29th August 2017  |  News

This bonus CD is exclusively available with the October (#131) edition of Songlines

The Czech language uses the same word – hranice – for bonfire and borderline. Czechia (the Czech Republic) is simultaneously at the warm heart of a burning fire, but also on the musical border between Western and Eastern Europe. The western part (including Prague) is more industrialised and the rural south and south-east is where local traditions are kept alive. Although Moravia in the east has a separate name, Czech is still spoken here. The lifestyle is different, however, and the rhythms are more playful, melodies more ornamented.

This 16-track CD features many of the top artists.
