Nowadays I have more to write than to sing. Read this with an ease of being and wish for early singing! Maginhrad is a hill above Botto's birthplace, Vyšný Skálnik.
At the end of last year, I decided to record the songs gradually, one at a time (my source of inspiration is the work of Ján Botto), and that in this way I would experience isolation healthy, responsible and sensible. I did not expect to be so overwhelmed by the suffering that the covid period brought. My recording plans were stuck.
I like stories in songs. I respond to those that fundamentally touch me. The song Báj Maginhradu was composed without long speeches in my rehearsal room. I sent the home recording to three musicians - Peter Luha (guitar), Peter Korman (double bass) and Michal Fedor (drums) in December.
In the summer I was supposed to play at Čachtice Castle and for that occasion I decided to make a song from poem by Ján Botto about the Lady of Čachtice. The concert was canceled due to the coronavirus crisis and the song remained in the drawer, but not for long. Its premiere took place in the autumn in the form of a video clip sponsored by Jádu magazine,
