NAGRADA NAJBOLJEM DOMAĆINU
Posebna zahvala svim domaćinima na srdačnim dočecima, kao i prilogodbi ovogodišnjim vremenskim prilikama, a nagrada za najboljeg domaćina ide Općini Gračišće.
Here are also a few recognitions by an untrained casual observer:
Wonderful personality, in addition to a distinctly beautiful voice, great talent, and great looks. One of the friendliest, most modest, and most hardworking among "MIK people". Twice the winner despite young age and a relatively short MIK career.
No1 in grace, elegance, and visual interpretation of the song. MIK audience has been blessed with 15 years of her singing that is soothing and stimulating, and comes straight from the heart.
VESNA NEŽIĆ RUŽIĆ
Great start for Vesna as a composer - where she remains true to the Istrian traditional music. Someone has to do it! Otherwise MIK could become only MK again.
Quick thinker! Alen saw the opportunity created by the floor level stage in Krk, walked to the audience and sang to the lady in first row.
SILVANA & DUŠKO JELIČIĆ
Dule & his "Potok" have put Ika on the map. Incidentally, The Bonaca performance at the final concert was filmed by RAI-2 TV, as part of their report from Opatija, that features, among other things, Duško's daily fishing expedition, along with his seagull friend, etc.
The quietest member of the Caravan.
The group is a hit of MIK 2009. Audiences in all host towns accepted their artistic presentations of the local ethno music with, shall we say, surprising enthusiasm. Their program was a welcome addition to the MIK intermission program, and a nice fit for MIK's philosophy of using the new to preserve the old.
Captured the audience with humorous songs and flamboyant interpretations. A MIK legend as lyrics writer. Sings about Opatija, enjoys strolls through old Bakar and Novi, and the view from Gračišće, admires cultural life of Višnjan, feels at home in Pula, and loves coming to his native Labin.
Best smiles - whether the little Mona Lisa one, or the ever present bigger one, that gives the MIK stage an additional sense of a relaxed and fun environment... And, she couldn't have done it without the smiles, cooperation, and creativity from the rest of the accompanying vocals, Martina, Amira & Andrej.
MARIO LIPOVŠEK & HELENA ŠIPROGA
Tough assignment for Mario, to fill Robert Ferlin's shoes, but he did it superbly. He fired up the audience with his well known humor and the ability to improvise. Helena brought to the scene great voice, great smile and confidence.
