The regions around the cities of Krakow and Tarnow have produced the best known Polish folk music. The term "krakowiak" may be found first in the 18th century as a general name for local double-time dances, such as: mijany (passage-dance), przebiegany (run-dance) or suwany (shuffle-dance). Their most characteristic rhythmic feature is syncopation (a shift of accent from the strong to the normally weak beat). The rhythm of krakowiak may be found in other music genres as well: in wedding songs (track 23,33d) and in Christmas carols (tr.17). On the Ciezkowice Plateau, krakowiaks and mazurkas used to be played in different episodes of the wedding ceremony, e.g. on the way to church (tr.30) or during the capping (tr.29). Among other dance tunes of Krakowskie and Tarnowskie one should mention polkas (tr.7,21,24,26,28,34), obereks (tr.5,13,19,31), chodzony (a walking dance, tr.10) and mazurkas (tr.25,29,32) as well as vanishing play-dances: przepiorka (a quail), jesiotr (a sturgeon) or zuraw (a crane). Mazurka rhythm, like that of krakowiak, is present in old wedding songs (tr. 33a,b,c) and in carols performed with an accompaniment of band music (tr.27). Polish-English booklet with details about the musicians and their music.
