 BBC Radio 3 has announced the winners of its Awards for World Music 2004: And the winner is: WARSAW VILLAGE BAND

The sound of the Warsaw Village Band reminds you of Scandinavian music with it’s dark beauty, powerful and rough, with the arrangements and the emotions radiating from the music.” Folk World

The Warsaw Village Band are six young musicians having discovered the magic of ancient singing styles and instruments for their kind of music named “new folk”. They are playing Suka, a unique Polish type of fiddle, originally from the 16th century, played by fingernails. The singing style they adapted is called “white voice”, a kind of screaming, used in the past by Polish shepherds. They create rhythm by playing two drums, which is a rather unusual combination for any kind of folk music.

When the Warsaw Village Band was founded in 1997, they just wanted to have fun making music in a spontaneous way. In the beginning, they just beat the drums in any rhythm occurring to them until they met in a common sound. On People’s Spring, you can hear string instruments sounding like French horns, furious drums, trance, improvisation, and elements of roots music. And above all you can hear the enthusiasm and passion of six young musicians, who love to travel their country to find and keep the musical skills of the old ones for their own generation. The middle generation not being interested in the archaic sounds and instruments, the old village people recognized the Warsaw Village Band as the only possibility to keep tradition alive.

Using music as the soul’s best drug, as an inspiration and trance medita- tion, like it used to be during the centuries. It’s the rhythm, and it’s fun – let’s dance.
