Croatia Chooses Tradition For 2013 Eurovision Entry

Great news! Rather than re-invent the wheel, or go “Eurovision” or obscure pop, Croatia are pinning their Eurovision hopes for 2013 on their traditional music, Klapa. It will be interesting to see if they stick to “pure” Klapa, without accompaniment, or not. The group is selected from the stars of successful existing Klapa groups and dubbed “Super Klapa” and we’re in for a treat.
