The 4th edition of the compilation put together by several Slovak publishers and music organizations under the name Ostrov hudby (Island of Music) is out.
Ostrov Hudby again shows the will of Slovak music scene to join forces, unite for a common goal and continue in the legacy of famous Slovak journalist Juraj Kušnierik (sadly passed away in November 2015). The original idea of the project, which connects and supports the domestic scene and presents it abroad is still present, however the concept of song selection has changed a bit. It is no longer about previously unreleased compositions, but rather an overview of interesting music that was released or created in Slovakia in the past year. Independent publishers and the media again contributed with their tips and advice and its goal is mutual assistance and promotion of Slovak music at home and abroad.
