ABOUT SLOVACKO JUNIOR
“Dulcimer music „Slovácko junior” (Cimbálová muzika Slovácko mladší) was founded in August 2000 in Mikulčice. Mikulčice is the village where lived and worked folk songs composer – František Hřebačka, better known as Fanoš Mikulecký. The chosen “Slovácko junior” was not a random. We would like to continue and spread the tradition that in our community successfully developed legendary folk music “Slovácko” led by bandleader Přemysl Líčeník since 1 March 1965, to preserve the beauty of folk songs for future generations.
The core of our repertoire are folk songs from our home region Podluží and popular composer Fanoš Mikulecký, that evoke memories of our “picturesque region” Podluží. We also play songs from other regions of Moravia, Bohemia, Slovakia or Hungary. Apart from the standard repertoire of dulcimer music, folk songs and orchestral pieces, we also play world’s well-known songs and movie tunes.
You may listen to our music as well as dance to it.”
ABOUT THE HAMMERED DULCIMER
The hammered dulcimer is a percussion-stringed instrument which consists of strings typically stretched over a trapezoidal resonant sound board. The hammered dulcimer is set before the musician, who, in more traditional styles, may sit cross legged on the floor, or at a more modern style of standing or sitting at a wooden stand on legs. The player holds a small spoon shaped mallet hammer in each hand to strike the strings (cf. Appalachian dulcimer). The Graeco-Roman dulcimer (sweet song) derives from the Latin dulcis (sweet) and the Greek melos (song). The dulcimer, in which the strings are beaten with small hammers, originated from the psaltery, in which the strings are plucked. Hammered dulcimers, and other similar instruments, are traditionally played in Iraq, India, Iran, Southwest Asia, China, and parts of Southeast Asia, Central Europe (Hungary, Romania, Slovakia, Poland, Czech Republic, Switzerland (particularly Appenzell), Austria and Bavaria), the Balkans, Eastern Europe (Ukraine and Belarus) and Scandinavia. The instrument is also played in the United Kingdom (Wales, East Anglia, Northumbria) and the U.S., where its traditional use in folk music saw a notable revival in the late 20th century.
ABOUT SLOVACKO (Moravian Slovakia)
Moravian Slovakia (Czech: Slovácko) or Slovácko is a cultural region in the southeastern part of the Czech Republic, Moravia on the border with Slovakia (Czech: Slovensko) and Austria, known for its characteristic folklore, music, wine, costumes and traditions. The area forms part of both the Zlín and South Moravian administrative regions.
Its most important center is the town of Uherské Hradiště which is located on the Morava River. Other important population centers include Uherský Brod, Břeclav, Hodonín, Strážnice and Kyjov. In the 9th century the region of Moravian Slovakia was the centre of the Great Moravian empire.
Native Moravians speak Moravian dialects of the Czech language, and the dialects native to this region are influenced by neighboring Slovak speakers, hence the name “Moravian Slovakia.” Due to these cultural and linguistic links to Slovakia, many ethnographers until the 20th century used to consider Moravian Slovaks as a people which politically belonged to Moravia and the Bohemian Crown but ethnographically and culturally to the Slovak ethnic group. Historically, there were also significant numbers of German speakers who also influenced local speech.
