Orkestar Zabava


zabavaOrkestar Zabava was formed in 1993 with the intent of providing music primarily for dance entertainment in Pittsburgh 's ethnic community; however, over the years, Zabava has become known as being more than just a kolo orchestra. Although two members have written and composed their own music, the band's intent is to preserve songs composed in Eastern Europe and passed through the generations. Orkestar Zabava has no cultural or ethnic ties – their repertoire consists of songs and dances from Croatia , Serbia , Bosnia , Macedonia Bulgaria and Ukraine . Since forming in 1993, Zabava has appeared many times in the Pittsburgh community for receptions, picnics, private parties, banquets and weddings. Zabava has also traveled to Detroit several times for church functions, receptions and picnics and has also performed for a Slavic festival in San Francisco . In addition to performing at these events, Orkestar Zabava has attended the Tamburitzan Extravaganza for several years now and has performed in Milwaukee , Pittsburgh , Reno , Steelton, New Orleans and Chicago .
