Role and importance of Klapa singing for the development of harmonic ear in solfeggio class

Marković, Vedrana; Ćoso Pamer, Andrea (Articol)

“In the framework of the project Identity Elements in the Montenegrin Music as a Basis for Development of Multiculturalism and Interculturalism (implemented at the Music Academy Cetinje since 2013 and part of the National Projects group, supported by the Ministry of Science and Ministry of Culture of Montenegro) we focus on, among other things, implementation of appropriate contents from the Montenegrin music heritage in a contemporary solfeggio class. Klapa singing, as multipart a cappella singing which is characteristic of the Bay of Kotor and Montenegrin Littoral, attracted our attention. Having in mind that klapa singing in the Bay of Kotor was mostly influenced by klapa singing of neighboring Croatia, we identified this type of traditional singing as an element that can significantly affect the affirmation of multiculturalism and development of intercultural dialogue. This work will show the manner in which klapa singing can contribute to development of the harmonic ear in the framework of a solfeggio class and which methodical procedures the teacher can apply by using klapa music as didactic material.”
