The group's programme covers traditional dances from throughout Slovenia as well as some dances of Slovene ethnic minorities. The group was one of the first in Slovenia to introduce in their programmes ancient folk instruments (hammered dulcimer, musical saw, pan pipes, etc.) and many home-made rhythmic instruments. Since its beginning, the Emona Folklore group has had over 1,600 members and has toured throughout Europe and presented the Slovene cultural heritage in the Americas, Algeria, Egypt, Japan, and North Korea.
