    Music speaks a universal language and the famous musician Ivo Robić and his record Morgen represent even today the greatest commercial success that a Croatian musician has achieved.

Experience the Opatija of the 50’s and 60’s on the terraces of famous hotels. Try out the karaoke, ride in old cars which still have soul, and enjoy dancing in the charming time machine to the music of Ivo Robic. Take a romantic journey, back to Zagreb and Opatija of the 50s and 60s. Play that song again.

     
    TRADITIONAL DALMATIAN MUSIC - MAKING

    Dalmatia is the cradle of capella singing, a polyphonic and homophonic style of singing  without instruments. Join us in Split where a Dalmatian klapa will welcome you with a few traditional songs. We will also visit Solin, the nursery of Croatian history, and Trogir, where  we will discover klapa “Trogir”. Experience the freedom of these songs which emerged from the popular strata of society as a result of a spiritual state of harmony in the Mediterranean towns of that era.

    The capella style of singing has evolved over time from typical traditional forms of singing (harmony singing) to expertly arranged and organized forms. We will also visit Omiš, where for nearly 50 years a famous Dalmatian Harmony Singing Festival has been held, with its own special atmosphere. You might also want to sing in Brač when you meet some debutant capella singers.
