Special Thursday Program
Detroit Film Theatre (Use John R. Entrance) – Free to the Public
Nine languages is linked to the traditions of Podlasie, the home region of multi-instrumentalist and composer Karolina Cicha. The project draws on the full range of traditional music, but rather than an archival compilation, it’s a compact whole, speaking in the minority languages of the Podlasie region of northeast Poland, bordering Russia, Lithuania and Belarus: Ukrainian, Lithuanian, Russian, Romani, Belarusian, Yiddish, Polish, Tatar and Esperanto.
Traditional folk instruments are joined by modern samplers and loopers, as well as ancient overtone singing.
