    Eufrazijeva bazilika, Istarska sabornica (Euphrasian Basilica, Istrian Assembly Hall)

    Annual meeting of choirs

    Ever since 1973, once a year Poreč becomes the venue for the traditional meeting of choruses. This event is exceptional since it focuses on the music of Istria and Primorje as well as chakavian expression. The festival is again and again enriched with new pieces of music composed for ‘Kanat’, adding to its established reputation. Regular prize competitions are a strong incentive for poets and composers, since the best compositions are awarded and announced in special music publications.

With the arrival of a new club in our town, we have the opportunity to do what we know best, and the newly opened Steel club is certainly one of the most serious clubs we've ever crossed in this area", says Ivan Ljutić.

    In their series, they plan to present all current and relevant DJs from the region from house to disco music. Their goal is to select only feel good music and will their best to make You! a synonym for urban entertainment.

  • 9th Beside u jatu



    Literary event of Chakavian poetry

    Literary event of Chakavian poetry

    The meeting of Barban's poets is a one-day event of gathering Barban's poets and presenting the collection „Beside u jatu“. In 2011, for the first time there was a meeting of Barban's poets with the idea and the wish of the organisers to give the people of Barban a possibility to extract poems from their drawers, perhaps written even long ago, maybe just created or for their lyrics to be visible and as chosen, printed in a common collection of songs. It is a wish that this poetic encounter becomes a traditional gathering of Barban's poets. Topics are diverse, depending on the personality, experience, knowledge, environments, and so on views of the world and the way of thinking of poets. It is interesting, and not surprisingly, that love prevails, love in all modalities. Each year, every generation is represented in the meeting, and this really was the intent; that the collection contains the lyrics of Barban's poets of all ages and generations.
