Milokraj Marta Töpferová & Tomáš Liška

Album by New York based (but Czech by origin) singer Marta Töpferová and Czech double bassist and composer Tomáš Liška contains new music they both co-penned using their national background, inspired by Moravian and Czech folk music and adding experience they share in the world of contemporary music, jazz and world music. In recording this original project they joined forces with other outstanding musicians – Czech guitarist David Dorůžka, Slovak violinist Stano Palúch and Moldavian cimbalom player Marcel Comendant. Töpferová and Liška on their way to MILOKRAJ (= Beloved Land) are searching for their personal and musical identity, for the dreamed-of home inside their own hearts.
