Tamburitza Roko Abramovich, musician, technician, and arranger, was born in Eureka, Utah, on August 15, 1909. He spent the next 18 years of his life with relatives back in Yugoslavia, and came to the Chicago area around 1927. In Chicago, Roko mastered the farkash brac, and played with the "Selacka Stranka" orchestra, under the direction of Aloise Jaksa. Later in the fifties and sixties, Roko merged with Nick Skertich to form the ever popular Veseljaci Orchestra, whose members included Mickey Kusecek, Ray Jankovich, Bucky Bukvich, and Ray Ratz. Roko was married to the late Mary Bertovic in May 1934, and from that marriage they were blessed with two beautiful daughters, Ann Marie and Marlene.

CD ~ "TAMBURITZA SERENADE" ~ Larry Skertich with Vocals by Nick Skertich.
Tamburitza! is a double album collecting a huge number of recordings from the 78 archives of Eastern European music in America. The majority of the recordings were made by groups after having come to America, and there is a bit of a focus in the song selection on the interplay between cultures that came about as a result. However, there's a definite ethnic bent to the sound here, making the old recordings live again as historical artifacts if not as particularly exciting contemporary music. As an added bonus, a fine reworking of Lionel Hampton 's "Hey Ba-Ba-Re-Bop" is included from an attempt at coalescing the cultural styles of the day.
