Ghost of You Christen Their New Album Black Yoga

The Brno psych-pop group Ghost of You has brought out their new album Black Yoga, which they are christening in the Fléda club. Part of the concert will also be a light projection. The Serbian rock band Repetitor will be special guests.

The Brno group Ghost of You has already given a series of concerts in London and appeared at the festivals Eurosonic, Sziged, Pohoda, Beseda u Bigbítu, Banát, Colours of Ostrava and Metronom. Their first EP Ocean K was recorded by the four in the line-up Tom Novohradský, Michal Janík, Štěpán Pařízek and Jiří Habarta in 2013. This was followed by the album Glacier and the City (2015), which met with great success. The current Black Yoga is their third album. “This album is in many ways different, but the energy remains the same. We used different instruments and experimented more. Now we have completed a new concert set, placing alongside each other the new album and part of the first album. We discovered that they work well together,” explained the group’s drummer Michal Janík.

Black Yoga (2018) was set up under the supervision of the producer Ondřej Ježek. At that time in place of finished songs the group brought to the studio individual motifs and ideas. So aside from two pieces the disc was only created in the studio. The resulting colourful sound is a distinctive interweaving of psychedelic pop, art-rock, electronic sounds, in places almost epileptic percussion and the expressive vocals of Tomáš Novohradský.

The christening of the album by the group Ghost of You is to take place 15 March 2018 from p.m. in the Fléda club. Ghost of You will have as their guests the Serbian group Repetitor.

Evenings of  the cycle named Music Stocktaking of the Brno-based orchestra Ensemble Opera Diversa regularly bring to light various half-forgotten works by Czech composers. This Tuesday's concert in the concert hall of the Convent of Merciful Brother [Konvent Milosrdných bratří] became a commemorative tribute to the anniversary of the tragic years 1939 and 1969. Violinist Milan Paľa and pianists Kristýna Znamenáčková and Lucie Pokorná performed alongside the orchestra. The performance was conducted by the permanent conductor of the orchestra Gabriela Tardonová.  more

The ensemble Šafrán from Moravian Slovakia is already a traditional organiser of the Brno “fašank“. This event, in the spirit of folk traditions, always takes place on Tuesday before Ash Wednesday and it marks the beginning of Christian fasting. Its roots go back to the pagan times, but it is now part of Christian feasts almost all over the world. Marches of masks in various regions of Moravia are called končiny, masopust, fašanek or, for example, šibřinky. Its  ensemble parallel in Brno tries to stick to the folk pattern. It begins with a parade in  Náměstí svobody Square. This year it continued through the Alfa Mall to the market building at the Cabbage Market. The end of the programme was performed by the ensemble Lučina, which showed the audience the so-called burial of a double bass. It is a custom consisting in a staged burial of this musical instrument, symbolising  the end of entertainment, calming down and preparing for Easter.  more

"In the past, old people used to be as old as we allegedly are today" sings Slávek Janoušek in his song Alzheimer and Parkinson. The songwriter, who celebrated his 65th birthday last September, found aging as an extremely powerful theme for his new album. Tohle je vzkaz [This Is a Message] is an album not only about incrementing years of age, but also about how we increasingly appreciate our families and our  roots as we “grow old“. Although we can find very strong moments in all Janoušek's albums, Tohle je vzkaz can be perceived as the third part of the trilogy of his most powerful recordings – Kdo  to zavinil [Whose Fault  Is It] (1988), Tancuj a zpívej [Dance and Sing] (1997) and Tohle je vzkaz [This Is a Message] (2018).  more
