Vladimír Václavek´s profil

Vladimír Václavek (*1959) is one of the most significant personalities of Czech music. In 1980´s he met several musicians with whom he has been cooperating on various projects since then. His career as a musician is connected with the names of Iva Bittová, Pavel Fajt and Josef Ostřanský who he joined in the band DUNAJ. He played the bass guitar at that time but he changed it for a guitar. From the mid 1990´s he played in the bands E and DOMÁCÍ LÉKAŘ and he also released his first solo album JSEM HLÍNA, JSEM STROM, JSEM STROJ ( I am earth, I am a tree, I am a machine). Around this time he also founded a Moravia-Japanese-French group RALE that released three successful albums inspired by the cultures of several continents containing rustle of six languages. Besides his part in some other formations he made together with Iva Bittová an unforgettable double-album BÍLÉ INFERNO/WHITE INFERNO in 1997 (White Inferno – a Gold Record Award by the Indies Records publisher in 2004). Together with the guest musicians from this album and Iva Bittová he founded an almost jazz group ČIKORI. At the present you can hear Vladimír in his solo program or in duo with drum player Miloš Dvoraček and in two live formations – Ingwe and Czech-German KLAR.
