July 25, 2020 – On July 23, a fabulous jazz concert by ZZ Quartet was held at the Kamicak Fortress, organized by the Sinj Tourist Board and the Sinj Cultural and Artistic Center, with the support of the City of Sinj.

In the unique and beautiful ambiance of the Kamicak Fortress, we witnessed a real ambient and musical spectacle under the starry sky, a virtuoso performance of top jazz musicians from the ZZ Quartet consisting of Simone Zanchini, Ratko Zjaca, Martin Gjakonovski and Joze Zadravec.


Thanks to the rich tangible and intangible cultural heritage, as well as a number of diverse cultural events, Sinj and the Cetina region have long been engraved in golden letters on the tourist map of Croatia. Thanks to the pursuit of sustainable tourism, the coexistence of carefully designed activities that are equally enjoyed by both hosts and guests, events in the Alkar city always attract attention and a growing audience.

An example of such events is the concerts at the Kamicak Fortress. Concerts of classical, but also traditional and jazz music are organized at the authentic and unique fortress with a beautiful stage under the open sky. Such an approach popularizes these, perhaps somewhat neglected, musical expressions, and where better than in Sinj, a city of rich musical tradition.


The Sinj Tourist Board has been organizing successful and extremely well-attended concerts for several years through the Musical Evenings in Kamicak program. The following concerts have been held at this authentic location so far: Academic Accordion Orchestra “Ivan Goran Kovacic”, Sara Reinar, Jazz swing quintet “Repassage”, Wind Quintet “Kalamos”, unique percussion ensemble “Sudar Percussion”, ethno musician Dunja Knebl with Kololir, ethno group Veja, Nocturnal 4., and organized by KUS – Ethno Kamicak festival, which was not held this year due to the epidemiological situation.

All performances have been well received, and the ambiance of the fortress under the stars proved to be a hit on Wednesday.

This year, following the recommendations of the Civil Protection Headquarters and the CNIPH, the best of jazz music was presented to the concert attendees by world-renowned performers, Simone Zanchini, Ratko Zjaca, Martin Gjakonovski and Joze Zadravec. The enthusiasm of the audience could not be hidden. The performers and the audience enjoyed a truly unique musical spectacle.


The Sinj Tourist Board thanks everyone who helped bring this concert to life, as well as everyone who attended and adhered to all recommended measures. For all those who couldn’t make it, the local Hit radio will broadcast a recording of the concert.
