Compared to the releases from Tomas Kocko I have heard before, this is the band at its most accessible, independent and most international sound if you ask me. Of course we still have Moravian folk influences, many track have different approaches. There are tracks with more worked out choir/singing arrangements, with attractive harmonies, there are song tracks led by the male or by one female vocalist with some vocal harmonies, acoustic guitars are combined with a hand-percussive instrument that is reminiscent to the Persian frame drum, drums, violin/cello or double bass and some piano and a sort of bigger hammered zither. A few tracks have folk-rock elements, one or two are made a bit heavier with electrified guitars. One of the last, bonus tracks has modern rhythms and a flute arrangement added, not really necessary for the music but comprehensible.
