Lado celebrates the 70th anniversary of his artistic work

first_imgThe year in which it celebrates the 70th anniversary of its artistic activity, the Ensemble of Folk Dances and Songs of Croatia LADO is preparing the program “Let the sun shine on everyone where there is still our family”, fully dedicated to songs and dances of Croats abroad. An opportunity to show our guests our cultural and historical heritage. Inform your guests about LADO or better yet, as a host in family accommodation take them to a celebratory concert and be proud of our tradition, history and heritage. Zadar – wake up, it is quality and authentic content that tourists want to see and experience. It is a story we must tell our tourism. Photo: LADO The celebratory concert will be held in Zadar on April 26, 2019 at the Arsenal Zadar. Find out more about the concert HERE “During their turbulent past, especially in the period between the 15th and 17th centuries, Croats from the territory of today’s Republic of Croatia and Bosnia and Herzegovina due to military activities sought refuge outside their homeland, inhabiting areas where they have remained to this day. Through all these centuries, separated from the motherland, they have preserved their identity and their traditional culture. Therefore, the Ensemble of Croatian Folk Dances and Songs LADO dedicates its seventieth birthday to them.”, Says the artistic director of the LADO Ensemble Andrija Ivančan and points out that the very name of the program calls on all peoples in the countries inhabited by Croats to love, peace, tolerance, respect and building bridges between peoples and their cultures. Lado are the guardians of our tradition, heritage and customs, and by their actions they take care that they do not disappear into oblivion. For more than seven decades, Lado has been performing on stages all over the world, and with over 5.000 performances in Croatia and 48 countries around the world, he tells the story of our customs and identity, the story of Croats. Lado certainly deserves the title of ambassador of Croatian tourism. LADO has a holdings with more than 1.200 sets of folk costumes of exceptional value and beauty, some of which are over 100 years old, so we can freely call it a traveling museum that is extremely valuable and important for preserving and nurturing our identity, culture and customs. I keep emphasizing how we should be and sell what we are – Croats. That is the very essence of tourism. Tourists want to hear, see and taste our history, our culture, our way of life.last_img read more

Dodgers’ Dustin May has one purpose right now, and it doesn’t involve winning in August

first_imgMay showed plenty of promise in the team’s 5-2 loss to the Padres.The 21-year-old went 5 2/3 innings, struck out three and allowed three earned runs in his MLB debut. He threw 98 mph with sink. His wavy red hair was fabulous.Given Los Angeles’ deep rotation and its inability to trade for a top-shelf reliever at the deadline, the club could use May out of the bullpen in the playoffs if he impresses during the regular season. That role would play up his stuff even more — and potentially place him in an elite club of rookie arms who’ve succeeded in October.“If the time comes when I move to the bullpen, I’m 100 percent down for it,” May told reporters before Friday’s game. “At the moment right now, I’m just focusing on my start and we’ll see where it goes from there.”MORE: Here’s how to watch “ChangeUp,” an MLB whiparound show, for free on DAZNOver the past few decades, a number of rookie relievers have been electric in the postseason. Below is a sampling of the newcomers who showed little agitation in high-pressure situations.PitcherAgeTeamYearIPERAKsMariano Rivera25Yankees19955.10.008Francisco Rodriguez20Angels200218.21.9328Adam Wainwright25Cardinals20069.20.0015Phil Hughes21Yankees20075.21.596David Price23Rays20085.21.598Craig Kimbrel22Braves20104.12.087Neftali Feliz22Rangers20107.11.2311Among the players on this list, Rodriguez and Wainwright were probably the most impressive. They each won the World Series and carried a significant workload in key games. Rodriguez in particular stands out because of his age. May is obviously a long way from nearing any of those hurlers in stature. He has made one big league appearance in his life. He has yet to prove himself.As plenty of past pitchers have demonstrated, though, it doesn’t take much regular-season work to get the postseason call.What May does in the short-term is just preparation for the possibility he takes the Dodger Stadium mound a couple of months from now. That’s when his outings would really matter. Dustin May’s Friday night outing was not about Friday night.It mattered because of what it could represent in the postseason. The Dodgers, almost certain to claim their division, are focused on winning the World Series after consecutive defeats on that stage. They’re interested in whether their top pitching prospect can help in that pursuit, not whether he can earn victories in August.last_img read more
