Folk Musical Instruments in Bosnia and Herzegovina gives a complex and complete overview of traditional practice, for the first time, concerning traditional folk instruments on the territory of Bosnia and Herzegovina. The first part of the book describes historical sources and the research of folk musical instruments in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The research of history is one of the starting points in the process of organological research and covers careful research of historical documents, photographs, sketches, audio recordings and works based on historical data. In the next four parts of the book, traditional folk instruments in Bosnia and Herzegovina are presented. The book is divided into several parts according to instrumental groups: Idiophones (Part 2), Membranophones (Part 3), Chordophones (Part 4) and Aerophones (Part 5). In each of these sections, the instruments are described separately with special attention given to terminology, ergology, the technology of instrument-making, techniques of playing and musical capabilities and repertoire.

The sixth part of the book is devoted to instrument makers and players of traditional folk instruments, the functions and occasions of playing, and the tradition, innovations and distribution of folk musical instruments in Bosnia and Herzegovina.
