Gugutke: Sv. Andrej – Old Slovenian Folk Tune Premiere @ 1st European Folk Day (Live Studio Session)

September 23, 2023

Virtual Event Virtual Event

Old Slovenian Christmas carols are known as “kolednice.” They were originally sung to celebrate the birth of the Sun during the winter solstice. After their incorporation into Christianity, their theme shifted to Christmas, celebrating the birth of Jesus Christ. In some rare tunes, pagan motives remained present even after the transformation.

Lyrics can be found on Youtube description.

With a youthful approach to folkloric art, Gugutke are a quintet of Slovenian musicians that play folk melodies from all the Balkan regions in their own unique way, one which combines the skills and interests each individual brings to the group with the traditional musical techniques of the various geographical regions from which the songs and dances originate.
