Zkoleduj se

The Advent charity project of concerts entitled "Zkoleduj se" (GET CAROLLED) was first initiated by the Czech actor Petr Vaňek three years ago; this Christmas it is finally released as a studio recording. The album comprises 13 Christmas songs, mostly folk songs in original, playful arrangements by Marek Doubrava who is a member of Hmm… band. His arrangements are based on the tradition of lively and entertaining collective carol singing. The vocal parts have been undertaken by excellent actor-singers Adéla Petřeková, Petra Kosková, Magdaléna Borová, Jan Meduna, Richard Fiala, Ondřej Nosálek and Petr Vaněk who have been joined by Pavla Fendrichová, originally their vocal coach, and many of whom also accompany themselves on musical instruments. The energy with which they set about performing the multi-vocal passages in which it is impossible to overhear the influence by vocalists such as Bobby McFerrin can be an inspiration to listeners to join in and create a truly Christmas atmosphere – all the more so that the singing band of actors has been joined by their children in the studio. A reliable rhythmic base for the singer-instrumentalists led by Marek Doubrava has been provided by the duo Rastislav Uhrík (double bass, member of Vertigo) and Martin Kopřiva (drums, member of Lanugo).
