About the event
Multi-award-winning and internationally successful Žigan and Kristijan Krajnčan combine vocals, cello, percussions and dance into a fascinating Odyssey which sails with inexhaustible energy among different genres, generations, tempers and emotions.
ŽIGAN KRAJNČAN (1995) is a great breath of fresh air on the Slovenian art scene of recent years. A musician, dancer, choreographer, director, actor and performer, he works in different parts of the world and develops the idea of integral creativity, all the while looking to expand, blend and move the borders of genres and styles. His successful career, crowned with many awards, has taken him to the United States, China, Europe and Africa, where he studied different cultural patterns, adopted them with his characteristic openness, rethought them and incorporated them into his own artistic projects.
KRISTIJAN KRAJNČAN (1986) has been established as one of the most prominent European artists of his generation. A virtuoso on both cello and drums, a composer and a film artist, he has received many awards for all the areas of his work. With his solo project DrummingCellist he has released four albums. For his last album Zabučale gore (2022), he recreated Slovenian folk music with a modern outlook. He has collaborated on 52 albums and held concerts in over 25 countries. He has also composed music for film, theatre, interdisciplinary and dance projects.
