Croatia will be taking part in the first semi-final of this years' edition of the Eurovision Song Contest with the track Mižerja performed by Klapa S Mora. The decision of the track was taken by an internal panel of professional judges following an external call in which the broadcaster, HRT had already decided to go down a traditional route opting to send a klapa to the international spectacle. It is worth noting that the genre is a heritage, also recognised by Unesco, which in turn is a specialised agency of the United Nations. An official video to accompany the entry was officially published last night.

Mižerja, written by Goran Topolovac who hails from Duga Resa is supporting the tourism of Croatia in general with the video somewhat keeping the traditions alive. Marko Škugor, Nikša Antica, Leon Bataljaku, Ivica Vlaić and Bojan Kavedžija are all from different parts of Croatia and therefore makes their coming together even more interesting. They were actually selected by Maestro Mojmir Čačija and re-worked into the group they have become through producers Nikša Bratoš and Dragan Brnas who created the final version of the track. The balkan nation has never won the Eurovision Song Contest with their best result at this point in time still being a fourth place finish in 1996 and 1999 courtesy of Maja Blagdan and Doris Dragovic. Stay tuned to for all of the latest news about Croatia in this years' international spectacle.
