Takes place in Prizren

Medimus, the international festival of medieval music takes place in Prizren, in the wonderful ambiance of the atrium of the Church of the Holy Saviour, which dates back to the 14th century. Medimus festival is the most significant musical event that has been organized in the previous years in the city of Prizren.

Musical heritage

Medimus aims to represent medieval musical heritage, in a city in which the culture of music was particularly prominent and nurtured, and where some of the most beautiful compositions in the area were created. Medimus festival combines contemporary musical creation with the territory where it was all initiated.

Taking inspiration from Dragan Prizrenac

Dragan was one of the many musicians who played their music on public squares in Dubrovnik as early as 1335. In 1346, Dragan played Carsko kolo during Emperor Dušan’s coronation in Skopje, and was from Prizren. The dance “Kosači” was often performed at Emperor Dušan’s court, in front of the emperor, his gentry and guests and it was followed by Dragan Prizrenac playing his music on the trumpet alongside lute players and drummers.
