Kykyrý is a convincing debut of a young, gifted song-maker Jana Vébrová. The whole album is characterized by her insistent, emotional presentation of poetic lyrics accompanied by the sound of accordion. “I present in an open and sincere-as-hell way a picture of what has happened and what might happen. A picture painted by those untied ideas themselves," says Jana Vébrová, who has been appearing on stage since 2004, about herself. “But I’ve been trying to play it a year or so earlier. Actually it was my granddad’s helicon, what lead me to accordion. I returned to it from time to time but put it away after two staggered songs. These hopeless efforts brought me to conclusion that it might be good to make use of my piano training I received at “Liduška” music school, so I borrowed from a friend of mine a small groaning accordion left by her great granddad. I composed first several songs with it – Kykyrý ( Margarín), Buřtguláš, Čertíci (Little Devils) and Nelekej (Do Not Scare), the very first ones, crucial and with time rather “revolutionary” for me."
The whole album was named after her very first song called Kykyrý (being formerly played under the name Margarín - Margarine), which is "a nice slogan and beautiful, resounding, Czech word.” However Jana Vébrová is not the only author of the songs on the album. She has recently worked with Ivan Archer, who participated substantially on the album as a producer as well as an author. “In fact our cooperation developed gradually. First, Ivan asked me to sing and play accordion in recording for a theater performance, for which was composing music. We perceive things similarly and what connects us most is the landscape and environment we grew up in – both on a different side of the border and of the Lužické Mountains, moreover both in a mill - one in a watermill, the other in a windmill.” The album was recorded at Broňek Šmíd’s Indies studio in Brno. Besides Jana Vébrová and Ivan Archer you can hear on the album also Michal Dvořáček, an excellent drummer, who played rhythmic parts in three songs. Thanks to presence of other instruments the album is much more diverse than one would expect a debut of a song-maker with accordion might offer.
