In many ways the history of Druga Godba in the 21st century is also the history of Katalena. The band first took the DG stage way back in 2003 and appeared no less than four times in all – a record for a homegrown act. They have retained their original line-up for almost two decades and show no sign of stopping, with their ninth album, Kužne pesmi, due out in June. It explores the notion of the plague, as experienced through history and, of course, by all of us in the present time. The epidemic is a challenge in the human, social and health senses, and one that these musicians also set out to address creatively. How can music and poetry confront isolation, loneliness, fear, responsibility and care? How can we express in music and words the wide range of feelings and situations into which this ‘plague’ time has plunged us? The interweaving of self-authored and folk songs, the dialogue between past and present: these have been the hallmarks of Katalena’s work from the very beginning, and are on magnificent show once again in Kužne pesmi. As always, a band in the right place at the right time.

The Katalena concert has been postponed to 7 October due to personal reasons of one of the musicians. Already purchased tickets remain valid for both concerts (Rundek&Ekipa on 7 July and Katalena on 7 October).
