hloucal.png

This group wants to present its concept of jazz via Roma song arrangements and their own compositions. Because their roots are connected with this culture, they want to bring other musical influences to the Roma culture. The two main protagonists (Fečo, Hloucal) work together in various other projects and they have fun playing together. Together, they have created arrangements for this project, so it´s an interesting combination of two musical opinions. By its character, it tends to the modern mainstream with new influences from the New York and European scenes. 

Miroslav Hloucal – trpt, fgh; Jan Fečo – alto sax; Vít Křišťan – piano; Tomáš Baroš – bass; Radek Němejc – drums.

los quem.jpg

Filip Spálený put together this band in 2008. Since then Los Quemados has released three albums (“African Sailor” in 2010, “Sirius” in 2012, “Circling Bird” in 2015 – all on the Hevhetia label) and they’ve performed at many concerts in the Czech Republic and abroad. The band's repertoire is mostly based on originals written by Spálený or Jakub Doležal; the compositions are full of fresh melodic and harmonic ideas and the performance is always a high-octane ride on a wave of jazz-funk fusion with undoubtable instrumental skills. Personnel: Jakub Doležal – saxophone – main influences are Charlie Parker, John Coltrane or Michael Brecker; Jan Bálek – piano, keyboards – favourites are Chick Corea and Michael Jackson; Filip Spálený – electric bass – likes Victor Bailey, Felix Pastorius, Hadrien Feraud or Mike Bendy the most; Ondřej Pomajsl – drums – influenced by Vincent Colaiuta, Dave Weckl. Los Quemados members would certainly agree on listening to Weather Report, King Crimson, Frank Zappa, Dirty Loops, Tower Of Power, Pat Metheny or Tribal Tech.

yo so indigo.jpg

Yo Soy Indigo is an original folk-funk band formed around singer, songwriter and guitarist Emily Thiel from Connecticut, USA. Her vibrant and often personal songwriting is backed up by her powerful vocal performance and the brilliant assembly of the other members. The band itself was born out of a jam session in an old factory in 2014 and has grown to what it is today: a mish-mosh of wonderfully weird, international musicians with blazing solos, soulful melodies, deep lyrical expression and good serving of  humor. The band calls itself „folk-funk“, which just scratches the surface of the free-flowing genres the band explores.

Emily Thiel (USA) – vocals, guitar, songwriter; Mark Newson (UK) – keys; Adam Pospíšil (CZ) – violin; William Valerián (CZ) – alto and soprano saxophone; Fredrik Janáček (SWE) – bass guitar; Dušan Černák (SK) – drums.
