Following a one-year maternity leave, „Infinity“ shows us a matured Warsaw Village Band with incredible compositions and several Polish guests. The idea of the album’s title came along the need to take a dip in tradition, derive from it and create contemporary and modern compositions – to inspire other generations.
First time an album of „WVB“ features not traditional music, but compositions by Wojtek Krzak and Maja Kleszcz. For the ones having not seen the ensemble the voice of Maja is a huge surprise. Following a one-year maternity leave „Infinity“ shows us a matured Warsaw Village Band with incredible compositions and several Polish guests.
“Here is the latest, already the fourth studio album by Warsaw Village Band, our next, long–awaited child; and it was in fact the birth of a little human being that became the direct inspiration and cause for the creation of this album. In such situations, certain moments come when, lying beside the child, you observe its breathing, and you start to think about the countless, nameless generations that preceded us. You imagine those for whom we ourselves are going to be just an anonymous past without a face. After all, we are all born in a particular place and time, and shaped by culture of our ancestors. We live in big cities, seek our place on earth, lose old gods and find new ones, people, shelters, pictures, so that later we can hand them down to our children, who are born in a particular place and time, seek their place on earth, lose old gods and find new ones, people, shelters, pictures, so that later.. You begin feeling it clearly the moment you call others into being. No matter whether you live in Japan, the US, England, Germany or Poland – behind you stand the same generations, which like the rings of a tree, have accumulated their every trace in music, art, language – in a word – CULTURE. You emerge from it, enrich it and then pass it on. Ad infinitum. And here is how the idea of “Infinity” came into being – the need to take a dip in tradition, derive from it and create contemporary and modern compositions – to inspire other generations. Once again!” Wojtek Krzak
