Concert: Slovenian ethno music
Some of the best representatives of the Slovenian ethno-music scene, gathered in KED FS, will introduce the repertoire which is characteristic for different Slovenian regions and communities (including the minority ones). The program will cover a range from ritual tunes to the modern ones, it will enable us to hear how the same song sounds in different regions and also render us aware of the connections between Croatian and Slovenian ethno music.
