Tanasije Vučić (1888-1931) was a Serbian guslar who followed and entertained the Serbian and Montenegrin army in the Balkan and First World wars.[1]

He is remembered as a popular, modern guslar[2] in the early part of the 20th century with Serbs everywhere including musicologists who came from far and wide to record his epic singing.[3]Most musicologists were acquainted either from what they read or from recording the diction of Tanasije Vučić, the guslar whom linguist Gerhard Gesemann (1888-1948)[4]bought from Montenegro to Prague.[5]Once there, Matija Murko invited Vučić to sing the poem Majka Jugovića for the Seminar for Slavic Philology in Prague. Later, Gesemann invited Vučić to Berlin -- from Montenegro.[6]

Vučić was born in Petnjica in 1888. He came from the Tribes of historical Serbian tribe and region of Drobnjak.[7]
