Prague, Czech Republic – Maraca (not to be confused with the Cuban band with the same name) is a group from the town of Zlín. It navigates the waters of jazz/world music. The group has composed music to go along with poems by the most famous modern Portuguese author, Fernando Pessoa.
On the band’s third album, Longe (Indies Records MAM206, 2003), one can listen to a wide variety of instruments such as the Arabic lute (ud), the Australian didjeridu, guitar, bass, percussion and violin. The members of the band and the guests have created a world of their own where even samples have their place.
