opposed these measures, as well as the ratification of Kosovo's parliament in 1990 which returned the level of Kosovo's autonomy to how it had been sixteen years earlier. Until the beginning of the 1970s, Serbian rock bands released only 7" singles and extended plays. Korni Grupa was the first Serbian rock act to release a full-length album, in 1971, and one of the first bands to move towards progressive rock. Progressive and acoustic rock dominated the Serbian rock scene during the 1970s, with a part of bands incorporating elements of traditional music into their sound. At this period, bands like YU grupa and Smak achieved large mainstream popularity and massive album sales. The end of the 1970s featured the appearance of the prominent hard rock band Riblja Čorba, and the emergence of the closely associated punk rock (Punk in Yugoslavia) and New Wave scene (New Wave music in Yugoslavia)s. Pekinška Patka was the first Serbian punk rock band to release an album, in 1980. The New Wave bands Šarlo Akrobata, Električni Orgazam and Idoli, which appeared on the influential compilation album ''Paket aranžman'' in 1980, were followed by a large number of New Wave acts. Around 1982, with the rising tensions in Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo, New Wave scene declined. During the 1980s, pop rock acts, such as Đorđe Balašević and Bajaga i Instruktori, dominated the mainstream scene, but various other rock genres also emerged, and the alternative rock scene, with the acts such as Ekatarina Velika, Disciplina Kičme, and Rambo Amadeus, started to develop and gain mainstream popularity. Mid 1980s At the beginning of 1983 Bijelo dugme recorded a children's music album ''A milicija trenira strogoću! (i druge pjesme za djecu)'' (''And Police Trains Strictness! (and Other Songs for Children)''). The lyrics for the album were written by Duško Trifunović. It was initially planned Seid Memić Vajta (Seid Memić) to sing the vocals, but eventually, vocals were recorded by the eleven year old Ratimir Boršić Rača (Ratimir Boršić), and the album was released under Ratimir Boršić Rača & Bijelo dugme moniker. In February 1983 the band released the album ''Uspavanka za Radmilu M.'' (''Lullaby for Radmila M.''). Bregović intended to release ''Uspavanka za Radmilu M.'' as Bijelo dugme's farewell album and to dismiss the band after the tour. The album was recorded in Skopje and featured Vlatko Stefanovski (guitar), Blagoje Morotov (double bass) and Arsen Ereš (saxophone) as guest musicians. The song "Kosovska" (''"Kosovan"'') featured Albanian language lyrics and, although featuring simple rock music-related lyrics, became provocative as it was recorded during delicate political situation in Kosovo (Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo). Songs "Ako možeš zaboravi" (''"Forget, if You Can"''), "U vrijeme otkazanih letova" (''"At the Time of Cancelled Flights"''), "Polubauk kruži poluevropom" and "Ovaj ples dame biraju" (''"Lady's Choice"'') featured different sound, illustrating various fazes in the band's career. The album title track is the only instrumental track Bijelo dugme ever recorded. Although ''Uspavanka za Radmilu M.'' did not bring numerous hits as the band's previous releases and is generally considered the least successful Bijelo dugme album, the tour was very successful, and audience's response made Bregović change his mind. After the tour the band went on a hiatus and Bebek recorded his second solo album ''Mene tjera neki vrag''. He officially left the band on April 23, 1984, deciding to dedicate himself to his solo career. Decline As the New Wave perished in the beginning of the 1980s, some of the bands split or took different musical directions. The period around 1982 is considered especially crucial concerning the decline of the New Wave in Yugoslavia. There were several other reasons why the Yugoslav New Wave started to fade beside the notable general decline of the New Wave around the world: the economical crisis in Yugoslavia in the first half of the 1980s (see: Economy of the Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) and the political instability, especially in the Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo in 1981 after Josip Broz Tito's death. Also, the musical genres such as post-punk, darkwave and gothic rock, as well as New Romantic and synth-pop already saw a great expansion around the world, including Yugoslavia too. '''Kosovafilmi''' was a film production, distribution and screening company in Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo, Yugoslavia (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia). Established on February 20, 1969. Its first general director was Abdurrahman Shala. The following directors were Azem Shkreli, in which period the best movies of Kosovafilm were produced, also Xhevat Qorraj and Ekrem Kryeziu. The actual director of Kosovafilm is Gani Mehmetaj. The Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo was established in 1974 with a high degree of autonomy within the Socialist Republic of Serbia. This autonomy was curtailed by constitutional amendments in 1989, resulting in mass protests by Kosovar Albanians, many of whom were arrested by the then-Yugoslav authorities. This resulted in a declaration of a state of emergency in February 1990 and the resignation of the Provincial Council of Ministers in May. In the 1980s, Albanian (Albanians) secessionist movements in the Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo, Socialist Republic of Serbia, led to the repression of the Albanian majority in Serbia's southern province. *** Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (1945–1963)) (1944–1963), Socialist Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (1963–1990), Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (Vojvodina) (1990–1992) *** Autonomous Region of Kosovo and Metohija (Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija (1946–1974)) (1945–1974), Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo (1974–1990), Autonomous Province of Kosovo (History of Kosovo) (1990–1992) ** People's Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina) (1945–1963), Socialist Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (1963–1990), Republic of Bosnia and Herzegovina (1990–1992)

Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo

The '''Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo''' ( ; often abbreviated '''SAP Kosovo'''), comprising the Kosovo region (Kosovo (region)), was one of the two autonomous provinces (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia#Federal subjects) of Serbia (Socialist Republic of Serbia) within Yugoslavia (Socialist Federal Republic of Yugoslavia) (the other being Vojvodina (Socialist Autonomous Province of Vojvodina)), between 1946 and the breakup of Yugoslavia.

Between 1946 and 1963 the province was named the '''Autonomous District of Kosovo and Metohija''', and enjoyed a lower level of self-government than the Autonomous Province of Vojvodina (Socialist Autonomous Province of Vojvodina). Between 1963 and 1974, when the province was granted equal status with Vojvodina, the province was accordingly named the '''Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija'''. In 1974 the two autonomous provinces of Vojvodina and Kosovo were granted significantly increased autonomy, and added the prefix "Socialist" to their full official names, the Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija was at that point renamed to the '''Socialist Autonomous Province of Kosovo''', in addition dropping the reference to Metohija from its name. Fifteen years later, during the breakup of Yugoslavia, the 1974 reforms were reversed and the province was restored to its 1963–74 name (Autonomous Province of Kosovo and Metohija).
