LADO, which was founded in 1949, was nominated a few years back for the prestigious Independent Music Award (IMA) in America.

The ensemble, which travels the world promoting Croatian culture, consists of over 35 dancers who also sing while they perform, and a group of musicians who play traditional and classical instruments. Lado has had numerous famous Croatian ethnographers and choreographers, music arrangers, and folklorists work with them.
