Katarzia_upoutavka_uprava.jpg

Katarzia is a slovak songwriter based in Prague. She sings in slovak language, her fresh lyrics are closer to rap, her band is somewhere between jazz and pop. Soft songs about human relationships have nuances of 90's slovak popular music, flirting with fragments of electronic syths, hip hop and cinematic atmosphere.  She performs a heartbreaking show with well-connected young musicians and composers.

alba molina.jpg

Alba Molina’s name remains linked to such diverse artists as Jorge Drexler, Alejandro Sanz, Pedro Guerra, Navajita Plateá, Dorantes, Manuel Molina, Lole Montoya or O´funk’illo, diving into different styles and genres such as pop, bolero, Brazilian and Caribbean rhythms, fusion jazz and flamenco.

‘Alba Canta a Lole y Manuel’, as she puts it, ‘probably the most flamenco album I will ever make’, and also, with no doubt, the most personal and heartfelt album in her career.

Alba is in a personal search in this album for the warmth of the cradle, for her music idols, for her professional and personal nourishment, and assumes what will be undoubtedly one of the biggest challenges in her life. A challenge that drives her to choose only eleven songs among all her parents’ records, under the guidelines of her emotions, personal experiences and unique memories. This is an album with only voice and guitar, brave, natural and unpretentious, out of respect and humility, faithful to the old recordings of Lole and Manuel. On guitar, José Acedo, an admirer and a scholar of the guitar playing of the ‘maestro’ Manuel Molina, in love with his spontaneity, humility and his unique Triana beat.

The repertoire unites different generations by an invisible thread that weaves through skin, ears and heart: magic arises.

This is a modern jazz quartet under the direction of the leading Czech jazz pianist and composer Kristina Barta. Her singable melodies, infectious rhythms, distinctive approach and the great interaction within her band members enthused the international jury of the 2015 Jazz Prix competition. Barta won the first prize in this competition for jazz artists under 35 years of age and living in the Czech Republic. In 2016, her trio was a finalist of the Euroradio Jazz Competition and performed at Bimhuis in Amsterdam in the Netherlands. Their music is a combination of jazz traditions and efforts to explore something new. The band sounds optimistic, after periods of nervous or depressive modern jazz; perhaps this is a new trend. Helped by the fact they are the young musicians who do not stick to cliches, but go directly to the essence of musical magic", says the editor of Czech Radio Vltava, Václav Vraný.
