Folk Music Boom

Sutari in Concert

Sutari in Concert

When we look for less obvious holiday destinations in Poland, we may take inspiration from various sources. We may, for example, become inspired by a local band playing traditional folk music with a modern twist to it. Lately, we have seen the emergence of several groups who have decided to put more life onto the deadening Polish folk music scene. One of them is Sutari. The group consists of Basia Songin, Kasia Kapela and Zosia Barańska. The women released their first album “Wiano” (pol. Dowry) entirely by themselves. They take their listeners on a journey through folk stories about the love, fears and joys of life; the road meanders through their kitchen, through the forest and even sometimes through the big city. The songs, inspired by Polish and Lithuanian folk melodies, are simple in form, innovative, but not over-the-top. Sutari have added everyday objects to the traditional music instruments they play on, and so we hear cutting boards, glasses and also dripping water. The girls call themselves the kitchen avant-garde. However, when we listen to the harmonies in Sutari, we are left in no doubt that this is not just background music we listen to while making dinner. This is delectable Polish folk music.
