Folkloric Show and Dinner

Although a traditional Czech proverb says “Every Czech is a musician”, of course, there are exceptions to his rule. Nowadays, folklore is mostly a matter of hobby groups or takes on the form of folklore shows. What’s important is that the music always springs from the heart. It has the power to strike that good old familiar chord that most of the time sleeps inside us. That was my main criteria in selecting a Folklore Show I’d like to invite you to.
The show takes places in a peaceful spot downtown, in a restaurant that was recently reconstructed. Its purpose was to create a space big enough to host a folklore show and serve a typical Czech dinner, without losing its intimate character. The musical traditions of the specific regions of our country will be introduced during individual segments. These are primarily from South Bohemia and Moravia, where songs tend to praise the local wines. But we will also peek into Slovakia, where the iconic instrument is the fujara (a shepherds’ flute). However, the instrument most gracefully dominating the evening will be the cimbalom (hammered dulcimer). No folklore group that would be able to succeed without it, or more precisely, without a virtuoso playing it. Naturally, there will also be singing, this time performed by a beautiful singer and hostess in one. There are also a pair of young dancers who will dance for us in authentic traditional costumes.

We are most grateful for your expertise and can highly recommend you for other groups desiring a most competent and knowledgeable English-speaking guide.(Linda A. Graf, USA) * We also have just returned from a magical trip to Prague and having the use of Prague Arts Tour. Jana was an exceptional tour guide who made our trip to Prague all that more interesting and informative. After the tour we felt quite at home and we were able to explore the city with a firm understanding of the history of the city that we received from Jana. Prague Arts Tour and Jana are spot on. Thanks again Jana. (Margo and Guy from Canada) * Last September we toured the main cities of Central Europe with a bilingual group from Canada. During two weeks, Jana guided us through the different cities and buildings sharing with us her vast knowledge of art, history and daily life in her part of the world. We found her to be very professional at all times and eager to make sure everyone questions and worries were answered. She was flexible to the demands of the group and always tried to please everyone. She communicated clearly the daily activities in both languages and made us feel safe at all times. Jana's greatest asset is her love for her job and as a result she paints for you a picture of the beauty, opulence and the grandeur of these imperial cities. Her passion and professionalism made it all worthwhile. Thank you Jana. (Lise and Frank Loiocano; Canada)
