SlovaCzech is formed by four young musicians who met during their studies abroad, outside their own homeland. As the name of the ensemble SlovaCzech suggests (it is a connection of two English names “Slovakia” and the “Czech Republic”), their repertoire covers mainly folklore music from Bohemia, Moravia and Slovakia. It is enriched by songs and dances from other Central and East European cultures, e.g. Hungarian and Rumanian. Their own unmistekable adaptations and unique arrangements impart remarkable sound and character to both well-known and less known folk songs, without claiming correct enthnomusicological interpretation.
