In the eastern part of Croatia, Slavonia, the basic dance form is a closed wheel dance, which is often performed with the accompaniment of the string instrument called ‘tambura samica’. Improvised texts of a cheerful and comic character, in which men and women outwit each other, are sung in a circle. An indispensable part of most life and annual customs, of every celebration and merriment, a kind of trademark of Slavonia and the whole of Šokadia is a so-called bećarac – decasyllabic rhyming couplet. In 2011, UNESCO included Bećarac in the Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
