New Aliquot forms in Czech Republic

New AliquotA new group has formed in the Czech Republic, combing existing group High ReVoltage –  a trio made up of Ondra Kozák on guitar, Vítek Hanulík on mandolin, and Karel Začal on reso-guitar – with bassist Pavel Duda to form New Aliquot.

The members have performed with some of the top, award-winning bands in Europe, including Fragment, G-Runs ‘n Roses, Křeni, Jumper Cables, East-West, and others.

Together they will focus on their own original acoustic music, as well as familiar bluegrass and folk songs.

Ondra joked about why Pavel was added to the group while explaining why these four enjoy playing together so much.

“I‘ve been playing with Vítek and Karel for more than ten years now and they are really special to me. Besides being my family (Vítek is my brother-in-law and Karel is his cousin), I‘ve never experienced such musical interconnection like with these two extraordinarily talented people. We don‘t have to talk much, we just play and it works. Pavel is a great bass player and singer, very nice guy to be with, and he owns a big car so it‘s really a great deal.”

Here’s a brief video with some of their music, promoting their upcoming tour this weekend back home. The tour ends with a show that will be broadcast worldwide via ConcertWindow. It can be seen on Sunday (11/20) at 1:30 p.m. (EST) in the US.


Sunday’s live concert can also be seen starting at 7:30 p.m. in Czech Republic.
