The ORIGINAL PRAGUE SYNCOPATED ORCHESTRA is a Czech professional ensemble focused on 1920's American jazz, blues and hot dance music. ​It is considered to be one of the most stylistically pure and artistically convincing ensembles of its kind. ​Thanks to the use of historical instruments, forgotten playing techniques and sophisticated arrangements, the sound of the orchestra is both uniquely authentic and original at the same time.​ The orchestra was found in 1974 by Pavel Klikar - trumpet player, musicologist & expert in this genre.
