Konjanik = The Rider on horseback
The WPA California Folk Music Project
“Konjanik = The Rider on horseback” by Peter Boro
This recording forms part of the WPA California Folk Music Project, which was a New Deal ethnographic field collection of song and sound documenting the music and lives of California immigrants, Dust Bowl refugees, as well as decedents of the men and women that were the first to settle the northern rural region of the state.
On May 7, 1939, Peter Boro (pictured) performed Croatian music on the gusle and misnice for music collecter Sidney Robertson Cowell in San Mateo, California.
