Klapa is a form of traditional singing, and the word klapa means “group of friends”. There are two types of klapa: „a traditional folk klapa, an informal group of friends, ususally brought together by similar interests, age group or occupations, and festival klapa, formally organized group with regular rehearsals and performances“ (Joško Ćaleta, Klapa singing, a traditional folk phenomenon of Dalmatia)

The main mission of the International Klapa Festival in Perast is to preserve and promote the musical tradition of the Bay of Kotor.
