Jezdeci Škrlatne Kadulje
Starting as a Grateful Dead tribute band, Jezdeci Škrlatne Kadulje quickly evolved in a compact sounding folk rock quintet, specializing in localizing the greatest music of the times of hippies. Harmonious singing and Slovenian lyrics adds that little something which won’t leave any of the deadheads disappointed.

Chorinho e Samba Brasileiro
A regional ambassador of Brazilian music, Denise Dantas, formed a quintet in order to tell the story of how samba developed from chorinho and evolved to bossa nova. A group of experienced musicians from Brazil and Slovenia guides the listener from the rural north east of Brazil, to favelas of Rio de Janeiro and explodes in samba-enredo of the great carnival.
