Another contribution by Tatjana Marković, this time she reports from the symposium Research of Dance and Music on the Balkans:

The first meeting of the newly-established Association of the Balkan Music and Dance that was held in December 6-9 in Brčko, Bosnia, under the auspices of the International Musicological Society. Namely, the IMS has been fostered both study groups focused on specific topics (such as, for instance, Cantus planus, Musical iconography in European art, Musicology and computers) as well as wider regional groups of scholars. The latter groups include three associations, related to the Baltic countries, the Eastern Slavic countries (Russia, Ukraine, Moldova), and now also the Balkans.

The first international conference dedicated to the Balkan Music and Dance was organized by the International Musicological Society, the Musicological Society of Republika Srpska in Banja Luka, the Musicological Society of Bosnia and Herzegovina in Sarajevo, and the Association for Fostering Serbian Cultural-Historical Heritage Baštinar in Brčko. Twenty-one proceedings (see below) in English were edited by Dimitrije Golemović and published before the conference, presenting the result of research traditional, classical, popular music, and also music institutions from Bosnia and Herzegovina, Republika Srpska, Serbia, Macedonia, Bulgaria as well as from Greece.

Following the usual and undoubtedly the most conventional (self)presentation of the Balkans, the papers were dedicated mainly to folk music and its transpositions in popular or so-called "newly-composed traditional music", classical, rock, by ethnomusicologists, ethnochoreologists, and musicologists. Variety of topics assumed also different methodologies, ranging from historical surveys, positivistic descriptions, to the structuralist and postmodern approaches:

The next conference of the Association of the Balkan Music and Dance will be organized in November 2008 in Belgrade, by the International Musicological Society, the Serbian Musicological Society, in collaboration with the Departments of Musicology and Ethnomusicology of the Faculty of Music, University of Arts in Belgrade. The challenging topic Folklore as a "Vehicle"? should provide not only different ethno/musicological perspectives, but also reconsidering the key question of the Balkan music identity.
