Irena and Vojtech Havlovi

In more than thirty years of their joint activity, Czech artists Irena Havlová and Vojtěch Havel have passed through several distinctive stages of development. They started to work together in the mid-80s, at the experimental Capella Antiqua e Moderna ensemble which won both public and critical acclaim.

Irena and Vojtech are a husband-and-wife duo, who were able to develop what since the early 80s had been a very unorthodox approach to both historical and modern compositional techniques and interpretive procedures in classical and renaissance music. Throughout this development they traveled to north India in the Rajasthan to explore the Raga practices and make recordings leading them to unfold a unique sound and method, unassimilable repetitive and spiritual music.

Their performances range from string duo and vocals to 4 hands piano, the couple are often collaborating with Czech and international musicians, where their musical practice combines with a multitude of other instruments and styles. With a legacy of more than 20 albums, the Havlovis are currently working on a new album for Morphine Records.
