Orbis Mundi – Adia

Orbis Mundi – Adia escapes from the stylised, national illustration, listening to the massive loudspeakers of the large cars that contain middle-aged micro-chambers, trying to impress their dog’s surroundings, but it does not convince you of its authenticity. He basically lacks this thing that stays when everything else collapses. And this is the quintessence of art.… Read more

Calm, but memorable, suggestive, and not explaining everything thoroughly. Giving the listener the opportunity to find deeply hidden secrets, as if hidden in the ruins of the treasure. Leaving pauses that serve as resting places between notes and are some sort of triggers for imagination.… Read more

SlovaCzech – At Midnight (Bohemian Christmas Music)

The instrumental arrangements of Christmas songs lead us to Slovakia, Germany or Hungary and even to fardistant Irland …. The joyful tidings of the birth of Messiah are played and sung by SlovaCzech in different languages and dialects. With their monolithic content these songs are still a proof of the European Christian community.… Read more
