Comment

Dalmatian klapa song originally from islands Lastovo and Mljet.

The Peacock is a type of pick-up reel, expanded all along Croatia, but with different melodies and dance steps. A person dances inside of a reel, picks up someone from it and kisses her/him. Then they exchange places and reel goes on the same way.
