Voices in Etno: Boris Štok, Barbara Munjas, Alba Nacinovich… + Porto Etno Orchestra

The Porto Etno Orchestra can be considered the music foundation of the Festival: ever since the Festival’s first edition in 2017, the Orchestra has been performing at every Porto Etno. In addition to accompanying numerous guests, the Orchestra also performs their songs.

In Voices in Etno, a new Porto Etno programme, the Orchestra will accompany 5 well-known musicians – Boris Štok, Barbara Munjas and Alba Nacinovich are the first on the list of musicians who will perform their hit singles in a completely new arrangement. You will have to be a bit more patient for the names of the other three performers – we will disclose them soon…
