Slovene Folk Dance Music, The Koroška region
Rebeka Kranjec, Drago Kunej, Mirko Ramovš
The audio material for the first CD from the series called “Slovenske ljudske plesne viže” (Slovene Folk Dance Music) was recorded in the Koroška Region (the alpine region in the north). A part of it was compiled in the Slovene community in Austrian Carinthia (in the areas of Ziljska dolina, Rož, Podjuna), and the other one in Slovenia (in the area of Mežiška dolina with Strojna). The recordings illustrate the dances from the same region, published in a book by Mirko Ramovš “Polka je ukazana. Plesno izročilo na Slovenskem – Koroška in zahodna Štajerska” (2000) (The Polka is Ordered. Dance Heritage in Slovenia – The Korška Region and the Western Štajerska Region). Tunes for most of the dances characteristic of Carinthian Slovenes are included in the CD. As far as form and music are concerned, their dance heritage is similar to other Slovene regions because it has developed in a similar way.
