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.

The Slovak group Kiero Grande, two Polish bands and the Brno musician Jan Fic with his solo project progressed from the competition Blues Aperitiv to the international festival Blues Alive in Šumperk. Jan, or Honza as he is informally called, who under the label Red Bird Instruments makes cigar box guitars and other instruments, is otherwise known as the frontman of The Weathermakers, playing their raw blues even at Porta. And in several festivals he appeared as leader of the mock country group The Honzíci. The interview that follows took place on the occasion of the release of the solo album Město (City), which Jan Fic together with the producer Martin Kyšperský officially presented on 17 December in Brno’s Stereo – Vinyl Culture Shop.  more

The last week full of musical events culminated in the final round of the Central European Jazz Competition organised by the “neighbouring” jazz festivals – JazzFestBrno and Poysdorf Jazz & Wine. This cross-border musical project has a promising future: the first year of the jazz competition in its final afternoon offered six half-hour blocks of the finalists, who were a surprise with their musical range and the quality of their musicianship.  more

The main programme focus of this year’s Janáček Brno 2018 international festival is the performance of all of the composer’s musical-dramatic works. After the popular success of Káťa Kabanová and the precisely staged The Makropulos Affair yesterday it was the turn of the Polish ensemble Teatr Wielki from Poznan with a performance of Jenůfa, a work which, twelve years after its Brno premiere in 1904 opened the doors to the international musical scene to Leoš Janáček.  more

Many diverse and qualitatively varied opera performances were heard at the festival Janáček Brno 2018. Every now and then a production appears that divides Brno audiences into two irreconcilable camps, one overjoyed by the innovativeness, many non-musical references and bold direction, while the others lament the illogical symbolism, departures from the libretto, seeing it even as a slap in the face of the composer. The song cycle The Diary of One Who Disappeared from the Belgian ensemble Muziektheater Transparant as directed by Ivo van Hove and with compositional annotations by Annelies Van Parys is controversial in the true sense of the word. The scenographer Jan Versweyveld, the costume designer An D’Huys and the dramaturge Krystian Lada also took part in this new stage form. The solo roles were taken by Ed Lyon, Marie Hamard and Hugo Koolschijn, accompanied on the piano by Lada Valešová and the choral academy De Munt/La Monnaie also took part in the production. The Diary of One Who Disappeared was performed yesterday in the hall of the Mahen Theatre.  more

The second of the accompanying folk concerts of the Janáček Brno festival took place at the Reduta Theatre. And it seems that the bar, set by the first concert, has remained high. The show, called Chodníčky k lidové písni (“Roads to folksong”) was to present one of Janáček’s favourite regions in Slovácko – Horňácko – to the audience. This job was taken on by a cimbalom band with the fitting name of Musica Folklorica.  more
