Narajama biography
NARAJAMA was found in 1991, outskirts of Prague. Petr Valos (guitar), Petr Goldman (drums), Igor Judas (bass) and Michal Mihal (vocals). First album has been made in 1993 and it was called "Webs", even not oficially released. Some members left and new positions were taken by Roman Kouřil (guitar), Bohdana Petrů (cimbalom) and Milan Bílovský (vocals).

The groups signed papers with Indies Records and released two albums, "Vytancuj chmury" in 1996 (Dance Away Fears) and "V tom víně je nalháno" in 1997 (This wine is full of lies). The band successfully finished third record with working title "Mej", but it hasn't been released yet and maybe won't be, because the band disbanded somewhere after these two albums, but there has been rumors that they have had some reherseals and plan to join together again.

Their music is mix of Avant and Rock, having weird atmosphere in music, depressive, or nonsense lyrics, this band is another of golden age of Avant in Czech 90's.

Review by Marty McFly
Special Collaborator Errors and Omissions Team

4 stars I learned long time ago that Eclectic sometimes means Weird. Yes, Weird because this sometimes has so dark atmosphere and weird sounds that I thought it's Avant Garde. It actually isn't, just partially. When there are lyrics, they're crazy and nonsensical (exactly as I like it), that's for sure. But there is a lot of instrumental tracks.

It's Rock, sometimes Hard Rock, there is a lot of Heavy influences and bass line is quite strong. There's also this rare instrument dulcimer that can be heard from time to time.

Entire album is about 54 minutes long, exploring different themes, but in general, it all sounds influenced by Eastern European folk tunes, maybe even Turkish ones. This record sounds more pessimistic than optimistic, but nothing that will cause you to wet your pants, don't expect horror here. It's actually very pleasant when you're in the right mood.

Překrásný let chladivým vzduchem ("Beautiful flight through the air that chills") has even dissonant sounds, but they're by no mean unpleasant.

This is simply one of these obscure albums that you either have to be local (which in case of small country like Czech Republic means all of my country), or to have luck on good finding in your local shop. Or, the most possible way for you dear readers is to somehow acquire this album - shops, friends, or other means of getting music honestly.

4(+), even not having visible mistakes and I'm certainly moved, it's not as good as the best star rating would like it to be.

But it's damn good.
