About Koonda Holaa It’s a brain child of Kamilsky, born in the late 60’s in Teplice, Czech Republic in what would later be singled out as of one of the most polluted places in Europe. He walked attached to a microphone, through his grandma’s attic straight into a music school at the age of 5 to come out seven years later as an over trained folk singer. In 1984 he went electric and worked his way thru local bands before landing a guitar/singer post in the F.P.B. in 1986, then and now one of the most original and infamous punk rock underground bands the Czech music scene produced in the 80’s. Kamilsky landed in Munich in 1990 after two years imprisonment by the now expired communist government and started Pseudo Pseudo (drums and bass guitar duo) with Milan Novy as a drummer.Koonda_Holaa

Dumbo Gets Mad emerged in the summer of 2010 in Northern Italy and has now migrated to Los Angeles. His initial aim was to lay down some marvelous music in an organic manner, open to whatever direction the tunes took during the recording session. Dumbo decided to work with an express goal and spirit in mind: “No matter what it sounded like, it had to be psychedelic!” The result is Elephants At The Door available on vinyl and for a free download in exchange for a facebook share or a tweet. http://freemusicarchive.org/music/Dumbo_Gets_Mad/ http://www.facebook.com/DumboGetsMadMusic
