How the ORZA PROJECT came into being


Milan Rehak got the nickname ''ORZA'' in the early childhood already. His very first guitar was bought for him by his grandma and aunty from Vienna, sometime in the year 1968. At that time he visited Italy and Austria with his parents. When by decision of his parents, they were returning back to Czechoslovakia being occupied then by Russians, he suspected that there will not be a good fate for him in there.

In the year of 1978 he got sick suddenly with a serious illness in his ears. (At that time he was in the band called ''ORNAMENT''). He sought the treatment with specialists, and he hoped to get a help from them. But they behaved negatively and in a very strange way. The desperate Orza then asked for a resettlement away from a Communist Czechoslovakia into Austria for a reason of a proper treatment of his ear illness. Unfortunately, his request was declined. With the help of his friends he managed to get into one of the Prague's hospitals, where he was supposed to undergo a needed surgery. But because of his political stance, being against the regime, instead of the planned surgery, he was incarcerated by the STB Police.

After he got released from the prison, where his health condition seriously deteriorated, he finally got into another of Prague's hospital. One doctor, who provided to Orza the admission to necessary surgery, was forced to advice him that because of intervention from the Communist Party and STB Police, he was forbidden to receive him to the hospital for the surgery.

Because of that, there was a worsening of Orza's illness and there were difficulties arising from that with irreversible consequences.

Further musical activity before the audiences was not possible anymore for Orza. Even after the 1989 political change and a ''velvet con'', which was organised in such a way by the KGB and STB Police by Russians' influenced children of the criminals from the previous era, that they would get to the political and economical power, so Orza could not get any satisfaction.

On the contrary, from those criminals there are further injustices for Orza.

Because by the previous (and today's) Communist Regime Orza was robbed of his health and hope to present his musical production publicly, so he started to devote himself to studio production with the support of his friends, after his initial difficulties.

He composes musical themes and songs, which he plays and records. He presents his production under the title ORZA PROJECT.
