Roman Veverka (1975)

Singer and cimbalist, author of music, songs and arrangements. In his interpretation he brings a distinctive combination of human voice and a cimbal. His vocal expression along with a specific way of the game with a new way of the dulcimer´s sound capturing reveals many other possibilities of this magical musical instrument in a symbiosis with singing.

He started to play the dulcimer after his studies of playing the trombone at the Brno Conservatory and musicology at the Philosophical Faculty of Masaryk University in Brno. Since his childhood he absorbed a very wide variety of music, which naturally led him to try to get to know a variety of musical instruments, from piano, guitar to the dulcimer. He played and sang in many choirs. Later he founded and led some of them. He wrote and arranged the music for them, which helped him improve his compositional and arranging skills.

Today, in addition to his own work, he works hard to reveal and interpret universal beauty of music and songs from many different sources, from folk songs through historical music to the world hits of famous interpreters of popular music, such as U2, Sting, Pink Floyd, Leonard Cohen, Elton John and others.

His wide repertoire and an effort to capture the deepest essence of each song is represented both in his solo performances and in non-traditional instrumental formations and connections (see musical projects). His Blue dulcimer already delighted audiences at concerts, festivals, celebrations, weddings, openings and other events in the Czech Republic, Slovak Republic, Austria, Poland and Hungary.
