To preserve healthy body and mind, I need to be constantly on the move. Right now I oscillate between two completely different landscapes - Cool Mountains and Hong Kong. Acting as excellent storytellers, the spirits of past and present still haunt these places and write their texts into minds of locals.

Didier Awadi

It was wednesday evening and I had no plan for the evening. I was thinking about studying for an exam, which awaits me in two months - as I did for the three last evenings, but then my mobile phone rang and on the other end of the line was my friend Martin telling me, that he is going to the gig of Didier Awadi tonight... "Who is that?" is asked him. "Dunno, but heard that he is from Senegal and he totally rocked the place at Fleda club in the second biggest Czech city Brno!" he replied. Then I asked about entrance fee... "Three hundred crowns? Man, I am no...

Perpignan, Barcelona and Festa d'Hiver

"Step on the gas! FULL THROTTLE!" I was shouting to Tyna, my friend, who was currently behind the steering wheel. I was jokin', because we were approaching Perpignan some 6 hours before the gig - in our small Citroën Saxo car and behind us was a half of the Europe - 20 hours of driving, 1600 kms... Yep, the same car that took us to Amsterdam to see Asian Dub Foundation gig now covered a distance from Prague to the southern France. We were tired, but anxious to see our friend, who studies in Perpignan and we were really lookin' forward to go to Festa d'Hiver...

London 2005

We arrived to London with a 6 hour delay (thank you very much immigration officers), so everything was very quick. I can say that we entered Herbal right from the bus. A few moments before we met Redd at Liverpool station and the evening was about to start! I returned back to this place after one year with a good memories of course! So there was no problem to find a way to Herbal for me. The last time I visited this club, I saw (and heard :-)) an ultimate Nasha Eastern Drums and Breaks show, after which I was hovering on the enge of the death... THAT tired I was from dancing and partying......

Looptroop Rockers

The Looptroop Carnival in da house! Hell yeah, well-known and (d'apres moi) mos def the best european hiphop crew brought their phat beatz in the capital of Czech Republic. The loud and angry swedish vikings were about to make an outstanding show in the most known czech club - Roxy. I entered the club in a company of famous MC Monno from the Prague-based hiphop crew called Projekt-ill and his girlfriend (Eva, thanx for the tickets!). It was full of young people, wearing FUBU stuff and showing, that hiphop is not only music, but also the fucking way of living... The start was...

Lyon Calling Tour

One day I checked the official website of Roxy, the most known Prague club, which was closed during the summer because of reconstructionand I find out, that the famous french group Le Peuple de l'Herbe is coming to the town...

On the internet I found out, that Le Peuple are coming in a company of 2 other french bands - electronic dub experimentatorsHigh Tone and afro-ethno-jazz group Mei Tei Sho...Lyon calling tour - that is the name of this mini-festival, which is a creation of this 3 groups...
