Mimika Orchestra are an extensive ensemble of expert Zagreb-based musicians who combine jazz and classical influences with Balkan folklore. They are an astonishing band in the live arena and present a unique sound that you could not find anywhere else in the world. Their latest album, the fascinating and accomplished 'Divinities Of The Earth And The Waters' is their third and was released in 2018 to justly rave reviews.
As the Indian summer fades from memory, it's time to head indoors. Autumn and winter are the time that Croatia's music scene really comes alive, with all students back in their university towns and cities and everyone returned from holiday. You're much more likely to see international touring bands and DJs visit Croatia in this period and with Rijeka's cultural calendar picking up pace in preparation for its European Capital of Culture year in 2020, it's not only Zagreb that has world-class entertainment this month. Split also has a major DJ visiting this month who you shouldn't miss.
