“Ethno on the road in Croatia”

Ethno Croatia 2010 gathers musicians and music ensembles from Croatia, Tanzania, Sweden, Denmark, Belgium, France, Armenia and Ecuador. They are lead by experienced mentors – Swedish musician and producer Allan Skrobe and Croatian singer in the “Afion” Ensemble and leader of several choirs Lidija Dokuzović. All participants need to prepare two traditional songs or dances typical of their culture, which they then teach to other participants of the Grožnjan’s camp. The camp is followed by a small tour around Croatia, called Ethno on the Road, ending with a final concert at the International Folklore Festival in Zagreb.
