Anyway, Ero s onoga svijeta was part of a Croatian opera based on a folk tale. Ľubko, of interest to you maybe is that the first international performance was in Brno, Czechia :). @Dušan was kind enough to give an introduction. There is a wikipedia entry in English for more details.


The folk singing of “Što na nebu sja visoko” has become a staple in Croatian cultural music and play and is held in high regard.

The song makes an appearance in the concert here at 3:35 since the song is praising our old culture. It’s perfect and powerful.

(PS: some people here might complain that I posted this particular band again but it’s related to the subject of ‘ero s onoga svijeta’ in this particular context and it demonstrates its popularity in our culture).
