After the stunning response given the Dalmatian singers from Hvar some weeks back, we are following up with music from the ancient secular tradition from Croatia featuring stunning male part-songs


NOTE: Both recordings featured in this program are of the a cappella male Croatian folk song tradition known as Klapa singing. The two are titled Novaljo, Novaljo with the Klapa Navalia singers, and Fire on the Sea, and feature the ensemble Klapa Fortunal.

Both are produced by Nenad Bach, who can be reached via e-mail:
