BraAgas to inspire Sarawak Rainforest World Musical Festival 2010

KUCHING: BraAgas will inspire festival-goers at Rainforest World Musical Festival 2010 (RWMF) with splendid vocals and danceworthy rhythms.

The four women from Prague play folk songs from across Europe.

They interpret traditional songs including from the Pyrenean peninsula (Sephardic, Galician), Provensal, Scandinavia as well as secular medieval songs from central Europe.

“Also they like to infuse their music with influences of oriental and Balkan rhythms,” said the Sarawak Tourism Board (STB) in a press statement yesterday.

BraAgas use replicas of old instruments such as cister, fiddle, shawns, chalumeaux, different knids of flutes and recorders and oriental percussion, as davul, darbuka, daf, riq and others, to give their music an exotic touch.

The band has played together since 2007 with many concerts in the Czech Republic and around Europe.

The band won the 2010 Andel Award (Czech Republic’s Grammy Awards) in Best World Music.
