Malujeme hudbu (We’re Painting Music) – An online project for children

The Brno musician Radim Hanousek is behind the interactive website Malujeme hudbu (We’re Painting Music). The aim of his project is to develop children’s creativity even during the coronavirus crisis. Professional musicians and artists such as Nikol Bóková, Michal Wróblewski and Natalie Perkof got involved in this online help for quarantined children.

Malujeme hudbu (We’re Painting Music) – The website that interconnects children’s playfulness and ideas with experienced artists’ creativity. It works with pictures that are used as an inspiration to musicians, and also with music, which can, on the contrary, inspire artists. The father of the idea of the entire project is Radim Hanousek, jazz saxophonist, improviser and the founder of the Dust in the Groove band. Children can find both pictorial and musical material on the website and then use it to create and subsequently upload their creations onto the website. The following artists took part in the entire interactive project: Peter Graham, Natalie Perkof, Lenka Pilařová, Olga Piperová, Reidun Rose Vinda, Roberta Legros Štěpánková, Marcel Bárta, Nikol Bóková, Fabio Delvò, Didrik Ingvaldsen, Žaneta Vítová, Jana Vondrů and Michal Wróblewski.

Yesterday's concert, which took place as part of the Concentus Moraviae festival, entitled Scarlet Venice and featuring violinist, flute and piano player Anna Fusek along with lute and theorbo player Gianluca Geremia, was among the very first evenings indoors that classical music lovers were able to attend after the long, pandemic-forced pause. The chronologically compiled agenda presented those who paid a visit to the Church of All Saints, Moravský Krumlov, with works by early 16th century composers, the origins of the new style and compositions by late Baroque masters.  more

On this very day (19 May) an event will start in Valašské Meziříčí which all the dulcimer players from almost all over the world have been looking forward to for two years. It is the 14th International Dulcimer Festival, which has been held in this town every odd year since 1995. This year, it is sure to be rather modest due to the pandemic situation; the organizers are going to stream some of the concerts, while others will be broadcast on the Czech Radio stations Vltava and Brno. This year, Michal Grombiřík, a dulcimer player, became the first ever such musician admitted to the Jazz Music Interpretation Department of the Janáček Academy of Music and Performing Arts (JAMU). What is the path from a traditional folk song, through classical music to jazz music, and what exactly is Michal going to do at the aforementioned dulcimer festival? We covered all these topics in our conversation.  more

Ód ... The artistic name evokes singing, narration, poetry, odes… It is also a guide to pronounce the first name in Czech of the protagonist, a French singer settled in Brno, Aude Stulírová Martin. She has been living in Moravia for ten years and is an excellent Czech speaker. In that time she has co-founded a band called Šarivary as well as the theatre company of Le Cabaret Nomade. She was also active as an artistic director of the Bonjour Brno festival. Bébé Lune is her current, second album – a collection of lullabies from around the world, it was created by Ód as a result of her winning Expats for Brno, a competition seeking innovative projects. So, while the project is international in its content, it is very closely related to Brno.  more

Anyone who knows the B-Side Band, especially through performing international hit songs with the singer Vojtěch Dyk, or last year’s album Folk Swing, may be surprised by their unique take on a production of Jaromír Hnilička’s Missa Jazz. In fact, the big band’s history is tightly interwoven with the composer’s legendary Jazz Massmore

On the occasion of his 66th birthday last year, documentary film-maker, singer-songwriter, musician, author of theatre plays and writer Jiří Vondrák released a double album, one representative of his musical activities at large rather than a selection of his best-known material. Despite the title this is no “best of” collection, instead it’s a noteworthy mix of hits and rare pieces, old songs and new songs, and modern folk and rock pieces. As such it serves as a great introduction to Vondrák, a Renaissance man of culture in Brno, as well as a collector’s item featuring recordings not released elsewhere or almost impossible to find. The first half of the double CD really packs a punch, too.  more
