Slovenian Music

KIM: One of the things I want to do in Slovenia is make contact with local musicians. A priority is connecting with bass players and others in the Slovene Philharmonic of Ljubljana. I'm learning that polka is very popular in Slovenia, and while it hasn't been a favorite style of mine, I do like other folk styles such as gypsy music very much. I've been researching music of the area for several weeks now, and the most interesting group I've found so far is called TerraFolk. A short clip from one of their performances can be heard above. Maybe I will get to hear them when I am in Slovenia!
