I'll start with Tako from Belgrade, because they were, basicly, an instrumental band. http://www.progarchives.com/artist.asp?id=884

I like Tako, but my favorite is Fermata. Collegium Musicum is pretty good too.

Yes, they were recorded few tracks with vocals and lyrics. Those tracks I don't like, I considered Tako as an instrumental band. Btw, at that time in ex Yugoslavia it wasn't possible that a record company agreed and make a contract for completly instrumental album of progrock band; I think that 1976 solo debut by Serbian guitarist R.M. Točak is the only one lp which is completly instrumental progrock.

Do you heard Točak, THE best progrock guitarist at Balkans ever?

That's a VERY interesting bit of information right there. Indeed, the songs with vocals are the minority, but isn't like that in most progressive rock bands? I mean, don't the vocals usually have a secondary place in prog rock? I thought that was about the same with this band.

Anyway, this really interesting. It goes to show that, despite giving ""liberties"" to their citizens, the Yugoslav State didn't go without intervening with the cultural aspects of society as in other dictatorial / totalitarian states of the time (such as happened here in Brasil).

Well, Communist party in former Yugoslavia considered that rock music is on  'left' and supported the bands.

Okay, I'm a knucklehead.
 
Add me to the embarassingly long list of Americans who have confused European countries that begin with "S."  Embarrassed
 
Now that I'm on track, though, the only other former Yugoslavian bands that I know from Serbia are Korni Grupa and Igra Staklenih Perli.  I absolutely love Korni GrupaIgra Staklenih Perli is a bit too spacey for me, which isn't my preferred style, but it's still enjoyable.
 
I hadn't heard Tocak's solo material--thanks for the introduction!  I love Smak, and I have Crna Dama and Stranice Naseg Vremana.  Great stuff!  I would love to find the debut and Zasto Ne Volim Sneg.

Maybe you'll like those instrumental tracks from Korni Grupa songwriter and keys player Kornelije Kovač ' solo catalogue; one is prog electronic track from 1977, and another, from 1975, is a nice stuff a la Santana:

There were quite a few rock bands in the west who were lefties themselves, so I guess it made sense. But then again, in the Soviet Union it was considered a degenerate for of music and playing it was punishable by death (depending on the case). Rock and heavy metal in the Sovet Union were not officially considered forms of music intull the mid 80's, if I recall correctly.

Yes, Yugoslavia had a more tolerant regime, and Romanian rock depended heavily on this. Most of the musical education of the youngsters that would form rock bands was done through Yugoslav radio (and to a lesser extent Hungarian radio). That's why so many Romanian bands came from Timisoara, the city from the border with Serbia. LOL
