Gugutke (Slovenia)


"Who says the new generation isn't interested in folk music?"

Druga godba

Passionate ornithologists Nejc and Luka named the group after one of the characteristic bird species of the Balkan Peninsula, which, like the traditional music of this region, is slowly dying out. The five young musicians draw their motives and songs mainly from the rich heritage of Slovenian and Balkan traditional music. They aim to perform their compositions in as primitive a way as possible, with added elements of their personal styles. Their basic starting points are various traditional tunes, dances and solos typical of traditional and Roma artists, though sometimes they also employ tropes from the world of jazz.
