Prague, Czech Republic –
The new album by Radůza, V hoře, became one of the
best selling CDs in the Czech Republic immediately after its release in April,
and still stays there. Such a thing happened for the first time in the history
of Indies Records – number one on the IFPI Charts. V hoře links up to the
preceding album, Při mně stůj, but it also does better in
many ways.Various languages are heard on this album besides Czech:
French, Polish, and Russian. Most of the songs are accompanied by
accordion and, in some cases, by guitar. Some of the songs
are brightened up by interesting guests who took part . For example the
guitarist from KOA, Omar Khaouj; Frantisek Raba with his double-bass and violin;
and Ivanka Pokorna with her harp.
V hoře‘s pieces oscillate from chanson through reggae towards
inspiration by folk or classical music.
