There is no place in the world where one can hear music remotely close to our Dalmatian songs. This is only one of the many reasons why it is so appreciated, not only among musicians but among the wider population. The melodies of Dalmatia are one of the trademarks of the Adriatic Sea, reminding us of waves hitting the rocks, the sun that burns our skin and crickets tirelessly chirping their symphony of relaxation. To Dalmatian people, the song is a symbol of life, their history and tradition. The song of a Dalmatian ‘klapa’, or harmony singing group, is a sound of their everyday life, but Dalmatians are not reluctant to modernize their melodies and adjust them to the modern pop expression. Find out how they do it at the Evening of Dalmatian Chanson established in honour of the 700th anniversary of the Šibenik Abbey and the official proclamation of Šibenik as a city.
