PACORA TRIO Short Info

PaCoRa Trio consists of three experienced musicians - violinist Stanislav Palúch, cimbalom player Marcel Comendant and double-bass player Róbert Ragan. The music they make is based on the interfacing of jazz and folklore music, coloured by elements of jazz improvisations.
These three men recorded their first CD Pacora Trio in 2005. Shortly after the release, the CD received positive responses ( 4-star rating, BBC Music Magazine in June 2006). Pacora Trio started to perform in top concert venues of jazz and world music in Europe.
The trio has collaborated on various projects. For example, in 2007 the trio was invited by Brno Philharmonic Orchestra to perform the compositions of Pacora in arrangements for orchestra. It was a great success and this music is regularly performed with prominent orchestras. How would the mergence of jazz, folk and old music sound? Perhaps as the popular project Heroes performed by Pacora Trio and Early music ensemble Societas Incognitorum in 2008. Moravian folk songs? Pacora Trio has collaborated on the album Nezachod slunecko of Jitka Suranska, that won the Czech Angel Award 2013 in category Folk & World music.
The second Pacora Trio album entitled Fugit Hora was released in 2012. While the first album is more jazzy with a folklore feeling (resembling Django Reinhard style with cimbalom instead of guitar), the second, on the contrary, is more rooted in Slovak and Moldavian folklore with a gentle touch of jazz.
The last album Ornamenty inspired by Slovak folk music, is a common project of Pacora Trio, SLUK and Marek Pastirik.
The trio consists of stunning musicians and Stano Palúch is without doubt one of the most distinct music personalities in Slovakia. We can be sure that this band, while seeking new challenges, still moves music with virtuosity to delighted audiences in many forms.
