“Lambs and Wolves” [“Beránci a vlci”]

Brno, Aug 23 (BD) – In the Eastern Moravia, Western and Eastern cultural expressions have been influencing each other for centuries. This musical performance combines folk songs and the author’s compositions based on the traditional music of the region. The author of the musical suite and film script “Lambs and Wolves” [“Beránci a vlci”] is Marian Friedl. Ivo Bystřičan stood behind the camera and directed the film.
Both music and film genres connect and intermingle during the performance: music genres (folk, jazz, world music, pop) and film genres (documentary, musical film, “mockument”, experimental film). “Lambs and Wolves” blurs “the boundaries between now and then, between life and death, lambs and wolves, happy and sad, between positive and negative,” Marian Friedl explains.
Four different musical ensembles take part in the project: Jitka Šuranská Trio (interpreting folklore songs from Moravia in the genre of world music), Women’s choir from Kudlovice [Czech: “Ženský sbor z Kudlovic”] (traditional choral singing in Eastern Moravia), RukyNaDudy band (traditional music of the Beskydy mountains), and Independent Jazzmen Association [Czech: “Sdružení nezávislých jazzmenů”].
The new jazz and folklore album “Lambs and Wolves” [“Beránci a vlci”] was awarded the Czech musical award Anděl 2017 in the folk category.
