Abstract

The term ‘folk music’ in Croatia is closely related to the history of its performance at festivals and other related public events. Festivals (smotre) were an appropriate field of application in the place of canonization of traditional music. Through their existence and activity, various musical genres, styles, and performers were profiled. All of the above will be defined and analyzed through the example that is the focus of this research – the Festival of Dalmatian klapa in Omiš, a festival that formatted, institutionalized, and popularized klapa singing.
