On Sunday 23 June, at the Sports Center/Treinkhe in Sauris at 8.45 pm the Noreia will perform for the last time at the Folekst after the first show in Toppo on Saturday 22.
After a period dedicated to Irish and Breton music, Noreia began to create a unique mix between Celtic music and the traditions of their homeland.
A unique and original approach that was successful, allowing the group to take on a musical connotation of great personality in sound, based on a great variety of instruments. The band is formed by Anej Ivanuša (flute, tin whistle, Galician bagpipe, vocals), Ana Novak (violin, vocals), Gašper Šinkovec (acoustic guitar, accordion, vocals), Stanči Škarja (double bass, vocals), and Robert Bone (clarinet, piano, whistle).
Before the show, an “aperitif in music” will be held at the Hotel Neider in Sauris at 6.00 pm.
According to a legendary tale Sauris founded long ago by two German soldiers who, fleeing the war, hid in the territory on which the current town stands. According to historical data, the first residential nucleus would have been created in the XIII century following the immigration from some valley of nearby Austria. A significant importance in the history of Sauris covered by the construction of the Val Lumiei hydroelectric plant and his dam, between 1941 and 1948. The artificial lake submerged the town of La Maina, of which the ruins remain under water. In Sauris one speaks again, next to the Italian and the Friulian, an ancient and fascinating language, a German dialect belonging to the linguistic group of the southern Bavarian. The Sauran language (de zahrar sproche) has been affected by contact with neighboring populations over time, but still retains many archaic traits derived from German spoken in the thirteenth century (mittelhochdeutsch). Sauirs is a center rich in cultural and gastronomic traditions of great quality, with a top-order tourist proposal, to which the new structure of the Sports Center has recently been added.
