The Czech Republic has no shortage of bands and solo artists combining folk music with newer forms. But, with the exception of the Roma community, there is a severe vacuum of artists willing to jump the conservatoire approach for the healthy thrill of revelry. Into that gap comes this female quartet, picking up bagpipes, guitars, shawms, mandolins and tambourines, and combining their voices and energies toward a youthful, animated musical vision. While their sound rests firmly in the wider Balkan echoes of Roma music, the band also makes direct nods to the dynamic music of Al-Andalucia and Scandinavian folk-rock revivalists Garmana and Värttinä. And they put it all together with a unique Czech drum beat.
