Ethno Croatia" is a Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI) project through which young people learn about traditional music from each other and with the help of mentors and deepen their knowledge about their own musical traditions, as well as the legacy of other cultures whose heirs participate in this international camp. Through learning about the musics of others, these young people also learn about equality, tolerance and democracy.

Ethno Croatia will, in the period from July 9 to July 20, 2018, gather young musicians from all around the world at International Cultural Centre Jeunesses Musicales Croatia in Grožnjan, where they socialize and learn from each other about the music from the countries they come from. This year, the camp feature musicians from 8 countries: Sweden, Estonia, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Algeria, Croatia and Portugal.

Ethno Croatia proudly presents this year’s artistic director Anna Möller, one of the leaders of the contemporary Swedish folk scene. Möller grew up in a famous Swedish music family with solid roots in tradition, and is successfully moving the boundaries and actively participating in the creation of the Swedish/world new ethno music. She is an active member of the bands Kolonien and Världens Band.

This year, Anna Möller will be joined by Pedro Prata from Potrugal as her assistant teacher. Prata is a passionate player of various traditional Mediterranean string instruments.

The chief coordinator of this year’s camp is Nenad Kovačić.

The participants will present their repertoire at 5 concerts: July 15 – Grožnjan; July 16 – Solin; July 17 – Gornja Stubica; July 18 – Zagreb; July 19 – Slavonski Brod

“E

thno Croatia is a project of the Jeunesses Musicales International (JMI) which encourages young people to educate each other about traditional music and, with the help of mentors, broaden and deepen their knowledge of their own musical culture, as well as the legacy of other cultures whose heirs are taking part in this international camp. Through learning about the musical traditions of others, young participants are gaining knowledge about equality, tolerance and democracy. In the period from July 9th to July 19 th 2017, Ethno Croatia brings young musicians together at the International Cultural Center of JMC in Grožnjan. Young people from all over the world (Belgium, Denmark, Croatia, Sweden, Estonia, Zimbabwe, Spain, Finland, Jordan, Chile, England etc.) spend time with each other and learn about the music of the countries they hail from. After partaking in workshops filled with music, dancing and socializing, the participants leave the picturesque Grožnjan and go on the Ethno on the Road tour. This year’s tour includes several Croatian towns (Grožnjan, Gornja Stubica, Slavonski Brod and Zagreb) and two festivals: Jazz is Back – BP 2017 in Grožnjan and the 51st International Folklore Festival in the Croatian capital – Zagreb.

 

Ethno Croatia is proud to present this year’s art director Ernesto Calderon Dondero from Chile, an outstanding and experienced musician who teaches students and helps them with studying, arranging and creating music.

 

Ernesto Calderon Dondero (Valparaíso, Chile, 1984) graduated at the Instituto de Música at Pontificia Universidad Catolica de Valparaíso in 2006, earning the title of music pedagogue. He continued his education in Scotland, where he studied the accordion in the class of Sandy Brechin. After returning to Chile, Dondero continued his accordion studies in the class of professor Ignacio Hernandez and later on in France, where he worked with Frederic Deschamps. Since 2012, he has also been active as a composer and conductor with the Ensemble Transatlántico de Folk Chileno , an orchestra that plays music based on the rhythms of the Chilean tradition, with 30 members in Chile and 20 abroad. The orchestra has performed in the USA, Spain, Belgium, Germany, Croatia, the Czech Republic, the UK, Denmark, Sweden and India. Ernesto started his journey in Ethno projects as a participant in 2010 ( Ethno Scotland 2010, Ethno Croatia 2014, Ethno Flanders 2014, Ethno Germany 2014). Since 2015, he has been active as a mentor ( TradInEthno & Ethno Flanders (2015), Ethno India (2016)) and founded the ChilEthno Camp (2015, 2016, 2017) with the support of the Chilean Arts Council.

