TZ Sinj

August 23, 2021 - On Saturday, August 21, as part of the Kamičak Fortress Music Evenings organized by the Sinj Tourist Board and with the support of the Croatian Ministry of Culture and Media, the City of Sinj, and the Split-Dalmatia County Tourist Board, a concert evening was held with the Papandopulo Quartet and Sara & Jappa. 

In the evening, in the unique ambiance of the Kamičak Fortress, visitors could witness a musical spectacle under the starry night sky and virtuoso performances of top musicians: four Croatian saxophonists - Nikola Fabijanić, soprano saxophone, Gordan Tudor, alto saxophone, Goran Jurković, tenor saxophone, and Tomislav Žužak, baritone saxophone in the Papandopulo Quartet, and acoustic duo Sara & Jappa featuring Sara Brodarić on vocals, and Željko Brodarić Jappa on guitar and vocals. 

For several years now, the Sinj Tourist Board has organized successful and extremely well-attended concerts of classical, but also traditional and jazz music. This year, due to the pandemic, everything took place in an adapted form, in compliance with the recommendations and measures of the Civil Protection Headquarters and the NZJZ.

As part of the Music Evenings at Kamičak Fortress, concerts have been held so far by Academic Accordion Orchestra "Ivan Goran Kovačić," Sara Renar, Jazz swing quintet "Repassage," Wind Quintet "Kalamos," the unique Samobor percussion ensemble "Sudar Percussion," ethno musician Dunja Knebl with the band Kololira and ethno, Nocturnal4 and Ratko Zjača, ZZ Quartet, Trio EX PONTO, and TRIO VENTUS.

Everyone in Sinj enjoyed this year's performance of the fantastic Papandopulo Quartet and the renowned duo Sara & Jappa. Papandopulo Quartet concerts are regularly accompanied by the approval of the audience and the praise of critics, and such an atmosphere was not absent in Sinj either. It should be noted that the Quartet attaches special importance to the promotion of contemporary music by Croatian and foreign authors and cooperation with many prominent musicians, ensembles, and orchestras.

The father-daughter jazz duo Sara & Jappa, consisting of Željko Brodarić Jappa and Sara Brodarić performed top vocal and guitar interpretations of jazz classics from celebrated in Broadway and Hollywood musicals, which were popularized by Peggy Lee, Nat King Cole, Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Tony Bennett, Frank Sinatra, and other legendary performers.

The concert took place with all recommended measures of the Civil Protection Headquarters and the NZJZ.
