An intimate sound of Slovak folk ballads with the specific vocal feeling of Zuzana Homolová.
Trojka is the trio of singer Zuzana Homolová, who has been well-known for her arrangements of Slovak folk ballads for several decades, guitarist and multi-instrumentalist Miloš Železňák and violinist Samo Smetana. In their music, and on their most recent album, they blur the artificial lines between folk, world music, chanson and renaissance music in an innovative, strikingly minimalist way.

Ňet vekšeho rozkošu (Slnko records, 20013)
Zuzana Homolová – lead vocal, guitar
Samo Smetana – violin, vocal
Miloš Železnák – guitar, multi – instrumentalist
“Consists of her long-standing sideman Samo Smetana playing the violin and a multi-genre guitarist Miloš Železňák, well-known for his jazz, blues and rock projects. Their current project is a concert version of the album I Won’t Let Your Soul Pass Away proving that the cooperation of musicians resulted in further unanticipated dimensions. While searching for the very fundamentals of the human existence, for features lurking from the subconscious of the human mind, they emphasise a concise form of the songs and stories of the past.”
