The International meeting of accordionists

The last Sunday in August is once again reserved for the International Meeting of Accordionists in Zrenj, an event which gathers musicians of all ages from Croatia, Slovenia and Italy.
The accordion is an essential element of traditional Istrian music and cultural identity. Its powerful sound has earned it a leading instrument role and a great companion of lively folk dances such as the waltz and the polka. While it can awaken a whole range of emotions, from sadness and melancholy to immense joy, the accordion certainly leaves no one indifferent.

Come watch the accordionists play their cheerful notes in the scenic village of Zrenj. Enjoy the music and its power to blur the boundaries between nations.
