Rugged mountains, cave dragons and sustainable cuisine … Kranj packs a punch for a town aiming to leave little trace
Normally, hearing a beatbox cover of the Beatles’ From Me to You live would make my toes curl. But the sincere way singer and dancer Žigan Krajnčan retools the song, hitting high note warbles and thudding his chest for extra bass, has me nodding hypnotically.
Skinny and barefoot, with straggly blond hair tied back, Krajnčan is playing a gig with his cellist brother Kristijan at the small wooden theatre-style Layer House venue in Kranj, northern Slovenia. Ranging from beatbox to Radioheadesque orchestral pop, the theatre offers an intriguing showcase of local talent.
