After 10 years of continous existence, with more than 40 international musicians from 25 countries all around the world, Jazz Ex Tempore begins the new decade with the celebration of Croatian Music.

Due to extraordinary treasures of Croatian musical heritage, the variety of musical styles from Medimurje to Istria and from Slavonia to Dalmatia, to this year's project were invited some of the most significant representatives of their "homeland music": Tamara Obrovac from Istria, the tamburitza player Filip Novosel from Slavonia, Marko Ramljak on Dalmatian violin, Maasej Kovacevic from Medimurje and Damjan Grbac and Tonci Grabušic from the Primorje and Kvarner region. All this Croatian diverse music and instrument power will coordinate the artistic director of Jazz Ex Tempore project - Elvis Stanic.

11th Jazz Ex Tempore begins on Tuesday, 24.11., when Tamara Obrovac and Elvis Stanic will hold a public workshop / jazz talk about the Istrian music, particular Istrian scales and relations with jazz.

On Wednesday, 25.11., Marko Ramljak will talk about Dalmatian music without traditional choir cliche bands, and weather this is possible at all, while on Thursday, 26.11., Filip Novosel, as the only graduate jazz tamburitza player in the world, will share with the audience his experience of studying tamburitza at the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music in New York, and to demonstrate a quite unusual compound of the tamburitza and jazz.

All workshops / jazz Talks will take place at Villa Antonio, beginning at 20:00 pm, with free access - open to the public.

The final concert will take place on Friday, 27.11., at The Villa Angiolina starting at 20:00 pm; tickets are available one hour before the concert at the price of 70 kn.
