The three singers

Under snowy conditions, an annual festival called Mashkare or Pust took place in Kranj as well as other places in Slovenia. the tradition dates to the pagan rituals. People loosen up, dress masks, some families prepare for a month for this date. The main characters are so called Koranti or Kurenti, which you can see in the workshop and more in the work of another TE member, Vlado Janzekovic tjanze.
This events main purpose is to say goodbue to winter, but this year it has been snowing that day and ever since. Is it a bad luck? I don't know. These 4 characters (well, just three in the image) were also part of the parade. They were singing with very serious faces, but almost nothing could be heard because of the noise all around.
But they didn't matter, they continued to sing proudly.
