“Ethno on the road in Croatia”

“thno on the road in Croatia” has been realised for some years already by the International Folklore Festival in co-operation with the summer ethno-music camp Ethno Croatia for young people in Grožnjan, as a segment of the Jeunesses Musicales International network of similar camps in Africa, Australia and Europe. The fundamental idea of the camps is the exchange of experiences and knowledge of music through mutual learning and teaching
between young musicians from various countries. Each participant prepares two traditional songs or two dances from their own culture, which they then teach to the other participants during the camp’s duration. Deepening their knowledge of their own and other musics, young people also learn about the value of equality and tolerance between peoples and nations.
Ethno Croatia 2016. includes musicians from Croatia, Serbia, Estonia, Germany, Dennmark, Ireland, England and Australia. They are conducted by Maise Greenwood, violinist from UK, and Swedish musician, producer and music pedagogue Allan Skrobe.
