Summary/Abstract: The Croatian country people from Jajce to Bila over the centuries wore the same national costumes, varying only in single tiny details in men and women’s dress. Traditional tunes have been preserved in singing by folklore clubs in this region and are types of older or recent polyphone praxis. Heterogeneousness and creativity are expressed in forming strophe-melodiousness and short and long song-sentence. The poetic text is mostly primary, but often the text is subordinated to the expression of the melody. In the article folk clubs in Lašva’s Valley are described as keeping vivid traditional folk memory: Paklarevo, Napredak Novi Travnik and Vitez, KUD “Žena” from Nova Bila, and the most famous ”Sloga” from Guča Gora, also renowned outside Bosnia and Herzegovina.
