Musical notations (200 KB)

Our music is based on elements of original Slavic melodies, written down in 19th century by a famous Polish folk music researcher, Oskar Kolberg.

Several original Slavic instruments were used in our recordings, of which Wielkopolska drone pipes, ancient Slavic panpipes and a Kurpie wooden trumpet are only examples. A classical cello and a guitar were also used.

This booklet contains notes recording themes that inspired us, and a map on which you can find places in old Poland where the tunes originated.

We feel that in our music ancient themes have acquired a new age aura. Traditional Slavic melodies empowered with our inspiration gained pristine strength and a new harmony.

Why don't you sense this ancient mood of sycamore in the modern ambience of our music.
