The ORIGINAL PRAGUE SYNCOPATED ORCHESTRA is a Czech professional ensemble focused on 1920’s American jazz, blues and hot dance music. It is considered to be one of the most stylistically pure and artistically convincing ensembles of its kind in the world. Thanks to the use of historical instruments, forgotten playing techniques and sophisticated arrangements, the sound of the orchestra is both uniquely authentic and original at the same time. The orchestra was found in 1974 by Pavel Klikar – trumpet player, piano player, musicologist & expert in this genre.
