About klapa singing: 
If someone wanted to exemplify the most Dalmatian, or the most Mediterranean of music phenomena, he would probably mention a capella or „klapa“ singing. UNESCO agreed, when they added this traditional multi-vocal form to the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity list.
Klapa literally translates as “a group of friends”, coming together pour out in song the good and the bad life has to give, the emotions and the history of the region.
To enjoy this traditional form you don't need to understand the Croatian language. The human voice is the most wonderful and versatile of all music instruments. If you immerse yourself into the harmony of klapa singers and the rhythm of the words, your soul will be healed, your mind eased and your heart filled.