“Ethno on the road in Croatia”

Ban Jelacic Square, Wednesday, 20. 7. 2016. at 20.00

“E

thno on the road in Croatia” has been realised for some years already by the International Folklore Festival in co-operation with the summer ethno-music camp Ethno Croatia for young people in Grožnjan, as a segment of the Jeunesses Musicales International network of similar camps in Africa, Australia and Europe. The fundamental idea of the camps is the exchange of experiences and knowledge of music through mutual learning and teaching between young musicians from various countries. Each participant prepares two traditional songs or two dances from their own culture, which they then teach to the other participants during the camp’s duration. Deepening their knowledge of their own and other musics, young people also learn about the value of equality and tolerance between peoples and nations.

Ethno Croatia 2016. includes musicians from Croatia, Serbia, Estonia, Germany, Dennmark, Ireland, England and Australia. They are conducted by Maise Greenwood, violinist from UK, and Swedish musician, producer and music pedagogue Allan Skrobe.

Indonesian and Shrilankan traditional music concert / 'Where music and dance ring the ocean and wave the tea plantations'

Zagreb Cance Center, Ilica 10, Thursday, 21. 7. 2016. at 21.00

T

hanks to refinement of their music and dance traditions, along with cultural, language, ethnic and religious diversity of communities that inherit them, two island countries in South and South East Asia — Sri Lanka and Indonesia — have been for centuries the object of fascination of the Western world. Long-standing exchanges with Europe and other parts of the world, although under the colonial relationships, the differences in work and life from one island to another, and between rural and urban environments, have also contributed to cultural diversity. Today, however, due to growing social networking, compression of time and space, migration, travel and social alliances created out of shared affi nities, we witness the process of commuting the former distant, far-off cultural practices into our own immediate experiences. Musics that ring in the imagination the ocean and wave the tea plantations have been thus anchored elsewhere, including Slovenia and Croatia, Ljubljana and Zagreb. They are featured in this concert. In the ensemble ‘Lasanthi’, the leading musician is Lasanthi Manaranjanie Kalinga Dona, who from the late 2000s lives in Ljubljana and since 2013 collaborates with four local musicians, nurturing the music traditions of Sri Lanka, her homeland. The ensemble ‘Terbangun Matahari’, established last year under the aegis of the Embassy of the Republic of Indonesia, is dedicated to Javanese gamelan and consists mostly of students from the Music Academy in Zagreb. There is an additional parallel — both the leader of the ensemble ‘Lasanthi’ and two members of the ‘Terbangun Mataharija’ connect their performing pursuit with ethnomusicological work.

A

lthough ethno / world music concerts – ethno being a synonym of a sort of the more known international term world music – have been a regular part of the International Folklore Festival Zagreb only since 1997, their real beginning was the concert „Nadahnute baštinom/Inspired by Heritage“ which, at the 28th International Folklore Festival Zagreb, presented the work of singers Lidija Bajuk and Dunja Knebl. The same year, 1994, independently from the Festival, the Ethnoambient Live concert took place in the Zagreb club Gjuro II, where the originators of a sort of the Croatian ethno scene presented themselves to the Zagreb audience – Lidija Bajuk, Dunja Knebl, Andrija Maronić and the band Legen. This concert marked the beginning of a systematic use of the term ethno for denoting the music of these musicians, and later all music which was, in its approach, sound and inspiration, similar to theirs. The specific quality of the term „ethno music“ lies in the fact that the musicians themselves consciously chose it to describe their work, i.e. to emphasize the difference from other (earlier, but also contemporary) approaches to the interpretation and presentation of Croatian traditional music.

WORLD MUSIC CONCERT

"Ethno Istria" - 2009

Istrian musicians were among pioneers of the development of ethno-music (world music) in Croatia. Led by a desire to revive the dying layers of tradition, but also by belief that tradition is a living and changeable organism, and by a critical attitude towards the established models of public practice of folklore, ensembles such as “Istranova”, which performed at the IFF as early as 1985, paved the way in the 1980s to diverse reinterpretations of heritage within modern musical expressions.

The title of this year's world music concert, coined from the words dialect and ethno, discloses its other component – dialect. Relying on one of the topics of this year's Festival – the one dedicated to Croatian dialects and local speeches – ethno music with kajkavian features has been made the centre of the concert. Precisely the kajkavian dialect music was the starting point of inspiration for musicians who in 1994 became the founders of the Croatian ethno / world music scene.
