Lambs and wolves

Lambs and wolves The unique meeting of four music files resulted in a wonderful acoustic recording, built on the traditional songs of Moravia. Album lambs and wolves follow the vision of the Moravian world music like rivers that constantly and under constant changing of rolling countryside, which gathers its strength from many sources. This vision has its origins in a concert titled From the roots to the realized world music festival Folk Holidays 2014.

Songwriter, musician and principal mover of the project Marian Friedl in the preface to the album wrote. "Two forms of contemporary folklore represent the Women's Choir of Kudlovice of Slovakia and RukyNaDudy from Frenstat pod, the band focused on archaic musical instruments and playing styles of Beskydy. These two complementary formations jazz musicians with a close relationship to folklore and nadžánroví seekers from Trio Jitka Šuranský.

The theme of the album, lambs and wolves wandering flanks, liminálním space where one crosses the other. Here, the sharpness of disappearing borders between now and once, between life and death, lambs and wolves, cheerful and sad, between positive and negative. Although we had boundaries surrounding ubiquitously and at first glance, clearly define, for example, black from white, as soon as we get closer to the interface of two opposites, we find that the world is here much more colorful than we expected. "
