Jiri Slavik & Marian Friedl & VUS Ondras
The album "Mother Tongue" (Mateřština) presents the brilliant double bassist and composer Jiri Slavik in the role of a singer and multi-instrumentalist in search of his cultural roots, implementing folk music heritage in his own contemporary works. Mother Tongue is a unparalleled synthesis of heart and mind. The project offers a wide scale of emotions, compositional finesse, raw veracity, and flawless interpretation.
Besides being a musical genius, Jiri Slavik is also an authentic artist in search of truth both within and in the world without. Mother Tongue (released by Animal Music), was recorded almost completely in solo, but his live performance at the festival will feature master performers from the military art ensemble Ondras and other guests.
The concert has no intermission.
