Home Entertainment: Klapas: Klapa is a group of 5 to 8 a capella singers and usually has a tenor, baritone and 2 bass singers. The tenor is the leader of the group and he is the first one to sing, all the voices follow his lead.
The beauty of klapa singing is the ability to sing freely, without notations or instruments, and express the love of Dalmatia through song.
There are no classes or schools that teach this style of singing, so this particular multipart singing is a part of oral tradition and its often passed on from fathers to sons. Klapa singing has a long tradition in Dalmatia and its cultural importance inscribed in 2012 on UNESCO Representative List of the Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity. Top of Form Bottom of FormWedding Trends:
More and more brides are going for more non-traditional flowers such as protea, anthurium and pampas with lots of dry flowers as well. Dried flowers are gaining traction when it comes to bohemian, minimalistic, and even classic aesthetics.
We see big trend for boho weddings lately same as in 2019. Dried palms, pampas plumes and unusual grasses will be used to create lush bohemian backdrops and wild bouquets with mix of colorful blooms.
Lot of our brides go for foliage wedding decor or so called no bloom trend. Simultaneously greenery and massed natural foliage continue to be a strong favourite keeping spaces luxurious yet simple and blending with outdoor space and beautiful Adriatic Sea.
