Album Notes
Nick Bratkovich was born in Milwaukee WI in 1951. He is a son of Serbian parents who immigrated to the United States after World War II. He began playing the accordion at age 6 and started his first band at age 13, the popular Šumadija Orchestra of Milwaukee, Wisconsin. He performed with this group throughout the 60's at Serbian churches and ethnic folk festivals in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Ontario, Canada. During the 70's he was a member of the famous Beograd Orchestra of Milwaukee, performing at the Saratoga Lounge on South 16th Street. It was during this time that he expanded his repertoire to include not only Serbian music, but Balkan and International folk music as well. While living in Texas during the 80's, he performed solo for both Serbian and International folk dancers in Dallas, Austin and Houston. He currently lives in Tulsa, Oklahoma with his wife Nancy. They have three grown children living in Texas, Louisiana and Utah. He still performs with the original members of the Šumadija Orchestra, now known as the Kumovi Orchestra of Los Angeles, California, and he also enjoys performing solo for international folk dancers in Wisconsin, Oklahoma, and Texas.

The Lepenica CD is produced by Bratkovich Music of Tulsa OK. All MIDI and acoustic instruments, all vocals, all arrangements, and all orchestrations are performed by Nick Bratkovich. All original compositions are copyrighted and published by Bratkovich Music. The music consists of traditional Serbian music, as well as original compositions. Many of the songs are recognized as favorites by international folk dancers of all nationalities.

Virtuoso Serbian Accordian Music
The selections on this CD are a wonderful depiction of Serbian music including ballads and kolos. If you are interested in hearing the greatest Serbian accordianist in the USA, get this CD. The complex rhythms of Balkan music are handled with ease by Nick. The selections are a combination of traditional and newer Balkan music. Highly recommend!

WOW! This is GREAT Serbian music! It is a very upbeat album that I love dancing to, singing along with, and even working to. I've listened to this CD three times today and I still can't get enough of it.
