WARSAW VILLAGE BAND
Start with traditional Polish folk music. Then mix in some klezmer, free jazz and loud, powerful vocals. Finally, add some socially conscious lyrics and what do you have? The Warsaw Village Band.
This group is playing at the Pitman Theater on October 30 as part of the Alverno Presents Concert Series. It is sure to be one of the most unique and high energy performances of 2009. If you like Bulgarian wedding music, you will love the Warsaw Village Band. I have a feeling that the band’s performance will have people dancing in the aisles.
One of the most interesting things about the Warsaw Village Band is its utilization of instruments that are rarely heard in today’s music. Instruments like frame drums, the hurdy-gurdy and the suka are all prominently featured in many of the group’s musical selections. You won’t believe your ears!!
To get yourself ready for the performance, I recommend a shot (or two) of some Polish vodka and as many pierogi as you can eat. This is going to be a night you’ll never forget.
