ABOUT THE PROJECT

The project is based around a music video – set to a Villonesque ballad called „Vláda dušiček“. Its content and mood gave rise to the multimedia project THE PARLIAMENT OF SOULS which is growing year by year.

PROJECT DEVELOPMENT AND FORMS

The international multimedia project THE PARLIAMENT OF SOULS currently consists of two parts:
We have recorded the song with Czech lyrics and made an accompanying music video „Vláda dušiček“. We have created an English and French version of the lyrics, and recorded an international version of the song under the title The Parliament of Souls shown as part of the 1st edition of the music festival at the Žofín Palace, Prague 2016
(which was dedicated to Václav Havel).

After the 2nd edition at the Hybernia Theater in Prague (2017), now we are preparing for the 3rd edition of the ROCK FOR SOUL / All Souls‘ Celebration festival 2018

We believe that art connects us, enriches us and makes us more receptive and tolerant.

MUSIC FESTIVAL

The 3rd edition of the ROCK FOR SOUL 2019 music festival will be held in Prague on November 1nd.
