Music and gastronomy are the best media for getting to know different cultures. Therefore the festival in Gomirje, the place of the westernmost Orthodox monastery, is not only a festival of world music but is also a festival of global culture.
The Gomirje Accordion Mundial international accordion festival is an event which refers to the rich cultural heritage of the neighbourhood of Gomirje in Gorski Kotar, placing it in the wider context of the European and world music scenes which via the accordion various cultures and musical expressions are presented.
The Gomirje Accordion Mundial connects culture and customs with music and places Gomirje on the map of the promoters of world music and the accordion as an instrument. Getting to know the European neighbourhood from Great Britain, the organisation GreenWise People, has introduced one more element to the programme – the Forest School for Children and Adults and this is not just due to coming together and getting to know nature, but is also a breaking away from the small and large screens.
