The female klapa Castrum Vallis
The female klapa Castrum Vallis from Bale has started its activity on 05.05.2012 and is formed by 10 members. The klapa members have previously sung in various profane and religious choirs, and this very great love for music, musical expression, and singing have been the reasons for forming the klapa.
Regular singing trials and exercises under expert guidance have brought very good artistic results very fast, so the klapa has performed in various shows. During 2013, the klapa performed on the occasion of the opening of the Castrum Vallis International Exhibition in Bale, and as a guest at the concert of the Klapa Opatija, as well as at the Christmas concert in Rovinj's multimedia center and in the Christmas Concert in Bale.
In 2014, The Klapa participated in the ''Klape of Istria and Kvarner'' competition in Buzet, and at the 41st Festival of ''the Senj Klape Festival'' in Senj where the klapa opened the festival with a very good interpretation. During the summer months, the klapa also performed at the opening of the 50th anniversary of the 'Castrum Vallis' International Exhibition, at the opening of the International Cactus Exhibition' Cactus Day' and performed in a small concert for the opening of Days of the Tourist Board of the Municipality of Bale.
