    Meeting of young players on the Istrian folk and traditional instruments

    Meeting of young players on the Istrian folk and traditional instruments

    The meeting was called 'Supci pud mavricon' which in the Istrian dialect means 'Players under the rainbow'. The sounds of roženica, šurle, mih, mišnica, cindra, bajs, violin, maklarin and other traditional instruments can be heard at the meeting.

    The idea was that this meeting bring together exclusively the young musicians and to be held at the beautiful Grimalda - maybe the most beautiful Istrian lookout, which aim is to preserve the Istrian traditional music which is very well accepted by the residents of Istria.

    The goal of the race is above all to have fun, however with a little skill and speed, the amount of fun will increase. Each team must have at least two and a maximum of four members, and need to develop their own, original name using the theme of Motovun, under which they will then compete. Do not hesitate, let your imagination run wild!

    The Veli Jože race is suitable for all ages, and the planned duration is one hour.
    Each team will receive a map used for orientation, which will help it to find as many of the hidden checkpoints as possible.

    So - get your map and hit the road!

    25. International meeting of diatonic accordion players (Triestina)

    The sound of the popular 'trieština', a small accordion with buttons, starts to spread from every corner of the city – from taverns, family houses, streets - and whole Roč becomes on these days an open-air stage with a large fair where the most peculiar stands are those selling and exhibiting Istrian souvenirs and musical instruments. In this way people have the opportunity to buy and to play trieštinas or simply, just to listen to their sound... On this occasion, different musical workshops, lectures and presentations about the peculiarity of Istrian national instruments as well as scientific meetings about the preservation of the traditional music are also organised. Every year this small village with just about two hundred inhabitants becomes a unique world centre of this accordion called trieština.
