Vranjanski Čoček is a instrumental piece from Yugoslavian times, when Tito actively included music from all minorities in his country into the repertoire of folk ensembles. Although written and in those days performed by white musicians, they made efforts to include Gypsy Romany music elements into it. The dance also has elements of 'Gypsy' including costumes and tambourines.
This piece is in a Balkan 9/8 rhythm. This arrangement has two parts for two melody instruments and accompaniment chords.
This version is for Bb instruments (Bb clarinet, soprano and tenor sax). The chords are for C instruments, suitable for accompaniment by a guitar, accordion or similar.
