Valná hromada 2020: Sbor hudby, MCH3, Hrozně, Klikva-klikva

A concert called Valná hromada [General Meeting] will commemorate the legendary shows of music groups of the 1980s, when Brno's alternative scene was shaped. The joint concert will take place in ArtBar.

Valná hromada is a memory of the shows of alternative bands in Brno in 1982-83. The concert in ArtBar will feature the band Klikva-klikva led by Standa Filip from Ještě jsme se nedohodli [We Have Not Reached Agreement Yet] and Martin Růžička. Another band will be the trio MCH3, a formation of Mikoláš Chadima, the founder of the Czech alternative and a former member of the family of then emerging Brno's alternative scene. They will be alternated on the stage by the Brno band Hrozně, which has existed since 1982 and still belongs to the active stream of the Brno alternative. Sbor hudby [The Choir of Music], which appeared at several Valná hromada shows back in 1983, will present a show named Na stolku v herně [On the Table in a Playroom] with the old-new bass player Jirka "Bobeš" Prokš. Petr "Fili" Fiala will appear as a guest in a composition titled Nedefinitivně [Non-definitively], which will be performed in a new arrangement.

Valná hromada 2020 is announced to take place on 25 January 2020 at 19:00 on the ArtBar premises.

If a band releases a new album after ten years and calls it Dej si čas [Take Your Time], it sounds like a pleasant self-irony. But what is ten years against delays of other bands, whose fans had to wait for new albums for eighteen (AG Flek) or even thirty years (Progres 2). For Mošny, it was said that the new album started to emerge a few years ago, but the group wanted to include some brand new songs, which they needed to rehearse and finish.  more

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
