Omiš klapa festival

Omiš is famous for its festival of local klape – the traditional male- and female-voice choirs of Dalmatia – which takes place over weekends throughout July, usually culminating with open-air performances in the Old Town over the last weekend of the month. Klape are an important feature of Dalmatian life, and almost every town or village has at least one of them. Songs deal with typical Dalmatian preoccupations such as love, the sea and fishing, and are usually sung in local dialect. The festival is well worth a trip from Split; the Omiš tourist office will have details.
