The Faros' Cantors



In its rich and varied cultural history, the island of Hvar is the holder of the finest Mediterranean cultural heritage and tradition. The beginnings of its culture date back to ancient times, from the Greeks, the Romans, the Illyrians to the Croats. 
This wealth is expressed through all forms of art amongst which music holds a special place, as one of the forms of popular expression. Representing this rich cultural, ecclesiastical heritage of popular musical tradition, and unique in the world, Faroski kantaduri present just one part of the rich popular musical tradition of the island of Hvar. 

Faroski kantaduri have saved numerous original melodies from oblivion by their continuous activities and by cherishing tradition in particular of polyphonic klapas singing. Kantaduri have cherished this musical world heritage as well as of a religious character, so we may say that they cherish those melodies created “from the altar to the tavern”. Faroski kantaduri, have been cherishing these popular and sacral melodies, performed in Croatia and in 20 countries within Europe and America as well as at leading world festivals of ancient and sacral music amongst which the performance in 2000 at the Sacred Voices Sacral Music Festival in London should certainly be selected.
