19:00 NÁPLAVKA – Khamoro party on Vltava river: Le Čhavendar/CZ, Maroš Bango & Fantasy Orchestra Ladislava Rigu/SK, Shantel (DJ Session)/DE
The party on the “Náplavka” (Rašínova nábřeží) in Prague will start with a young band from Rokycany, Le Čhavendar and will continue with the Slovak artists Maroš Bango and Ladislav Rig’s Fantasy Orchestra, and if your hips aren’t swaying by then, we promise that DJ Shantel of Germany will get you dancing with his mix of Balkan and electronic music.
LE ČHAVENDAR / Czech Republic
The boy band Le Čhavendar literally grew up with Romani music, as they are the sons of the top musicians in the music group Kale. In their families they learned traditional Romani melodies and, following their fathers’ examples, have enriched them by also learning flamenco, jazz, and Latin music. Le Čhavendar’s musical qualities are attested to by their many performances at big festivals abroad and in the Czech Republic. They were awarded the Zlíntalent 2005 prize for best original work when their song Sako vakerel – Každý si povídá (Everybody Talks) won against more than 500 compositions.
WHERE AND WHEN:
Náplavka, Rašínovo nábřeží /29. 5. 2016/
MAROŠ BANGO & FANTASY ORCHESTRA LADISLAVA RIGA / Slovakia
If you like the arias of operas and operettas as well as Hungarian, Romani and Russian songs, then this artist from Slovakia is the right choice for you. The charismatic performer Maroš Bango is visually impaired but nonetheless plays four musical instruments brilliantly, accompanying himself as he sings. Many of you might remember him from the 2010 Eurosong Contest, where he participated in the final round. He will appear on the Náplavka in Prague with the cimbalom (hammered dulcimer) music of Ladislav Rig’s Fantasy Orchestra.
