trobenta

Translation: trumpet [noun, f]

Trobenta can be heard in many bands that play Slovenian folk music. However, harmonika (accordion) is probably most often associated with this type of music.

Examples:

Rad poslušam jazz. Še posebej mi je všeč zvok trobente.
(I like to listen to jazz. I especially like the sound of a trumpet.)

Trobenta, klarinet, bobni… Potrebujemo samo še pevca, pa imamo skupino!
(Trumpet, clarinet, drums… We only need a singer and we have a band!)

Trobentica je znanilka pomladi.
(Primrose is a herald of spring.)

Phrases:

Ne trobentaj!
(Don’t talk nonsense!)

glasbenik – musician
trobilo – brass instrument
trobentica – primrose

Extra:

Primrose is not named “trobentica” by coincident. Early in spring, when you’re walking in a park or a garden, pick up one primrose blossom and blow through its stalk. Did you hear it?
