BÁRA ZMEKOVÁ (CZ)

“HURT“ CHANSON SOMEWHERE BETWEEN FOLK, JAZZ, ELECTRONICS AND CLASSICAL MUSIC

AN ORIGINAL SONGWIRTE WITH HER BAND SUSSUSSFUL ABROAD.

She sings her hurt chanson, as she calls her songs somewhere between folk, jazz, electronics and classical music, in Czech and she doesn’t want to change it, no matter that she is famous abroad. She received the main award on showcase Czech Music Crossroads and she was also successful in Womex, and it proved that her songs performed by her gentle voice don’t need to be translated into English.She plays the piano and uses synthesisers, she is accompanied by the band, which understands her personal and gentle performance. She sings about serious topics, but she doesn’t go to extremes, and when poetry isn’t enough she uses humour. She doesn’t moralize, she more listens to nature and people.
