Blind musician and vagabond Sakra Buraja brings songs stolen on his travels. This savage plays with only one hand, while he uses the other to capture the most talented musicians in places he visits, whom he enslaves! When you see him, you will want to dislike this scoundrel. But as soon he starts to play, you'll be immediately transported: the music is irresistible and you're a part of it. Before you notice, you are already on the road with this mixture of (im)perfect sounds, energy, peculiar humor and love, embarking on this trip, dancing, trying to hitch a car!
Sakra Buraja is an international project set up to explore and extend the musical tradition of Central and Eastern Europe through fusion with jazz and other wold music tendencies, using composition, savage energy and improvisation. Founded by Vladimír Cháb, a film composer from Prague, it was intended from the very beginning as an open musical project, with space for all kinds of musical encounters and guest appearances. The project has already brought together musicians coming from a wide range of background that stretches from experienced interprets of classical music, sambistas, street musicians, jazz improvisers and total musical analphabets to a straw-pipe blower in the middle of the Amazon rainforest.
Midnight Recordings Inspired by extensive touring, "Midnight Recordings" is the band's debut release on New York based Hero Water Records. Its sound morphs from track to track, latin influence fusing with Eastern Europe.
