The CHF Department of Culture is launching a new project – to create a central database on all Croatian folklore and tamburitza ensembles and klapa a cappella vocal bands in the Croatian emigrant communities and minority communities in neighbouring countries.
This database will be permanently accessible on the Croatian Heritage Foundation Internet portal, and, when completed, will find a prominent place in the future Croatian Emigrant Museum. These bands, orchestras and klapa will also be presented in print in our monthly Matica magazine as the data arrives.
The database on Croatian folklore and tamburitza ensembles and klapa will serve – as both address book and signpost – for communication between Croatian associations around the world, including associations in the homeland, and as a means of establishing collaboration, exchanges, tours and various kinds of expert and friendly assistance.
We invite folklore and tamburitza ensembles and klapa a cappella vocal bands in the Croatian emigrant communities and minority communities in neighbouring countries to collaborate with us on this project.

1. A COLOUR PHOTO OF YOUR ENSEMBLE OR KLAPA (with a resolution greater than 250 pix/inch)
