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

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

He is Macedonian singer, very powerful voice, and not with us. Tose Proeski, only few days before his own ending has talked with a journalist of Kurir regarding himself, his friends and life. Very honest, he claimed that he would never be withhout his friends, he is not choosing some shortcuts to popularity and he is giving everything he can to his parents. He talkede about his plans, living it day by day, with christian values.

What are your immprestions regarding concert on Skopje stadion on October 5th? 

- Concert is the biggest and most beautiful gift they could give to me, my fans. Every fan diserves from you to give your whole self, but as you sing to someone with whome you are your own, it is very special feeling. There are no words to thank my own fans. After concert I can't make clear scenes, emotions are very strong, but I know that it has been unbelivable energy fusion.

I checked them, months ago, when you posted a topic at "Unsigned Bands". Yes, they're good, in my opinion; they would to record a digital album and to put this at amazing Bandcamp.

That the Internet has made it possible, so I can to recommend to you this instrumental EP for free download also: http://tripcycle.bandcamp.com/album/beep" rel="nofollow - http://tripcycle.bandcamp.com/album/beep
 
I hope you will like Tripcycle, a band from Novi Sad, Serbia, because they're very original, such as Fitnes, but different; a lot of fun anyway.

Thanks Svetonio, after giving each one a couple of plays, I find Fitnes was very good, can hear many influences in the guitar playing.  However, I must say that I really enjoyed Tripcycle more.  You are correct, they have an original approach and their style is something that captured me.  Do they have more albums out?
 
I find it interesting or coincidence that each group had a song with a similar title, Spectar and Spektar.  Is there something to that in Serbia?
 
Thanks for mentioning the city they were from, I have not heard of Novi Sad before and searched it in maps today, city on the Danube or Dunav River, quite interesting.

Tripcycle released only Beep EP debut, not full lenght album yet.
 
Glad that you like them! Spektar means *spectrum* in Serbian. We write as we speak, so it's correctly spelled - spektar, no spectar;  as Fitnes is correctly spelled in Serbian, no two *s* as well.
 
I'm going now to recommend you that live jazz/rock album by Belgrade's band Metak Za Zlikovca ( translate "A Bullet For A Criminal"), as part of so called "New Belgrade Scene" and/or "Manekeni Bigza" the project,  for free and legal download (mp3):  http://www.manekenibigza.org/?p=25" rel="nofollow - http://www.manekenibigza.org/?p=25

Thanks Svetonio, after giving each one a couple of plays, I find Fitnes was very good, can hear many influences in the guitar playing.  However, I must say that I really enjoyed Tripcycle more.  You are correct, they have an original approach and their style is something that captured me.  Do they have more albums out?
 
I find it interesting or coincidence that each group had a song with a similar title, Spectar and Spektar.  Is there something to that in Serbia?
 
Thanks for mentioning the city they were from, I have not heard of Novi Sad before and searched it in maps today, city on the Danube or Dunav River, quite interesting.
Tripcycle released only Beep EP debut, not full lenght album yet.
 
Glad that you like them! Spektar means *spectrum* in Serbian. We write as we speak, so it's correctly spelled - spektar, no spectar;  as Fitnes is correctly spelled in Serbian, no two *s* as well.
 
I'm going now to recommend you that live jazz/rock album by Belgrade's band Metak Za Zlikovca ( translate "A Bullet For A Criminal"), as part of so called "New Belgrade Scene" and/or "Manekeni Bigza" the project,  for free and legal download (mp3):  http://www.manekenibigza.org/?p=25" rel="nofollow - http://www.manekenibigza.org/?p=25
 
Also, a young Kikinda's fusion band called Super Confusion deserves to be mentioned in this thread:

http://www.myspace.com/superconfusion" rel="nofollow - http://www.myspace.com/superconfusion
 
Sadly, there's nothing by them at Bandcamp yet..
Thanks again.  I have been listening toMetak Za Zlikovaca and enjoying it, very good.  I also must add that I have been listening to Fitnes a bit more and it has grown on me and like it more than my earlier post.  I did check out the Super Confusion links and is another good jazz/fusion style band.  Hope they release something soon.
 
There seems to be a nice ground swell of new artists in your country, curious as to what the past music of the 70s through 80s or 90s was like in your area?

Some prog-fusion bands from the former Yugoslavia. Leb I Sol is mostly instrumental with some occasional vocals. Besoknachno album by LIS was pretty good too, but it had too much new-wave influence there, so i didn't bother posting it on my channel. DzD is fully instrumental and is a bit similar to LIS. I also have some of Smak's albums on that channel, not gonna link them though, since that band has already been mentioned here.

Thanks for this beautiful theme. I didn't know much about music from that part of the world. SMAK is GREAT! I don't understand language, but never mind. 
This bend Hypnagoga Slike is great too. I found one new good song.

BIRDLAND    "DARKNESS OF LIGHT",  cockers.
 
It is 1980 but sounds 70s fusion.
They had a second lp but its more jazzy.
