Bio

Jablkon as a special “reloaded“ guest artist entering opening act of the 20th TFF Rudolstadt 2010 rocked the crowds. After 20 years again, this great success follows the comeback of the Czech legend to the world music scene!
During their career spanning 3 decades their music ran counter to every existing fashion.
During the Communist totalitarian regime they faced, like many other bands, prohibition, censorship and further difficulties. Nevertheless, they managed to gain a good reputation thanks to their original music. After the Velvet Revolution and the fall of Communism, the band took advantage of open borders and started giving concerts abroad. At that time they also established cooperation with a violin virtuoso Jaroslav Sveceny and various symphonic orchestras (altogether five) in experimental projects called Jablkon & Sveceny and Symphonic Jablkon. Since 2000 the band has been giving concerts and recording music, besides that they have also recorded two film soundtracks, several TV and theatre productions and have regularly performed with a dance acrobatic troupe Galumpha (USA). During the last ten years Jablkon has become much younger, which means that out of the former lineup there has remained only “the soul of the band“ Michal Nemec. Nowadays Jablkon is playing in this lineup: Michal Nemec (vocals, guitar – author of the majority of music and lyrics), Michal Carvan (guitars, chorus), Johnny Judl (bass-guitar, electrical guitar, bassoon, chorus), Petr Chlouba (drums, percussions, accordion, chorus). All of them graduated at a Conservatory or the Academy of Performing Arts. The main figure on the stage is Michal Nemec, a giant singer, Martin Carvan is an elegant and brilliant guitar magician, Johnny Judl a robust, uncompromisingly playing bassist and Petr Chlouba is a multi-handed drummer who rumbles, jingles or strokes as needed. Undoubtedly, today Jablkon is influenced by various contemporary musical streams, however its music remains unique and inimitably enticing.

Jablkon’s discography includes eight CDs, plus one Best of CD, one Live CD selection, two more Live CDs with a symphonic orchestra and a DVD. Jablkon has won two Andel Music Awards (Czech parallel to Grammy Awards) and has been nominated for this award eight times.
