The film about the Cinkuši, an unusual band of ‘world music rockers playing ethno-folk-rock – in the kaj dialect’.

The Cinkuši are an unusual band of ‘world music rockers playing ethno-folk-rock – in the kaj dialect’. They connect their kaj-roots and heritage with contemporary music, using a wide array of authors and texts like Miroslav Krleža, Carmina Burana or the Genesis. Their powerful authorial approach and emotional music erase all language barriers. Their story begins with their arrival on the set, where they are making a video for their song Bratec kosi. Ljiljana Šišmanović’s 30-minute documentary delves deep into their history and gives us a chance to meet the young Petrica Kerempuh who listened to The Ramones.
