WARSAW VILLAGE BAND
Winner of the Best Newcomer Europe category at this year’s BBC Radio 3 World Music awards, this ‘hardcore folk’ group was formed in ’97 by musicians to wanting preserve traditional Polish music, to create a living link to an oral tradition quashed by 50 years of communism. Their sound combines strings with pounding drums and trumpet, and a variety of traditional instruments including an ancient Polish fiddle, the suka, Jew's harp, hurdy-gurdy, and hammered dulcimer updated with the ingredients of world pop: trip-hop, dub and techno.
