Traditional Slovak Music
Folk music is the core of traditional Slovak music. Each music style varies from region to region. This means there is lot of variety available when it comes to Slovak folk music. One instrument all regions have in common is the fujara, a high shepherd pipe. The fujara carries a strong resemblance to the look of the Australian didgeridoo and sounds like a combination of a didgeridoo and a pan flute. This sound adds a touch of mystique to traditional Slovak music and makes it ideal for relaxation and meditation.
Modern Slovak Music
Modern Slovak music exists in any imaginable genre, from pop to heavy metal. Slovakia had a great influence on Jazz music and the Blues in the 1950's and some of this influence can still be heard in modern Slovak music today. Some of the top modern singers of Slovakia include Marika Gombitovï¿½, Pavol Hammel and Janko Lehotskï¿½, are the three top artists with the most albums since the 1960's. Jana Kirschner, a former beauty pageant contestant, is still very popular and became the best selling female artist in 1999, a title that still holds true today.
