Allstar Refjúdží Band Pohoda will have also Allstar Refjúdží Band. The band consists of musicians of different nationalities, religions, and attitudes. They introduce energy packed, self-ironic, and sincere reflection on life in Central Europe seen with the eyes of foreigners.
Allstar Refjúdží Band is a project of the Archa Theatre in Prague. Their music comprises Kurdish folk and pop, Eastern European style accordion, Chinese opera and pop music, tunes from the Swiss mountains and cabarets, Dixieland, brass, rap, and other genres. They released albums SPAS! and Kdo žere psy?. Legendary is their recording of the Czech anthem Kde domov můj or parody protestsong Zůstaň tady!. Since their formation in 2008, they have played at the biggest festivals in the Czech Republic and Slovakia, as well as in Pittsburgh, Warsaw, Berlin, Dresden, Rotterdam, The Hague, Haarlem, and many other cities. The people who had to leave their homes performed last December at the event Doma Dobre (loose translation is “feel good at home”) for the people who do not have a home. At Pohoda 2017, Allstar Refjúdží Band will symbolically welcome the Sun.
