Lastovke was formed from a chance encounter of two Slovenian migrants (one old and one new) in a Bellerive carpark, with families and dogs in tow. After the initial shock of finding another person with common Slovenian heritage in Hobart they soon realized they both also had professional interests in the performance of folk and classical music respectively.
Together with mandolin virtuoso Luke Plumb, recently returned from an acclaimed career with Scottish band Shooglenifty, and in collaboration with Dyan Shaw Summers of Flinders Island they have undertaken a project that explores their migrant perspectives of folk music from both home and new country.  
Lastovke presents a program that compares and contrasts folk songs from both Slovenia and Tasmania performed bilingually.
