Izlaganje o ojkanju kao zaštićene baštine pri UNESCO u Maison des Cultures du Monde, Pariz, listopad, 2012.g.
The inspiration for this presentation I found in my recent work regarding the question of registration of intangible heritage. Croatian Ministry of culture commision decided to propose some of the specific music phenomena to the newly established UNESCO Urgent safeguarding list of intangible heritage. Ojkanje was selected as a Croatian proposition for the UNESCO's list and I was assign to coordinate all the requested specifics - to fulfill an intricate bureaucracy procedure that includes pages of official akin questions. I accepted assignment furtively hoping that the official cultural politic efforts would finally recognize the significance of the musical tradition and initiate new cycle of life for this musical phenomenon.
