Zvuk for Modra / Sound for Modra
Inspired by the Zvuk for Štiavnica festival, we at Spectaculum production decided to start a new international music festival tradition in Modra. During its preliminary year (Zvuk for Modra 2019), the courtyard of Modra’s Town Hall, the community garden, the Protestant Church and a café all transformed into spaces that came alive with the sounds of (not only) jazz. We were looking for a small picturesque Slovak town, offering a unique atmosphere, history, spaces, and generally, a specific Genius Loci; and we found all these qualities in Modra! Together with the Town, local artists, café owners, and the employees of Modra’s Cultural Centre, we believe that music belongs in Modra. Joining our efforts, we wish to create a new tradition for a festival in non-traditional spaces.
