Winter in Fara – 2022

Fara speaks to the heart. The nature. The river Kolpa. The mountains. Marnix lived in this small southern Slovenian village as an artist-in-residence for six months during the winter of 2020-2021. The peace and quiet provided the ideal conditions for creation of free improvisations through concerts and workshops, live from the old and rustic house of Podliparska.

Music crosses borders, even if they are closed off by fences, as is the case with the Slovenian southern border. Music connects people, with each other and with themselves. Will you join this musical chain of connection to cross boundaries and bring down fences?
