Klapa

The klapa music is a form of traditional a cappella singing in Dalmatia, Croatia. The word klapa translates as “a group of friends” and traces its roots to littoral church singing. The motifs in general celebrate love, wine (grapes), country (homeland) and sea. Main elements of the music are harmony and melody, with rhythm rarely being important. In 2012 klapa music was inscribed in UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.

Klapa Kartolina is a registered not-for-profit organization dedicated to promote Klapa singing and Croatian culture. Klapa Kartolina are Višnja, Gabriela, Daniela, Bernardica, Zoran, Frank and Dominik.
