Christian people of the Balkans spent a few centuries under Ottoman Empire. From
time to time they were not able to do anything concerning their culture, even to
sing or to dance. So they (young men and women) went to hidden places in
mountains or somewhere else and danced their national folk dance called kolo
(circled chain dance). Music or singing could take the attention of invaders so they danced
in silence. The only sound was the rhythm of their steps on the ground and
tinkling of coins on their chests as a part of their folk costume. Nowadays that
dance (called deaf dance) is a part of the very rich Balkans folklore and
inspired me to compose this piece in dedication to all those people who dreamt of the freedom while playing this dance.
Images and videos which show various folklore groups while dancing gluvo kolo I found on the net.




Hriscani Balkana proveli su nekoliko vijekova pod upravom Turske Imperije.
S vremena na vrijeme bivalo im je zabranjivano da imaju bilo kakva okupljanja pa cak i ona kulturnog karaktera.
Ali mladost, koja je uvijek zeljna igre, nalazila je nacina da i u takvim uslovima da oduska tim prirodnim potrebama.
Tako su isli u planine ili neka druga skrivena mjesta i igrali nacionalnu folklornu igru - 'Kolo'.
Muzika ili pjesma je mogla privuci turske vlasti, pa su oni igrali u tisini.
Jedini zvuk koji se mogao cuti bio je ritam njihovih koraka po zemlji i priguseno zveckanje dukata na prsima, koji su bili
dio njihove nacionalne nosnje.
Danas se ta igra zove 'Gluvo Kolo' i predstavlja obavezan dio veoma bogatog balkanskog folklora.
Taj ritam 'Gluvog Kola' me je inspirisao za ovo muzicko djelo, i ja ga posvecujem svima onima koji su igrajuci ovo kolo sanjali o sretnijim i slobodnijim vremenima.
Scene na kojima se vide razlicite folklorne grupe dok igraju gluvo kolo preuzete su sa Interneta. Negdje se njihov ritam podudara sa mojim, a negdje ne.
Ovim se ujedno i zahvaljujem svim folklornim drustvima koji cuvaju i prenose na mladje prebogat balkanski folklor.
