My grandmother that’s from Serbia (my baba) used to play an instrument when she was in church called the Tamburica. She was the only one in our family to play an instrument. I knew she would really like to hear someone else in the family play something so I chose the banjo. I love America and I love its vast history and being Serbian-American I wanted an instrument that would represent my American side. Once I picked up the banjo I fell in love with it. I love the sound, the fast pace music you can play, and I also love the storytelling that the songs give off. I play clawhammer and two finger and I love to play songs like Pretty Polly and my favorite, Wild Bill Jones.
