The XXVIII European Seminar in Ethnomusicology (ESEM) that took place from 19 to 23 September 2012 in Ljubljana, Slovenia, was hosted by the Institute of Ethnomusicology and the Centre for Interdisciplinary Research of the Scientific Research Centre of the Slovenian Academy of Sciences and Arts. This year's theme National Past in Music/National Musical Past: Music and Cultural Memory in post-1989 Europe has encouraged scholars to have approached the topic with different and very interesting aspects: by exploring the ways in which current musical forms address the past events and by investigating the strategies of reshaping and renarrating musics from the past in the dominant discourses of the present. The symposium has raised interest in the international scientific discourse and media, as well as its contributions will be published in several international scientific journals.

The paper’s basic goal is to present how the event, which originates in folk-dance tradition, has coped with the impact of mass and pop culture and become a contemporary dance phenomenon, embedded in globalization, commercialization, and unification processes. In addition, it also provides an answer to the question of how this type of dance event influences the life of an individual and the entire community.
B.03 Paper at an international scientific conferenceCOBISS.SI-ID: 34796589
This thematic publication with a rather provocative title discusses questions as to whether the selected musical phenomena are a fossilised form of tradition, folklore and folklorism and, as such, are trapped in a museum-like image isolated from contemporary cultural life, or whether we are looking at active events, changes and adjustments within contemporary society. The aim of the publication is to present the openness and diversity of views on folklore and to create a connection between (past and present) folklore phenomena, between researchers and between their fields of expertise.
