What's that all about?
The orchestra HARLEMANIA emerged in 2011 from the tediously dozing jazz scene in Prague, Czech Republic.
Though the idea was inevitably levitating in the mists of the great music minds of the city for a long time, the final nudge came one day when the band leader realised that he had to wrench himself free from the soul destroying everydayness of life in a suburban. He bought some junk git box and then convinced some other desperate felows to become hipsters of the day and start this whole baloney.
Anyway, onyone who had read all this twaddle from tip to toe is also considered to be on his best way to become a maniac. Or perhaps a Harlemaniac?
