knowledge workshop on making wind instruments whose moderator was Suzana Antić from the National Museum in Zaječar. The intangible cultural heritage is preserved through playing traditional musical instruments. The participants of the “Antique fest” were also members of the Association of Fifers from Osanica. Irena Marić plays both “duduk” (a double wooden wind instrument made of apricot tree) and a fife, Bora Nikolić plays ocarina as well as a fife, while Janko Marić plays “rikalo” (literally, it can be translated as ‘the roarer’ - a very old wind instrument for shepherds, made of the tree bark or the carved wood; it belongs to the group of trumpets). The roarer is considered to be the most interesting instrument of its sort, characteristic of the northeast of Serbia. Shepherds used it for calling and giving signals.
