where? Hotel Špica, Laško

You are invited to the final concert of the five-day Godalkanje workshops in Laško which is also the last concert at the 12th Romanica Antiqua Laško Festival.

When? Sunday, June 13, 2021 at 6 p.m.

Where? Kongresni trg, Ljubljana

What? Concert of Godalkanje at the festival Junij in Ljubljana (Junij v Ljubljani).

Godalkanje is an educational sandbox in the field of various violin styles of playing the violin under the direction of Bojan Cvetrežnik and Barja Drnovšek. In Slovenia, which is in the anteroom of the Balkans and Western Europe, the phenomenon of performing violin expressions from different regions has emerged – from Bulgaria and Serbia to Sweden, France, Ireland … Instead of exaggerated arrangements, you will hear the primal energy of European music enriched with rock’n’roll attitude. You will hear the band Slovenian Fiddle Gang, which took the breath away of audiences in Luxembourg, Belgium, Italy, Spain, Serbia, Germany and of course in Slovenia in the last two years before the epidemic. It consists of teenagers who have dedicated their lifestyle to music. The youngest ones will also perform at the concert – Namuznjeni Godalkarji. A feast for the ears and the heart!

The event is co-financed by the City of Ljubljana.

When? 25th – 29th June 2021

Where? Laško

For whom? For all the string players.

Required level of prior knowledge: sovereign performance of the repertoire for the 2nd grade of lower music school. We hope that this year, immediately after the end of the school year, we will be able to carry out Godalkanje in Laško. The workshops are being held as part of the Romanica Antiqua festival for the eighth year in a row. The mentors will be Bojan Cvetrežnik and Barja Drnovšek. Since one generation of Godalkanje students is going to courses at a higher level of difficulty, this year is a particularly good time to join new participants (of course, the “old” will not be bored). We will introduce children to attractive tunes with the desire to strengthen technical stability, a sense of pulse, self-confidence in performance and the joy of playing. We will learn the technique of performing accompaniments by following a written chordal guide typical of jazz music. We will also pay attention to the safe physiological posture of children. We hope that the nice weather will allow us to play more in the nearby park or on the streets. If you have concerns or fears, you can contact us or those who had fear in previous years but no longer know it. Pedagogical protection of minor participants will be provided.

Registration fee: 150 eur

What?  Music workshop for all young and old string players and other instrumentalists.

Godalkanje means gathering of young musicians who play ethno tunes without notes. The emphasis is on playing by ear and including improvisation. The workshops help children and adults understand playing in front of a mass audience and in a group with exalted adult musicians. Godalkanje workshops have been held at various national music schools in Slovenia for several years.

Mentor: Barja Drnovšek / Bojan Cvetrežnik and other visiting mentors
Price: 20 € / month (4 workshops)

When?  Once a week 60 – 90 minuts (except during school holidays). The exact date will be known after the applications are received – presumably on Wednesday afternoons.   Where? Trnovo, Ljubljana   Mentors: Bojan Cvetrežnik, Barja Drnovšek, visiting mentors of Godalkanje   For whom? For all the string players and all players of rhythm section (bass, guitar, ukulele, accordion …)

The workshops are expected to take place on two levels of difficulty and are suitable for all ages:

Namuznjeno Godalkanje: for all of you who master the repertoire for the 3rd grade of lower music school.

Hobi Godalkanje: for all of you who master the repertoire for the 5th grade of lower music school.

 

What? At the Godalkanje group workshops, we teach content that is not yet widely available in our country. We draw mainly from the treasury of violin tunes of different nations. We learn by listening, following chords, performing different techniques (‘chops’, jig, swing, different ornamentation …). We refresh the learned repertoire at street performances and in concert halls. More information and applications: godalkanje@gmail.com
