Faroski Kantaduri

Faroski Kantaduri is a group of traditional singers from the island Hvar, across the Croatian coast. With their historically informed interpretations the ensemble managed to earn a very strong reputation in the field of world music. The religious songs sung by them are an echo of an age-old past, but even today they still reverberate during processions and services in the coastal villages of Dalmatia.

Faroski Kantaduri will execute the traditional chants for the periods of Lent and Holy Week. According to a papal privilege from 1248 the Slavonic people at the Adriatic Sea were allowed to use, next to Latin, also their local vernacular and Glagolitic (Old Slavonic) for the Roman rite. Due to this privilege this impressive repertory has managed to survive till today.
