Ivo Sedlacek

Ivo is a graduate of the Musical Faculty of the Academy of Performing Arts in Prague where he studied classical violin. He then spent some years in India studying Indian classical music with some of India’s most famous musicians. Apart from classical music Ivo was always drawn to yet more subtle music dimensions and gradually developed his own unique and original style where each tone is deeply present and touching the heart and soul of every listener.

He performed concerts and conducted workshops throughout the world and created over twenty albums with his original music.

Pavel Sedlacek

Pavel started studying classical guitar at the age of seven and after few years won the national classical guitar competition. His innate musical talent inspired him to explore other musical instruments (drums and percussions, string instruments) and this led him to find his own very unique instrument: handpan.

He is now considered to be one of the most remarkable and original handpan players in the world. Pavel performs solo and together with his father Ivo; he also conducts handpan workshops, gives individual lessons and makes presentations about this unique musical instrument.


What I loved and was very moved by was the relationship between you two as a father and son duoThanks for such a divine experience!”
