Klapa Fa Lindjo is part of a recent trend of female vocal groups emerging in Croatia. The traditional Klapa was composed of up to a dozen male singers. Klapa singing itself dates back centuries. The arrival of the Croatians to Dalmatia and their subsequent settlement, began the process of the cultural mixing of Slavic traditions with that of the Latin population of Dalmatia. This process was most evident in the coastal and island regions of Dalmatia.
