I've got this very special cream... it comes from a river near Truške.
Here's a clip from our concert in that aforementioned village

This summer, just after the lockdown eased and the borders opened, I snuck off to Slovenia for a secret summer mini-tour, where I joined the Etno Histeria World Orchestra, along with my specially created summer tour band - "Worldwide Welshman & The Floating Castles":- Jonas, Lotte, Cedric, Angelika, Gaja, Vilma & Sami. We got on Slovenian National TV!
The next morning, we gave "Goldfish" is first radio airing, performing it live on Slovenian National Radio!! The WWW tour band were joined by Toby, Matija, and Ajda, the Etno Histeria Orchestra leaders (no clip of this, sorry).
A few days later, the Histeria team organised a variety-show style concert for us in the local village. I was honoured to accompany my dear friends Vilma & Sami AND the phenomenal musical sensation that is CLAUDIA SCHWAB as a guest guitarist in their sets. All in a days work for Worldwide Welshman! (I felt like I was going up in the world :D)
