Krstíme nové CD a pripravujeme turné!

Banda_Cover_photo_FB_851x315_TOUR (1)

Priatelia, po štvorročnom úsilí uzrie svetlo sveta náš nový, v poradí tretí štúdiový world music album, ktorému sme dali názov TELEGRAFY. Obsahuje 12 parádnych slovenských, ale aj ukrajinských a rómskych pesničiek v sviežich, niekedy až prekvapivých aranžmánoch. Dúfame, že sa vám zapáčia. Iste tomu prispejú naši hostia, ktorých sme do štúdia k niektorým skladbám prizvali na výpomoc – spevák Štefan Štec, gajdoš Juraj Dufek, fujarista a píšťalkár Karol Kočík, spevácka skupina Ženy z Muzičky a neuveríte: Dychová hudba Verešváranka! 
Pri tejto, pre nás významnej udalosti, sme si na október zorganizovali 8 koncertov, ktoré budú našou prvou naozajstnou koncertnou šnúrou. Oficiálne album uvedieme do života v Bratislave 10.10.2018 a v Prahe 24.10. 2018. Všade ste srdečne vítaní!

Banda´s song “Nadeja” become a soundtrack of the TV serial

Newly released mysteries series “1890” of the JOJ TV used the Banda´s song Nadeja as its soundtrack. The song cauht a fancy of the authors of the serial as far as they asked Samo Smetana to rewrite the original lyrics. The song has an interesting history: it was originaly recorded in 2011 for the first Banda´s CD Banda jedna. Yet, due to lack of space it finally made it to the second CD called HraBanda only. Nadeja, actually the most succesful Banda´s song at the “World Music Charts by Ethnocloud”, was originally sung by the traditional women choir Trnki from Banská Bystrica. For the purposes of the series it was recorded with the famous Slovak singer Juraj Benetin from the Korben Dallas band.

Traditionally, we were hosted by the NAY Dance House of the Pohoda 2016 festival. On Friday, July 8, 2016 within which we provided music for the dance instruction of the Horehronie region traditional dances. Our performance was colorful – after some time our friends from the dance groups Partia, Credance danced with us and those from the traditional vocal group Trnki from Banská Bystrica sang with us. Cool.

The night concert at Východná (Traditional Folklor Festival) from 2nd to 3rd July 2016 was the end of our weekend tour full of traveling and playing. The audience sang with us practically the whole concert – we have never received such a flood of energy before and we have never needed it so much as that night. Dear audience, many thanks!

In July in “Woodstock”

drienok
Don’t miss the first Slovak Woodstock type festival Drienok. We did not miss it and right on the first school vacations day (July 1, 2016) we hurried to Mošovce. Colorful girls, barefoot kids, exotic foods, dreads, blankets, pillows, swimming pools, joy. Playing (and drinking) was superb.

Banda played in Netherlands

banda9

This May, we performed open-air in the Dutch Tilburg, as guests of the International Gipsy Festival (May 28, 2016). The destination was far, the atmosphere was charming, the square was full, the bicycles dismounted. The life and soul of the festival, Dré Spangers, is a character, helping Gipsies not only in the Netherlands. It was an honor for us…
