Croatia has once again failed to ignite the judges at the Eurovision Song Contest. Last night in Malmo, Sweden the Croatian klapa entry Klapa s Mora failed to qualify for the finals and were eliminated after performing their song Mizerija.
Croatia for the first time entered a klapa group which is a traditional Croatian form of vocal music originating from Dalmatia and on UNESCO’s inscribed list of world intangible heritage of Europe. Critics claim the group, which featured members of a number of different klapa groups, resembled more of a boy band than a traditional klapa group.
We are not disappointed because we done everything we could and gave everything we had. I wish all the finalists all th bet,” said group member Ante Galic to Vecernji list.
