After several visits by melographers to Solin from 1906 till 1947, aimed to collecting the local vocal folk music activities for their own ethnographical or ethnomusicological researches, or within the projects organised and supported by musicological institutions of the same scientific interests, in the latter part of the 20th century the folk singing in Solin became subject matter of an increased interest of music professionals dealing with the klapa singing. While their predecessors had approached the vocal folk music in Solin from a scientific discourse, the melographers of the latter half of the 20th century in the folk singing in Solin found materials for creating the klapa repertoire, especially after establishing the Omiš Dalmatian Klapa Festival in 1967, that stimulated a faster development and rise of the klapa singing. In Solin the klapa singing developed simultaneously with the klapa singing in the rest of Dalmatia, stimulated by establishing the Omiš Dalmatian Klapa Festival in 1967, to have reached a stronger expansion after founding the Solin male klapa in 1974. From then till the
creation of this paper, through activities of numerous male and female klapas in Solin that have made significant achievements at the klapa scene, placing thereby Solin among the reputed klapa localities, the klapa singing in Solin has kept its developmental continuity, today sharing the destiny of the klapa singing in the rest of Dalmatia and Croatia, encountering the present day social and cultural challenges. In the second part of the paper, the author deals with the activities of the melographers and arrangers, Vinko Lesić, Jerko Martinić, Ljubo Stipišić, Duško Tambača, Blaženko Juračić, Jure Šaban Stanić and Tonći Ćićerić, who in the period of time from 1950 till 2020 collected 44 folk tunes in as many as 54 different melographic records. These records have resulted in 63 arrangements for Dalmatian klapas. In the latter half of the 20th century the klapa arrangers of the folk singing of Solin used also 7 melographic records collected in Solin in 1906 by Vladoje Bersa. From these Bersa's records 11 klapa arrangements have been created. Arrangements of some of the recorded tunes have become part of the standard klapa repertoire, performed by numerous Croatian klapas today. Still, most part of them has remained in the repertoires of the klapas of Solin that, by performing the vocal folk music of their closer region, are trying to preserve their own heritage and music identity.
