MONO + Bee and Flower in Prague Akropolis

MONO Japan going down the hill Palace Acropolis sometimes offers real music delicacies from the world production. Like today, when the performers are Mono, a post-rock group from Tokyo, that formed in late 1999, and Bee and Flower, a band that was founded in 1999 too, but in NYC, nowadays they reside in Berlin.

The music of Bee and Flower envelops the listener into an intimate, luxurious and orchestrated world, filled with moody strings, piano, percussion, ghostly slide guitars, and lush female vocals. Bee and Flower brings together elements of classically-arranged film-score soundtracks with well-crafted rock songwriting, creating a bold, unique and fluid style. Lyrically, the songs weave tales of the universal human experience: of hope and heartbreak, of love and living, and of isolation and oblivion.

Mono is a group which dominated Prague during their two concerts in 2006, and which is said to have ability to make their sound almost tangible. Mono are known for their powerful live performances. Part of their power in concert reportedly comes from their intense physical involvement in the music. It should also be noted that their shows are extremely loud, even to well-seasoned show goers. They effectively use dynamics to their advantage by playing extremely soft and then extremely loud, giving the impression of even more power.
