Of this song Jitka writes:

“The name of the song is “Brodil Janko koně” ..which means – Janko went over the ford with horses.
He got drowned. His girlfriend is desperate at first. And than she decides to die with him. because her life doesn’t make sense without him anymore..
She is singing – Make 2 coffins..Make 2 graves..We are going to lie there 2 of us…

Strong, isn’t it? And this strong morbid text is so soft in Moravian poetic dialect..That’s why I love Moravian traditional songs..There is raw truth of life in it..And there is so much beauty in it in the same time..

Welcome!

Here’s where you’ll find my weekly original world music video blogs that appear on Huffington Post, as well as an archive starting in April of 2009.

This is also the place where you will find video that is exclusive to my site. I’ve traveled to places like Uzbekistan, Morocco, and Taiwan and no matter where I go I have found amazingly talented and creative people working in every genre from the deepest traditions to the cutting edge.

It’s been incredibly rewarding to interview them and to capture some of what they do on video. Enjoy what you see and hear, and let me know what you think. I welcome your feedback.
