VIKTOR SLEZÁK - CONTRABASS - VOCALS
I first encountered folklore during my studies in Prague; although my major was clarinet, at that time I also started to play the double bass, and by chance I met the ensemble „The Spring“ („Jaro“) and their band. They were fantastic musicians and friends, who introduced me to the beauty of folk music and dance. When I left Prague in order to study in Germany, I missed our lovely songs so much that I decided to seek Czech musicians in Dresden – and this is how SlovaCzech was born. Although I chose cultural management and marketing as my profession, the folklore and SlovaCzech remain an integral part of my life.
