Slovak folk songs in a contemporary musical language

Zuzana Mojžišová is one of the most prominent figures on our music scene, who was among the first to achieve international recognition as a pioneer of the world music genre in Slovakia. This exceptional singer has been arranging and interpreting folk songs since 2000. She has released the successful albums Jej družina and Zuzana Mojžišová a jej družina. Her third album, Zuzana Mojžišová, received four nominations and two IFPI Aurel 2004 awards, as well as a ranking high on the World Music Chart Europe. The concert recording of the Slovak-Czech “World Music Tour” was broadcast in 14 EBU countries.

After a long pause, she returned spectacularly at the end of 2019 with her current album Puščaňa, which successfully followed up on her previous work. Zuzana Mojžišová once again reveals the wealth hidden in Slovak folk music. She processes unknown folk songs musically with respect to the musical tradition and with an effort to preserve as much musical essence as possible, while presenting innovative compositions in a contemporary musical language. She collaborated with well-known musicians (M. Škuta, S. Palúch, O.Török, R. Andris) on the new concert arrangement for the project Puščaňa.
