Ká ~ Friendly Greetings from Pre​-​War Bohemia (Přátelské pozdravy z předválečných Čech)

A new year begins with questions, wishes and hope.  Will there be peace on earth?  Will the world turn back from the precipice?  At the very least, will this year be better than the last?  Searching, if not for answers,

ACL 2017 ~ Top Ten Field Recording & Soundscape
