Face Book







“He lets the music flow through him and does not delimit it to specific genres. Maok is open, free, living and creating in the present.”



He was born in Bratislava in 1974. He´s got three children and now living in Bratislava again.

Maok’s music heals and inspires.
He plays at concerts, does music therapy, composes music for theatre, for dance production, illustrations and film music. When he gets on the stage, he has no idea what he’s going to play, as being a true hearted improviser. Doing music for music itself, it comes straight from his heart, and he lets it flow free, whatever comes. At some point he plays also some slovak folk music style.


here also wonderful samples from concerts



Maok is a musician, improviser, multi-instrumentalist, singer and composer. But above all, he is a person for whom music is an inseparable part of his life and the most distinct form of his self-expression. His unique style – dreamlike and sometimes even mystical – is instantly recognisable even when you’ve never heard the piece before.

Commenting on his music, Maok reveals: “To me, music is an expression of freedom and love. A way of conveying the wonder that a moment of creativity brings. That’s when beauty is born – beauty that can mesmerize us and open the door into the colourful and ever changing realms of our Soul. Or that can put a stop to all movement, leaving us to dissolve in that single place where emptiness is full – and which is simultaneously the pupil of our eyes. Beauty that can make us feel the pulsating ecstasy of a Heart on fire. Or that can make us embark on a journey of dance and movement, where we are at one with our body and its inner rhythms. Or we just take a nice little nap.”

Maok in team work with editorship Zebra and Cloud:
Maok: “My biggest priority in terms of music is freedom. Freedom in every way. That is why during my entire 20 year-long musical journey, I refused to sign contracts with music publishing houses that would set all kinds of terms and conditions, tying my hands and legs with masses of obligations and interdictions that basically turn a musician into a puppet.
Then one day I met Petr Rokusek and his music publishing house Zebra and Cloud. It’s a whole different world to the one I knew before. Our collaboration is based on new terms, where the greatest significance is placed on one’s word and complete mutual trust. Trust in the fact that no one will do anything at the expense of others in order to gain advantages for themselves. Everything is open, the laws that govern things around here are those of humanness. We’re setting out in a new direction. A direction that has new rules. Rules that we all long to live by somewhere inside, but are stopped in our tracks by fear. That is why I immensely appreciate our collaboration and believe that, together, we will gradually unearth the mystery of the “New World.”

“Dear Maok, To sense your music, feels to me like taking full part in a presence of my whole being, like being present in woods, in a leaf, in a raindrop as well as in a rain, flying in Infinite, in a chants of Wind, Sea, Shore or in the Sun..

Orchester of Freedom

Your genuine tuning into Now, the creation with everyone who joins… so in ease, that uplifts many many Hearts!

Life concert is unique itself, yet reflection at recordings carries most of it timelessly too…

Your sharing of Good, through you and thanks you, can flow to those who feel up for it in this music way… and engaging melody with Sandra’s flow…och, it’s the greatest Healing remedy to Harmony, it’s a motivation to tune my own strings too! For all of this I’d love to say JOYFULLY THANK YOU!

See our interview below”:



Hi, dear Maok, could you please tell us, what music instruments do you play and which one is your favourite?



The closest to me is probably a guitar and  a voice. But I also love whistles, piano, perkuse and many more 🙂




What is your main motivation, why do like making music, singing…?




Difficult question… something between heaven and earth.. like when you love someone and thinking about him/her while falling asleep, seeing them in your arms, you wish to be close to them… hard to say in words… I cannot do differently, and I do not want do it differently. 🙂



Many good things in life come for free. Makes different when we do see them and appreciate them in our day to day life… Would you share what kind of free and natural aspects you appreciate in your life?




Probably life itself.. I cannot separate it to subjects… I see it so linked one to another, that I appreciate everything..




Thank you, Maok, for your time and sharing
