Description

Dikanda is a young Polish group, founded in 1997 by accordionist and singer Ania Witczak in Szczecin, Poland. They play a mix of traditional East-European and gypsy music, plus their own compositions.

Dikanda in one of the African’s dialects stands for family. This is directly connected with the group’s spirit – they live and work as if it was a small, loving family. Passion for the traditional music and hard work let them create their own style and original sound. Their acoustic songs have been inspired wholly by Oriental culture, Balkan folklore – Macedonian and Romanian. Typical Dikanda’s style is creation of new words and meanings in composed songs.

So far they have played hundreds of concerts, played on many significant European festivals. They were given numerous prizes, including:

I Price at the Festival „Nowa tradycja” in 1999,

I Price at the Festival „Eurofolk” in 1999,

III place at the Folk Phonogram of the Year for the record „Jakhana Jakhana” in 2002,

The First Award and the Audience Award on “Folkherbst 2004” festival in Plauen,

Album of the year 2005 for “Usztijo” awarded by “Folker magazine”.

Dikanda’s concerts are a unique journey round the music of the world, a spontaneous meeting full of energy, charisma, genuine passion, joy and emotion for the audience as well as the band itself. They have played in India, Greece, and Russia and at the Montreux Jazz Festival. They achieved their popularity and great sympathy audience in many western-European countries (particularly in Germany, Austria, Switzerland and Italy).
