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.

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
