This is a touching story of great love, savagery and passion between bandit Nicola Sohaj and beautiful Erzika taking place in Carpathian Ruthenia (the very eastern part of Czechoslovakia after 1918, now Ukraine). The story is based on the book by Ivan Olbracht, first adapted into the play premiering in Goose on the String Theater in 1975 and later made into the film. The original Eastern songs has been popularized over the years and broadcast on radio.

Dancing on Architecture

I think it was Frank Zappa – though others claim it was Laurie Anderson – who said in an interview that ‘writing on music is much like dancing on architecture’.
