Anyone who has ever been to a village wedding in Poland will remember the intensity of the music, singing and dancing. Swinging songs, melodies and rhythms, simple but sophisticated in its polyrhythms, become visible and clear through the steps and movements of the dancers. This “wild music” carries both the experience of something really ancient yet authentically rooted in the here and now. We would like to share the music we learned from our Village Masters that we love with all our hearts: mazureks, obereks, kujawiaks, wiwats and polonaises – played, sung and danced.
Wild Music from the Heart of Poland is part of Campus Project, organized by culture-pl. Additional co-sponsors include CPPS and the Department of Dance.
