    A concert by Janez Škof and Marjan Stanič (members of Čompe musical group) performing poems written by Dane Zajc and Edvard Kocbek, marking the occasion of the Slovene Cultural Day, at Embassy of the Republic of Slovenia Bratislava in Bratislava, Slovakia
    programme



Čompe was established in 1994. The word čompe means "potatoes" in a dialect of the Northwestern valley of Trenta. The group's busking music probes street language as well as Slovene modern poetry (including several poems written by Dane Zajc, Milan Jesih, Edvard Kocbek, and Andrej Rozman-Roza), and reflects irony as well as joie de vivre, music virtuosity, and dilettantism with zeal and humour. Čompe are Breda Krumpak (saxophone), Silvo Zupančič (guitar), Neža Zinaić (violin), Žiga Saksida (saxophone), Marjan Stanič (percussion), and Janez Škof (accordion, vocals). Their first album Čompe was released by Sanje Publishing House in 2005.
