Austria

Derite (Se Čizme Moje)—not taught

During the 16th century Turkish invasion, many Croatians left the regions around the Kupa, Korana and Una rivers, and the region of Primorje, finding safety in a desolate region of Burgenland, Austria, known to the Croatians that live there as Gradišće. They have managed to maintain to this day, their rich traditions, language and culture, including this dance and song from the village Stinatz (Stinjaki), which are done during festive celebrations. The research was done in 1982-84 in Gradišće.
