Už jsme doma will be christening their new album Kry today

The Kabinet múz will be hosting a legend of the Czech alternative scene. The band Už jsme doma (“We’re home already”) will be presenting its new album after gap of eight years, Kry (“Icebergs”).

Už jsme doma was formed in Teplice in 1985. In its beginnings, it was joined by Miroslav WanekRomek Hanzlík from the punk band FPB. Maybe that is the reason that one can hear the punk roots and the influence of the avant-garde in their music. The band has gone through a lot of intensive performing in foreign clubs. Its composition is made up of Miroslav Wanek (guitar, keyboards, vocals and composition), Pepa Červinka (bass, vocals and smile), Adam Tomášek (trumpet and vocals), Vojta Bořil (drums) and Martin Velíšek (brushes).

The album Kry was made after an eight-year creative break. Miroslav Wanek says about it, that: “Kry are for Už jsme doma a symbol of the passing nature of life but also the fight against it. It is a symbol of cycle and continuity, the consciousness of belonging with that which has passed and that which is still to be. The consciousness of responsibility when taking on the baton in the relay, carrying it for your section and then passing it on. The album is also dedicated to human icebergs, the ones that helplessly float on the waves of the Mediterranean and melt so fast that no one even notices them.”

The christening of the Kry album will take place today, on 28 November 2018 from 8 p.m. at the Kabinet múz.

Several years ago, a miracle happened to Jura Hradil. This devotee of the electronic nu jazz alternative came to the hilly Carpathian landscape somewhere on the border between Moravia and Slovakia and heard a song, firstly one, then two, then hundreds. It wasn't a blurry echo of old times, but the bright tone of a Horňácko song.  more

Originally, it was supposed to be the third part of the YM project, in which the individual members of the group Květy make records of their solo albums of different genres, and their colleagues from the band accompany them. After Lorenzovi hoši [Lorenzo´s Boys] by Martin Kyšperský in country style and after the electronic Japonec [The Japanese Guy] by Aleš Pilgr, Ondřej Kyas´s Solárium [The Sunbed] was hard to classify concerning its genre category. As a solo record, with only an episode contribution by Aleš Pilgr and without any playing participation of Martin Kyšperský.  more

The small Ponava music club has been renowned in Brno last several years for its very high quality music production. Here and there, its diverse programme also features folklore projects. On Thursday, a duo of the well-known multi-instrumentalist Marian Friedl and the Lachian vocalist Sabrina Pasičnyk performed on this stage.  more

While trumpeter Jiří Kotača is known to the Brno jazz audience mainly as the bandmaster of the progressive big band Cotatcha Orchestra, on his first CD he presents himself with a different formation. He had met the Swedish guitarist Alf Carlsson during his studies in the Netherlands, and then they met up again and founded their band during Alf's tourist trip to the Czech Republic. Then they invited two very talented Slovak players to a joint trip for music, drummer Kristián Kuruc and double bass player Peter Korman, who is a member of Kotača's big band. This international formation plays Kotača's and Carlsson's original compositions and gets more or less inspired by Moravian, Slovak and above all Scandinavian folklore. The album was given the name Journeys, because journeys – to music, to knowledge and to the heart of souls – are what the life of not only this band revolves around.  more

With the return to the Janáček Theatre after three years and with the first foreshadowing of the upcoming celebrations of the 250th anniversary of Ludwig van Beethoven's birth, the Brno Philharmonic entered the new year with its traditional, already the 65th New Year concert in history. For this occasion, it chose a programme truly magnificent and appropriate, crowned by the European-famous Ode to Joy. The whole gala evening took place under the baton of Chief Conductor Dennis Russell Davies.  more
