Description
 
Folk tradition - the source of the oldest Polish musical idioms - was passed from generation to generation in the process of oral tradition.  Music has always been an indispensable form of entertainment at peasant festivities, gatherings in marketplaces or village inns and wedding feasts at royal courts.  On these occasions folk and court traditions interwove.  However, since the 16th century the distance between folk music and art music became more evident.   As we know from historical sources it was about that time that the Polish style in music emerged.  It can be best seen in so called Polish dances - choreae  polonicae, which gained enormous popularity in 17th century Europe.
The 16th and especially the 17th lute and organ tabulatures include a lot of such dances both in two beat and three beat time as a combination of two metrically contrasting parts.  Our intention was to present the mergence of folk archtypes with artistic creations in the course of history.  Although our music comes from authentic sources, we do not intend to just reconstruct performance tradition of the past, but also taking into account expectations of today's listener we try to find new and attractive ways of presenting the world of forgotten music.  The whole image of our group results not only from our repertoire and its special interpretation but also from the use of archaic instruments.
Unique copies of Polish historical instruments which have vanished - the suka from Bilgoraj, the fiddle from Plock, as well as a typical rural hollow violin and a hollow bass.  Apart from string instruments we also play other instruments deeply rooted in folk music: the dulcimer, the pipes, the bagpipe and the drums.
