Druga Godba, one of the world's 25 best international music festivals according to the Songlines magazine, will open with a concert by the African music star Rokia Traore. Most of the festival events will be part of a two-day concert marathon taking place over a weekend.
Druga Godba, held for the 30th year running, is a festival of world and, to a lesser extent, contemporary jazz music. It ranks among Europe's best festivals of slightly alternative music difficult to fit neatly into musical categories.
Druga Godba is well known for bringing to Ljubljana leading artists from different backgrounds and musical traditions who draw inspiration from different traditional folk musics and are committed to creative musical exploration. The Druga Godba line-up is sometimes even ahead of world trends.
The influential British magazine Songlines ranked Druga godba among the world's 25 best international music festivals of 2009, 2010 and 2012.
