The participants were chosen through auditions in elementary schools and they sang Croatian pop songs.

Check them out, they’re adorable:

Check out the video medley with this year’s participants:

Although this latest craze with talent shows is a relatively recent thing, since the Idol, The Voice, CountryX’s Got Talent, etc… However, this talent show has a much longer tradition. It used to be called Pjevači amateri and was conceived in Selca by Zoran Vrsalović Peci.

Kudos to the organizer – Dalmalino and Zoran Vrsalović Peci – on a great effort. Hopefully Glas Brača becomes a long-standing tradition once again.

Brass ABBA

Reason #77: you can join a brass band in Selca and play ABBA’s greatest hits

The brass band is called “Hrvatski sastanak 1888” and it was formed in 1939.

Everyone is welcome to join and learn how to play one of the brass instruments. You just have to know how to blow air out of your mouth, basically, and you’ll learn :)
