Kraj za miastem (artist release)
cdRoots Code: rwm-wowakin
The trio WoWaKin was founded in the spring of 2016. The three musicians in the ensemble (Paula Kinaszewska, Bartlomiej Wozniak and Mateusz Wachowiak) bring together a wide range of experience in classical, jazz and contemporary music, and use those skills to explore the roots of Polish village dance music.
They recreate the spirit of a traditional village celebration, drawing a new generation of dancers into trance-like state through inventive, open-ended improvisation using a repertoire of mazurkas, oberkas, polkas, kuyaviaks, and Polish-style tangos.
Beside the violin, three-row Polish accordion and drums they use banjouke and harmonica. In 2016 the band debuted on the most important folk music competition in Poland "The New Tradition", and won the third prize. The Trio also won third prize at the festival "Folkowe Mikolajki" 2016 in Lublin.
This CD was a RootsWorld Music of the Month selection in January, 2018. Your purchase supports the radio program and magazine.

Please note!Most CDs have been imported from Europe or Asia. They are not all shrink-wrapped, and I am not going to con you by wrapping them here just to make you think they have been sterilized in America. We guarantee that the CDs and the contents are all brand new and in perfect condition. Whenever I can, I use recycled shipping materials. They may not look as pretty on the outside, but they save money and keep the trash dumps a little bit emptier.
