Staniša Stošić (Станиша Стошић) (1945 – April 7, 2008) was a Serbian folk singer known for melodies from his home region of Vranje in Southern Serbia, which earned him the nickname of "Serbian Pavarotti" and "Father of the southern melodies". His most popular song was Lela Vranjanka.
He sang the first time in Radio Belgrade, 1963, and won the "Zlatiborski narcis" festival in 1966 with the song Stojanke, bela Vranjanke. Lela Vranjanka was recorded in 1972. Its melody is very similar to the instrumental Miserlou by Dick Dale featured in Quentin Tarantino's Pulp Fiction, both being based on the old Middle-Eastern song, Misirlou, whose true origin is difficult to trace.[original research?]
In 2007, he was awarded the Special Lifetime Award by the Serbian Ministry of Culture for his efforts on preserving Serbian music tradition.
