Check out the Czech world music scene! Dear world music lovers, fans, professionals, and artists. You’re holding a special guide that maps the Czech world music scene, from clubs, festivals, musicians, through promoters, labels, workshops, to music awards. While thinking about design of this guide, our aim was to show the beauty of Czech traditions. That’s why we decided to present stunning folk ornaments of traditional blueprint fabrics called modrotisk. The technique of wooden hand-block printing and hand-dyed indigo cotton and linen fabric started in the 18th century, and is still practiced by a small number of family workshops in Moravia. It was added to the UNESCO Intangible Cultural Heritage list in 2018, nominated jointly by the Czech Republic, Slovakia, Hungary, and Austria. We hope this guide will be a useful companion when planning your cultural and professional activities. P. S. We will be glad for your feedback and any additions. Please, contact us at info@soundczech.cz

World Music Guide Czech Republic Made by SoundCzech, 2019 www.soundczech.cz Concept & editor Anna Mašátová Design by Pola Puk-Puk / www.pukpuk.cz


a Brief History of Czech WORLD MUSIC JIŘÍ MORAVČÍK Music journalist, curator of Colours of Ostrava festival www.world-music.cz


The Czech Republic is a country in which people used to say every Czech is a musician. It’s a country situated in the middle of Europe, a country with the famous composers Antonín Dvořák, Bohuslav Martinů and Leoš Janáček. After World War II, the Communist era came and with it forty years of airtight closure from the rest of the world. Any musician who wanted to succeed had to emigrate. Those who remained and did not obey the regime were not allowed to perform for the public. The Communists erased from traditional music any religious themes and natural free-mindedness associated with nature. It was Hard times, believe it!

4

After 1989, when the ideological shackles fell from Czech music and it could be played again without any censor restrictions, the world came up with a question: what traditional music is actually played in your country? The answer was not very complicated, especially four years later, with the creation of an independent Czech Republic after its separation from Slovakia. In the live folklore form, it is preserved only in two regions: the Chodsko region, lying in the west of the country, on the borders with Germa-

ny, which is known specifically for its bagpipe music and choirs; and the vast region of Moravia, situated in the east of the country on the borders with Poland and Slovakia, encompassing many culturally and linguistically different sub-regions, famous for their unique cimbalom (i.e. dulcimer) music, gajdoš (bagpipe player) music and music by hudci (violin players). Despite the important international festival of Roma culture, Khamoro, held in Prague since 1999, Roma music has practically not been preserved here in its original form and is represented mainly by the individual Roma traditions of modern groups and soloists. These times of freedom brought Moravian folk music out of forced isolation. The legendary village singers and musicians were able to publicly pass their art back to the next generations. Moravian music


has become one of the most important sources of inspiration and has been thoroughly mapped, mainly thanks to the Indies Scope label and the promoter, collector and musician Jiří Plocek. In the era of world music, several major festivals and concert series were created — Respect Festival, Jazz Meets World, Colors of Ostrava, Folk Holidays, Strings of Autumn or Color Meeting — enabling domestic musicians to have contacts with foreign musical culture. The possibility of traveling opened up unprecedented horizons for Czech musicians. Worldwide, Věra Bílá, Iva Bittová, Čechomor, Čankišou or Jiří Pavlica & Hradišťan gained well deserved attention and are currently being followed by a younger generation of artists. They are taking advantage of opportunities from international studies and collaborating with musicians from other countries, also thanks to the conference Czech Music Crossroads. In 2017, a compilation of Czech world music entitled At the Heart of the Bonfire was published in the prestigious Songlines magazine. Czech festivals and clubs, where world music is played, are gradually increasing.The world music

is talked about and written not only in the music media. The Czech Republic is no longer a poor relative even at Womex: Mr. World music, Petr Dorůžka, was voted Samurai of the year in 2007 and in 2017 he received the Professional Excellence Award. Zlata Holušová, the director of Colours of Ostrava was also delegated to Samurai in 2019. The Czech representatives appear in discussion panels as mentors. The Czech Mafia, as the womexicans call the Czech group of festival organizers, promoters and journalists, were gradually accompanied at the Womex program by individual groups and artists: Tara Fuki, Clarinet Factory, Ponk, Marta Topferová and Invisible World.
