Abstract

Political folklore can be regarded through processes of construction of paradigms, and the production of festivals. There is no doubt that folklore, as a national concept and a commercial product, has become a means in the creation of various strategies of power on its path to becoming the national identifier as well as the commercial product in the everlasting confrontation between cultural forms and the ideological formations. The folklore construction in the conventional zones, along with its regulation role in the intangible heritage, as well as during the performing of the folklore performances, establish one complex system of controls, interests and commodities. The most exclusive examples of the folklore tradition’s production are, in effect, various events – festive events that become a significant domestic and tourist phenomena based on their ritual and seasonal journeys. A case study of a Dragačevski sabor trubača (The Trumpet Festival of Dragačevo) is analysed through the zone of national and commercial supervision and representation, leaving behind a deep trace of folklore’s politicising.
