Get ready for a show by RAZAM and Iva Marešová taking place at The Loop Jazz Club Hostivař at the end of September. With strong Slavic roots, the group plays world music featuring musicians from the Czech Republic Belarus and Russia. The formation started out as a trio made up of Marešová, Yasinski and Vašíček and together they released the successful album “Kéž bouře by přišla”. The musicians went on to join forces with the Russian viola player Ilia Chernoklinov and the drummer Radek Doležal, renaming the group RAZAM and Iva Marešová.

Their songs are characterised by the accordion played by the phenomenal Belarusian accordionist Aliakandr Yasinski and the distinctive voice of Iva Marešová. In 2022 RAZAM and Iva Marešová released the CD “Harpyje u pramene”.
