Music cassette Mury the Cat & Matzie- Catsie

In 1975, the Mladinska knjiga publishing house published Kajetan Kovič's children's book Mury the Cat with excellent illustrations by Jelka Reichman. Four years later, the author of Mury the Cat, composer Jerko Novak and singer Neca Falk, who had already cooperated in the music project Zlata ladja, came up with the idea of a Muri the Cat singing. In 1984, a team of top musicians began recording the cassette Mury the Cat  & Matzie- Catsie  at the Metro studio in Ljubljana. 12 songs in various musical genres were written by Jerko Novak, and Neca Falk perfectly interpreted Kajetan Kovič' lyrics. Both cat heroes got a rock look, created by illustrator Kostja Gatnik on the cover of the cassette. This was the beginning of one of the most successful Slovenian musical stories, which will be presented in a new temporary photo exhibition in our museum. It will be open to the public from December 11, 2021.
