They Went to Hear Them Sing. Song Traditions of the Kamnik Area.
Marija Klobčar, Peter Vendramin, Robert Vrčon
The CD They Went to Hear Them Sing presents thirty-five documentary audio recordings from the Kamnik area. Contextually it accompanies Marija Klobčar’s scientific monograph On the Way to Kamnik. Listening through the soundscapes of this region takes us from the past into the present, revealing previously overlooked images of the songs’ diversity and enabling better understanding of older material, recorded mostly in the Tuhinj Valley and the area beneath the Grintovci. The presented song traditions reflect everyday life outlining the internal diversity of the area, historical peculiarities, social contrast between Kamnik and its surrounding, certain affiliations with professions, traditional customs and contemporary attitudes towards tradition. These are further detailed in the accompanying publication; the introduction by Marija Klobčar, explanation of individual songs in Slovenian and English languages and photographs supplement this collection of songs.
