Synopsis

Album Description
The music of Bohemians, Czechs, Slovaks and Moravians who settled in south central Texas is lively music from central Europe with a Texas flair. The first settlers arrived in Texas almost 150 years ago and they have maintained a strong cultural cohesion, while adapting to new influences. These recordings, drawn from recent years, typify the very active and vital dance music scene of today.

BEST OF BOTH WORLDS
VINCE KONICEK | PALM DESERT, CALIFORNIA, USA | 06/19/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"CZECH AND ENGLISH POLKA MUSIC - THE BEST OF BOTH WORLDS. When you listen to this CD your memories of childhood and happy times will surface. The happy lilt of Czech music lifts your spirits no matter what your "roots" are, but if you are from a Czech or Moravian background you will be even more affected by this fantastic recording."
