October 18, 2020 – Nine klapas from four continents will perform on Sunday, October 18 at 3 pm (Croatia time) in the ONLINE LIVE SHOW program – Klape Worldwide on Facebook.
This special virtual concert will feature klapa singers who live and reside in Munich, Buenos Aires, South Africa, Stuttgart, Frankfurt, Windsor, New York and Santiago. The following klapas will perform: men’s klapas Croatia München (Germany), BA (Buenos Aires, Argentina), Astoria (New York, USA), Ova Klapa (Johannesburg, South African Republic), Frankfurt (Germany), mixed klapa Kartolina (Windsor, Canada), and women’s klapas Valovi (Buenos Aires, Argentina), Snaga (Santiago, Chile), and Filiae Croatiae (Stuttgart, Germany).
Mijo Stanić, director of the Festival of Dalmatian Klapas Omiš will deliver a special message to all performers while the concert will end with a song performed by the famous tenor Vladimir Garić from the klapa Cambi. The entire program will last about 90 minutes and is hosted by Romano Sole. The idea of networking the klapa song on the Internet came from Dubravko Šunjerga from the klapa Croatia Munich, who also wants to send a message that the klapa song and the Croatian cultural heritage are preserved abroad. Although separated by huge distances, emigrant klapas communicate with each other, exchange music and help each other. Most of all, they are happy to host our music leaders and klapas from whom they can learn and exchange valuable experiences.
