Lipo Ti Je Cuti is a beautiful folk song from Southern Burgenland, Austria, from the Croatian ethnic minority group living there, from Stinatz village.

In May 2013, I happened to walk by Rathausplatz in Vienna where they were having the rehearsals for next day’s opening concert of Wiener Festwochen. Vienna is one cultural metropol (and therefore one of my favorite cities so far) that can afford to hold a massive, high quality festival with open admission, lasting 5 or 6 weeks.

Despite of the rain and despite that it was not a full “performance” yet, it was already an exquisite concert experience in the beautiful surroundings.
