ruminates about tamburitza and tamburasi, the mind's eye most often
conjures a picture of male musicians playing the various tamburitzas,
but -- as rare as it may seem -- the female gender has had a
long-standing role in the history of tambura. The ladies have excelled
as much as their male counterparts.
"The smiling faces ...
are those of an accomplished group of lady tamburitza players who, under
the name Sarena Orchestra, have paid their dues and present an exciting
brand of music and song as popular as their booking itinerary indicates.
Šarena Orchestra is in demand for their fine musical talent." --

"Šarena, a five-woman tambura band from the
Cleveland area, presented a well-crafted,
fast-paced set. But the most captivating tune
was Marci Coleff's soft and silky rendition of "Moj
Dilbere" (My Beloved), a haunting, old Bosnian
love song from the coffee houses of Sarajevo.
Marci's melancholy voice flowed over a gentle
background tamburitza arrangement that,
thoughtfully, didn't get in the way, creating a
truly magic moment..." -- John Valentich
