Biography

Fanfán Tulipán (Fanfan la Tulipe) begun to sprout in Spring 2009, planted by Eliška Svobodová, a student of composition at the Jaroslav Ježek Conservatory in Prague, joined by Dušan Navarík (flute; wrgha POWU Orchestra), Honza Mazura (piano; Emperor Penguin), Vlado Micenko (double-bass; wrgha POWU Orchestra), and Adrian Ševecek (drums; Maraca), later replaced by Cyril Lojda (Nedaba).
In April 2010 we won 1st price at Prague jazz festival Mladi ladi jazz, which enables us to record CD in professional studio 3Bees. These days we advanced to the finals of the contest at the festival Strings of Autumn with our cover version of song "Galang" by British rapper M.I.A.
In the garden where our Tulip grows, you may encounter Jules Verne, Kamil Lhoták, Mad Maria, Mark the Lark, or the silent marines. And if you listen carefully, you might hear hooping Orient Express and you might catch a few warm long-distance telegraphic messages.
