  • Muzička this week: concert at Štúdio L+S and Dance house in Pohorelá

  • Distillate [Muzička]

    CD DESTILÁT - Muzička We have released a real material CD album after a long time. You will find (if you decide to own it) a refreshing selection of our works from past years. If you already know our recordings from our web site, just a quick glimpse on the back of the Distillate will unveil some unknown virgin pieces. Yes, that was intentional. Obviously, we’re not quite fans of a "best of" monkey business and wanted to throw something new on the top. CD preview >>>

    Our intention to publish this CD turned out to be a good idea indeed. The world's leading magazine focused on world music, fROOTS, obviously likes the taste of this Distillate. They decided to publish a review of our latest album in their issue VIII / IX 2015, and – what we especially enjoy – track "Veš ty zajdu" is included in their last CD compilation (whole album in a monthly playlist on fRoots Radio).

    Well then, use wisely; ideally with legs landed on the table and narrowed eyes glancing over the horizon.

    If you would like to show your interest by buying a new CD, or even the older ones, please write to brdarsky@gmail.com

    The price of each one is 7, - €, in the case of shipping + 2,- € postage.

  • Songlines #107 - Review of the Muzička concert at "World Music from Slovakia"

    "How many Slovakian bands have you heard of? If the answer is none, then this showcase in Bratislava was for you. This special concert, organised by local activist Jarmila Vlčková, consisted of four Slovakian bands… From the Pressburger Klezmer Band and folk revivalists Muzička to the flamenco-inspired Acoustic Gangsters and progressive folk-world ensemble Banda, every concert was loudly applaused by a packed house… But, for me, the stand-out act was Muzička...

  • Visit in Šumiac

    Šumiac

    During one Šumiac afternoon in the summer of 2013, an idea came up while chatting with Juraj Margeta, to record the older generation of men singers from Šumiac, which are no longer active folklorists, but still like to get together to sing and have couple of drinks.

    The mixer, at last, took place in January 2014. We are intentionally not talking about "recording" session, since it wouldn’t describe the momentum. The Šumiac community center building hosted more like “randezvous” of noble people, sprinkled by homemade sausage, homemade spirits and good stories seasoning (we still laugh at Siman Karoly’s last comment to his invitation to a cabin stay: “It must be warm though! So in case somebody sleeps in outside, he won’t die….).

  • Muzička and Muzyka Jana Karpiela-Bułecki, HLAVA 22 / 8th november - 20:00

    The most famous living Polish Goral (people living in mountain regions along Slovak-Polish border) - musician and singer , that all certainly is Jan Karpiel Bułecka.. This man together, with his band, will be visiting us in Hlava XXII music club on 8. November 2013. We are looking forward to having him and you as well, of course.

    Muzyka Jana Karpiela-Bułecki, Muzička

    A little about Jan and his Goral music: We met him first through his recordings. And we were truly meeting those over and over again. He definitely became one of our inspirations. Our first mutual encounter took place at the festival in Krakow . We even sang together (http://youtu.be/dYFI1ftCGjI - video is incorrectly listed, since not Trebunie Tutki, but Jan Karpiel – Bulecki’s band is singing with us ). As usual, it turned out, that “the legend” is normal casual guy, great to chat , drink and play with. We keep watching his fingers though. The Goral violin music really does have specific moves. And he is so good at it... Read more > > >

  • Oj, na hori cvite len (three Rusyn songs)

    We would like to present you a new piece of three Rusyn songs.

    It might come out as an inexcusable move at the least everything proves so:

    - we personally know very few Rusyns (Kamil, Maroš, Števo, Jano)
    - songs happen to come to us in a weird ways (e.g. through Zuberec)
    - we consult language via e-mails with several born Rusyns, but they basically never match
    - confusion raises also in the basic terminology: we call them Rusnaks they themselves Rusyns, we call ourselves Slovaks, but attention, they call us Fakove!

    But bid the heart ...

    P.S.: The accompanying photograph of the Nation Park Poloniny is made by our first violinist. Visit it, it’s beautiful there! You even might meet a bison!

    Muzička - Peter a Ivan

    Basin is a great invention. Man can fix up cracklings in it, cook delicious gulasch or rich sheep whey. Quite a lot of stuff had been cooked also within the Carpathian basin in the past centuries. Sometimes with better sometimes with worse ending. We would like to please you with the tastiest part of her bowels together with the Fonó Band from Budapest on May the 17th 2013 in Hlava 22 (Catch XXII) pub. Bon apetite!

    Fonó zenekar

    Gergely Agócs - ethnomusicologist, singer, player on folk wind instruments and the frontman of the Fonó Band - lives in Budapest, but has been born in Fil'akovo. A spark jumped between us several years ago and we have been meeting regularly ever since. We owe him for some of our musical appearances in Hungary. Gergely and Fonó work with Hungarian folklore and folklore of other nations orginating Carpathian Basin in the manner Muzicka adheres and have even completed significant number of on place research in the original folk environment of traditional music. You can read more about Fono here. Fono will shurely show us some of their newest album Wild Baroque.

    Introduction of CD Recordings of traditional folk music from 1958: OČOVÁ

    Nahrávky tradičnej ľudovej hudby z roku 1958 : OČOVÁSeries of very spontaneous recordings of folk music from Ocova were obtained in the Czechoslovak Radio Brno in 1958, with contribution of Nestor of Moravian ethnomusicology Dušan Holý and Zdenek Cupák. Jan Gaspar – Hrisko jr., famous Gypsy musician from Ocova and back then also a cimbalist and arranger of Brno Radio Orchestra of Folk Instruments was a kind mediator of this happening. The recordings are valuable documents of playing style of instrumentalists from Ocova: Juraj Jamriska, Juraj Durecka and Martin Danko, as well as other gypsy musicians from Ocova and Zvolenska Slatina. In addition to well-known gypsy band frontman Jozef Berky-Dusan, we can also listen to the rare recordings of play of the older generation of first violinists: Jan Gaspar-Hrisko sr., his son Jozef Gaspar- Hrisko and Jozef Gergel-Totka.

  • Paľáčovci band (Hrochoť), Roman Malatinec and Muzička, Hlava XXII - 22nd February

    Once, when we were young and handsome, someone wise played a beautiful recording of Hrochot music on the radio and then said: It is a pity that the tradition of Paľáč band was discontinued and that it fell apart. Paľáč band denies this non-existence statement by its own existence, and we can enjoy them in Hlava XXII (Catch XXII - pub) on 22nd February 2013 at 20:00. The existence of Roman Malatinec has never been doubted (at the least not so far), which also ensures the smooth running of the event.

    22nd Februry 2013, Hlava XXII 

    We will start at 8:00 p.m  and finish gradually.
    Admission fee is 4 €, tickets can be ordered at muzicka@muzicka.sk or bought on the spot before the concert .
