To Dance! (Do tanca!)
„To dance!“ album by a musical group Tomáš Kočko & ORCHESTR gives another reason to believe that the cultural legacy of our ancestors is worthy of further cultivation and not only to be closed up in the museums. As the world is not too interested whether and how we play for example jazz, but the world is interested to know who we are. We find answers to this question in legacy of the past generations, in folklore. Just as L. Janáček found these answers and Moravian folk music became music of the world through his work. Music of Tomáš Kočko confirms the idea that it is worth being from somewhere without feeling ashamed of it. The album „Do tanca!“ contains 11songs, variations and modifications of Moravian folk dances and original pieces by T. Kočko inspired by folk dances or folk songs. He used both traditional instruments - cymbalo, grumle, violin, contrabass, kontry, gajdy, and instruments used in other music genres, such as acoustic guitars, djembe and small percussions played by many good musicians under the name of Orchestr. Although the final music form does not avoid touches with other genres, it still is an essentially Moravian music. And it is the source of the power originality of this CD where you can find also a video clip for a song “The Dancer” (“Tanečnica”) directed by Tomáš Hubáček and a dance remix of the song To Dance! (“Do tanca!”) by a famous DJ Boris Carloff. Tomáš Kočko, also called „walachian Pavlica“ moved from the walachian poet Ladislav Nezdařil (albums Horní chlapci, Do kamene tesané or Ondráš) through collections of folk collectors František Sušil and František Bartoš (album Hodovnice) to his original „world music song to dance“.
