Benefit concert for Máca supporting underground legend the Plastics and alternative group Zrní.
Marcel „Máca" Dufek is a person with disability, which is called Cerebral palsy (CP). He is unable to control his limbs and needs help from others to normal activity. He receives this kind of help from care center Akord and privat assistants. The costs of the "independent" life is about 40,000 CZK per month. Part of it covers retirement, but the rest he must coverage himself. He gets „extra money” from his lectures for companies and schools and from sponsorship.
If he cant get the money he ended up in one of care institutions, which is opposite the idea of free life.

We are Zrní.
Gentle artbrut, coal Zen from Kladno. We enjoy discovering new possibilities and combinations in music. To play, to be together in the musical landscape that we are the creators of.
We like to explore, express and share our feelings. Most of our songs comes from joint improvisation. We find inspiration in nature, its permanent principles, landscape, folk music, but also in this hasty, electronic age that brings sounds of machinery, cars, towns, specifically human feelings, situations and new musical opportunities.
We are a party of five men, playing together since 2001, still the same people. Through music we want to show the desire of observation, fascination by ourselves, we want to take life as a game and a great experience. Don´t give a shit about the outfit.
“Zrní” are a game, coal Zen from Kladno.

Formed in 1968 in Czechoslovakia, the Plastic People of the Universe are widely credited with helping to inspire the kind of free thinking and artistic expression that launched Czechoslovakia’s “Velvet Revolution” of the late ’80s and toppled the Communist government in 1989. The band, influenced by such American artists as the Velvet Underground, the Doors and Frank Zappa, forged a unique brand of dark, freewheeling jazz-rock with often-surreal lyrics that quickly drew the attention of the country’s authoritarian government. In 1976, the group’s members were jailed for “organized disturbance of the peace” following one of their concerts. The arrest and jailing led to the formation of a collective of artists and intellectuals called Charter 77, whose leader was future Czech Republic President Václav Havel.
