Christmas carols set the tone in Dubrovnik

Written by  Nov 27, 2016

The renowned Dubrovnik vocal group “Klapa Kaše” performed this morning at 11.00am in front of the St. Blaise Church and in the centre of the Old City of Dubrovnik as part of the 2016 Dubrovnik Winter Festival.

The group sung traditional Christmas Carols, known as Kolende, to the gathered locals and tourists. The Sunday sunshine had brought many people out onto the streets of the Old City and the performance attracted plenty of attention.

The tradition of singing “Kolende” in Dubrovnik is believed to stretch back to the 13th century and is still alive today. Singers go from home to home and celebrate Christmas Eve, as well as Christmas day and New Year. Usually the singers take instruments, such as guitars, harmonica and mandolin, with them.
