Marta Töpferová

Marta Topferova is one of the most unique singers and songwriters of her generation. Her powerful voice and spirited songs are rooted in traditions ranging from Latin American folklore to Czech folk music. Marta is also a dynamic musician and plays the four-string cuatro, guitar and hand percussion. As a Czech immigrant to the United States at a young age, Marta established herself on the New York music scene, where she collaborated with some of the best musicians from the Latin, jazz and classical circles. This experience has forged a unique mix of styles in her work. Some of Marta’s most notable collaborators during her sixteen years in New York City have been harpist Edmar Castañeda, bassist Pedro Giraudo, singer Lucía Pulido, violinist Jenny Scheinman, cellist Erik Friedlander, guitarist Ben Monder, and drummer Adam Cruz. Marta recently returned to her homeland, the Czech Republic, in order to conceive and launch an ensemble of Czech and Slavic music – Milokraj – meaning “beloved land”. The result is a collection of original songs, featuring an all-star Eastern European line up: Slovak violinist Stanislav Palúch, Moldavian cimbalom player Marcel Comendant, Czech guitarist David Dorůžka and Slovak bassist Robert Ragan.

September 10, 2016 8.30pm Potrvá Tickets: 150Kč Reservations: info@pmpif.org Bansal Trio performs original compositions in the raga tradition by Harpreet Bansal. In addition to Harpreet on the violin, the band members are Andreas Bratlie (tablas, percussion) and Vojtech Prochazka (harmonium, piano). The foundation of Bansal’s compositions is her upbringing in the North Indian classical musical tradition, with her father as her first tutor. The arrangements are a group effort under the guidance of producer Jan Martin Smørdal. The open form of the arrangements invite the musicians to utilize their respective musical backgrounds in improvisation and spontaneous music-making. Bansal Band’s aesthetic spectrum is wide: Melancholy, tranqulity and dignity alternate with the virtuosity, energy and passion. Drawing from the immensely powerful source that is hindustani music, Bansal Band aims to reach a broad audience both in Norway and internationally.

ESPERANZA SPALDING Presents: EMILY’S D+EVOLUTION GRAMMY award-winning singer-composer-bassist Esperanza (Emily) Spalding is announcing spring and summer tour dates for her newest project Emily’s D+Evolution… Rekindling her childhood interest in theatre, poetry and movement, this new project delves into a broader concept of performance. Originally conceived the day before her birthday, during a “sleepless night of full moon inspiration”, Emily’s D+Evolution will be performing all new material that Esperanza says “unfolds as live musical vignettes”. “Emily is my middle name, and I’m using this fresh persona as my inner navigator. This project is about going back and reclaiming un-cultivated curiosity, and using it as a compass to move forward and expand.” says Spalding. “My hope for this group is to create a world around each song, there are a lot of juicy themes and stories in the music. We will be staging the songs as much as we play them, using characters, video, and the movement of our bodies.” TICKETS Esperanza Spalding Presents Emily’s D+Evolution Tour

THE MUSICAL BOX presents Selling England By The Pound – November 4, 2015 – Forum Karlin

THE MUSICAL BOX presents Selling England By The Pound November 4, Forum Karlin, 8pm In the autumn of 1973, a musical event was about to re-define the concept of a rock show. Five British musicians, under the name of Genesis, began touring Europe and North America to promote the release of their fourth album, Selling England by the Pound. Both the theatrical imagination of Peter Gabriel and the intricacy and intensity of Genesis’ music reached their apex, and were enhanced by surrealistic sets and special visual effects, leaving the audience spellbound. For what proved to be one of the first-ever multimedia performances, Selling England by the Pound remains a vivid memory for those privileged to have attended it. The timelessness of the artistry was such that almost 30 years later, the show is still contemporary, and enjoys a cult-like following. It has become a Classic… To pay homage to the artistic genius of Tony Banks, Phil Collins, Peter Gabriel, Steve Hackett and Mike Rutherford, that Classic is being restaged by The Musical Box. THE PROJECT A team of musicians, technicians and collectors invested years of work in reproducing the original Selling England by the Pound concert in painstaking detail. Both […]
