The Linđo Folklore Ensemble’s traditional female vocal group (klapa) was founded in February 2000 at the initiative of the ensemble’s female dancers. Vedran Ivanković, a musician-member of the ensemble at the time, today a successful award-winning klapa leader and leader of the ensemble’s choir, became the leader of the new klapa.
Klapa members are: Lina Ivanković, Ana Bačić Vukota, Luči Carević, Paula Lazarević, Margarita Dundić, Fani Favro Bukvić, Marija Puljić and Ivela Matičević. At first, it was their undisguised enthusiasm and great desire to preserve and enhance cultural heritage through singing folk songs that defined them and positioned them at the top from the very beginning.
They won thirty awards on various festivals and had over 600 concerts and smaller performances. As many as 19 at the prestigious Dalmatian Klapa Festival in Omiš - absolute winners in 2009 (first prize of the expert jury and audience award).
