Ojkanje singing from the Vrlika area is truly something uniqe. It is the oldest preserved type of singing in Croatia and as such, it is listed on the UNESCO list of endangered intangible world heritage. Even today, in our modern way of living, Ojkanje singing is being preserved by passing on from one generation to another and lives through people from Vrlika as a strong part of their culture.
Once a year, there is this special festival where Ojkanje singing, Round dance and Vrlika national costume are brought up to the spot light – it is the Večer Pisme, Kola i Narodnih Običaja (Evening of Songs, Round dancing and National Traditions). Tomorrow, July 25, 2015 Vrlika will host this wonderful event and you are all welcome to join the celebrations from 20:00 at the Vrlička Česma (entrance is free).
Amont the folklore association KUU Milan Begović from Vrlika, there will be several others performing in Vrlika tomorrow: HFD Jadro, KUD Podbablje, HKUD Fra Jozo Križić, EU Petrovo polje, KUD Sv. Ilija Kljaci. After the cultural program, the celebrations will continue with the entertainment program by Vatreni poljupci band.
