57 IFF - “Kak zvon je KAJ grmelo”, Cinkuši
July 23, 2023, European Square
As the basis of their music, the Cinkuši use the rich traditional heritage of Croatia, mostly from the Kajkavian speaking area, into which they interpolate the author’s approach and literary models and even clichés that awaken collective emotionality. They are an excellent example of “translating” traditional songs into explosive parts of punk, freak-folk, brilliant ballads or subtle combinations of waltz and cabaret with a touch of neo-folk underground. They are completely open to many metamorphoses of rock, psychedelic, jazz to traces of expressive and even chamber music…

In addition to the standard instruments of a punk rock band, there are also tambourines and sometimes violins. Some compare them to local Flogging Molly, while they are not far from Mumford and the Sons either. Ballads, jumps, push-ups, landings, choral singing, bursts of energy, sweat and tears are part of every performance of Ogenj…

50.IFF - 2016 Indonesian and Shrilankan traditional music concert
Thanks to refinement of their music and dance traditions, along with cultural, language, ethnic and religious diversity of communities that inherit them, two island countries in South and South East Asia — Sri Lanka and Indonesia — have been for centuries the object of fascination of the Western world. Long-standing exchanges with Europe and other parts of the world, although under the colonial relationships, the differences in work and life from one island to another, and between rural and urban environments, have also contributed to cultural diversity. Today, however, due to growing social networking, compression of time and space, migration, travel and social alliances created out of shared affi nities, we witness the process of commuting the former distant, far-off cultural practices into our own immediate experiences. Musics that ring in the imagination the ocean and wave the tea plantations have been thus anchored elsewhere, including Slovenia and Croatia, Ljubljana and Zagreb.

48TH IFF - 2014 WORLD MUSIC CONCERTS
Although ethno / world music concerts – ethno being a synonym of a sort of the more known international term world music – have been a regular part of the International Folklore Festival Zagreb only since 1997, their real beginning was the concert „Nadahnute baštinom/Inspired by Heritage“ which, at the 28th International Folklore Festival Zagreb, presented the work of singers Lidija Bajuk and Dunja Knebl. The same year, 1994, independently from the Festival, the Ethnoambient Live concert took place in the Zagreb club Gjuro II, where the originators of a sort of the Croatian ethno scene presented themselves to the Zagreb audience – Lidija Bajuk, Dunja Knebl, Andrija Maronić and the band Legen. This concert marked the beginning of a systematic use of the term ethno for denoting the music of these musicians, and later all music which was, in its approach, sound and inspiration, similar to theirs. The specific quality of the term „ethno music“ lies in the fact that the musicians themselves consciously chose it to describe their work, i.e. to emphasize the difference from other (earlier, but also contemporary) approaches to the interpretation and presentation of Croatian traditional music.

Istrian musicians were among pioneers of the development of ethno-music (world music) in Croatia. Led by a desire to revive the dying layers of tradition, but also by belief that tradition is a living and changeable organism, and by a critical attitude towards the established models of public practice of folklore, ensembles such as “Istranova”, which performed at the IFF as early as 1985, paved the way in the 1980s to diverse reinterpretations of heritage within modern musical expressions.

WORLD MUSIC CONCERTS ON 42ND IFF - 2008
The title of this year’s world music concert, coined from the words dialect and ethno, discloses its other component – dialect. Relying on one of the topics of this year’s Festival – the one dedicated to Croatian dialects and local speeches – ethno music with kajkavian features has been made the centre of the concert. Precisely the kajkavian dialect music was the starting point of inspiration for musicians who in 1994 became the founders of the Croatian ethno / world music scene.
This year the opportunity to present their music to the European audience has been given to a group of young musicians called Body, Mind & Soul from the town of Mzuzu, northern Malawi. Their performance at the International Folklore Festival Zagreb will present the outcome of their musical explorations a unique musical style which they call voodjazz and describe as a subtle mix of traditional rhythms with a jazzy feel, a musical bridge between Malawian cultures past and present.
