Kralj Tomislav Folklore Ensemble - Croatia Tour July 2020

1st July - 17th July 2020 

The folklore ensemble "King Tomislav" has been working with the Croatian Cultural Society - Auckland for 26 years, as one of the largest and most successful promoters of traditional Croat culture in New Zealand. In this project, we especially emphasize the collaboration with the native Maori as well as the singers from the Polynesian islands, where by intertwining the traditions of different immigrants and indigenous people we get an extremely interesting cultural expression, which celebrates the richness of each of them individually, but also our complementarity and common humanity. They spontaneously joined our programs, finding inspiration in a beautiful and melodious Croatian song that enriches their cultures and their solo performances (Te Matatini National Kapa Haka Maori Festival, Polynesian Festival, Festival of Pacific Arts). Entitled "Kia ora Croatia" we are planning a tour of Croatia from 01/07 - 15.07.2020. 50 performers will participate in the program. During the performance, 34 dancers - singers and musicians from FA "King Tomislav", 4 singers of the vocal group "The Shades", and 10 members of the Maori Kapa haka group "Te roopu Manutaki" are proportionally changed and supplemented in 80 minutes of cultural and artistic program.

The program will cover performances in the following cities:

  • 1st to 5th July 2020 solo concerts in and around Zagreb.
  • 6th to 9th July 2020 concerts, Split, Solta, Supetar.
  • 10th to 15th  July 2020 concerts organized by the Festival of the "Sword Games of Korcula" (Vela Luka, Pupnat, Blato and Korcula).
