Tribute to the King of Polka
Watch the new promotional video about Slovenia with Perpetuum Jazzile, an XXL vocal a capella musical gorup with the song “Na Golici” – the most frequently played instrumental song of the 20th century written by Slavko Avsenik, the king of polka and one of the biggest ambassadors of Slovenia, who has unfortunately, passed away this month. The Avsenik Brothers Ensemle has been awarded with thirty-one golden records, two platinum records and one diamond record, and won the recording industry’s European Oscar. The famous ensemble has resounded numerous concerts and sold over 32 million record copies over their forty-year career. Avsenik’s music is powerful and original. As many as 600 versions of the “Na Golici” polka have been recorded and Avsenik’s tunes are played by a variety of performers, ranging from large orchestras to solo performers. New promotional video represents our country as green, active and healthy destination. Great music is an important part of every event, especially live music. Enthusiastic and energetic Perpetuum Jazzile is also a popular entertainment choice as a foreground music at various events in Slovenia. Need a good tip for your next MICE destination?
