Where? Kamfest Festival, Kamnik (stage “Pr ‘Goslač”)

21:30 – Duo Mann & Juula (EST)

Maria Mänd (EST) – violin

Juuli Kõrre (EST) – violin

The friendship between Estonian violinists Mario Mänd and Juuli Kõrre began in kindergarten. However, the duo was formed only recently when both girls landed in traditional music. Since then, they have given many concerts and received the award for the best young folk group in Estonia. They are dedicated to playing the tunes from the greatest Estonian violinists, to which they inspire new freshness. On the other hand, the folk music also inspired them to write their own tunes, which represent a darker contrast to the traditional ones. The duo offers a journey through Estonian music to dancers as well as intimate listeners.

Around 22:15 follows Fidde Gang Jam – an audiophile exhibition of musical journeys that will take you into the world of Serbian, Romanian, transatlantic and Swedish melodies. It is performed by a 10-member ensemble of participants in the “Balkan Fiddle Gate” workshops, which run in parallel with Kamfest in the Mekinje Monastery.

Godalkanje was created right on Kamfest Festival in 2010. After that, violin groups toured in Kamnik again in 2014 and 2020. In all these years, over a hundred young musicians of all ages joined the event, and the repertoire of some has grown into hundreds of traditional tunes from different regions. Sharing music with the audience has always been the main motto of Bojan Cvetrežnik, the founder of Godalkanje. Thus, at this year’s festival, a real acoustic exhibition of musical journeys will take place. It will take you to the worlds of traditional violin sounds of various European regions. The main square in Kamnik will be the spot where we can sit and travel away with the melodies carried by the violin orchestra from seven countries.

Leave your expectations before the checkpoint, otherwise they will be confiscated!

Concerts and music exhibitions ‘Fiddle Gang Jam’ were prepared by international curators who are also mentors of Godalkanje at the ‘Balkan Fiddle Gate‘ seminar, which run in parallel with the Kamfest festival in the Mekinje Monastery.

The events are co-produced by the Kamfest Festival and the Society for ONE Music, and co-financed by the City of Ljubljana.
