February, the last month of winter, is the worst one. I am tired of winter, of the ever clouded sky, of lack of sunshine. And in these grey days I have met by chance three shining guys. At first all I could hear was distant sound of clarinet. I came closer and saw these guys playing joyful-melancholic music.
It suddenly felt like summer. Sun was shinning and it was unusually warm for end of February. There is one thing I love on summer and that’s the street artists. They bring poetry to dull day-to-day life. Unfortunately I can’t play music at all and I found it quite difficult to dance in rhythm but I am an enthusiastic listener. This music was exactly of my taste: playful but with sadness and melancholy underneath, and one can’t say what style it actually it. It was a mixture of folk and jazz and improvisation. I could not resist and bought their CD. Every peace looks different, every peace is original 🙂
Later I found out that Cermaque already released two albums and Jakub Cermak released two garners (at quite young age). It is not an easy listening like ABBA, it is fragile, gently disturbing and fascinating.
