Short Info

Nord is a meeting of musicians in search of common elements between the Slavs, the Scandinavians and the aboriginal peoples of the North. The Warsaw Village Band hosts this musical summit as a tribute to the heroes and mystics, the Viking warriors, and the poets of the Saami and Inuit peoples. Music strangely familiar; harsh, but dignified, cold, rough – deep and strong, with a hint of nostalgia and with a piercing thrill of truth. The relationships of the countries of the North have a long history. The Vikings invaded Polish lands in the Middle Ages and had considerable influence on the Polish state. They also explored deeply into the continent of North America, establishing settlements in present-day Canada.

2012 the year of their 15th anniversary brought the Warsaw Village Band to perform at Vancouvers Chutspah Festival „The Blessing on the Moon“ a new operatic/theatre production based on the book of the same name by Joseph Skirbell with music composed by Andy Terstein at the Norman & Annette Rothstein Theatre. The performance was showcased as well in New York. Also it is the year when WVB is coming back the band finished the work on their 6th album– NORD.

During the Polish – Swedish wars of the 17th century, along with other spoils, Sweden also imported the Polish dance Kujawiak, which to this day, is known in Sweden by the name Polska. All of these diverse but related musical influences meet for the first time ever in the Warsaw Village Band Nord project.

Guests in Warsaw Village Bands Nord include the Swedish cult band Hedningarna (track 1 & 2), considered a seminal precursor of world music. Hedningarna, whose music has long been admired by Warsaw Village Band, come to return the stolen Kujawiak!

The Nord project is also graced by the presence of Sandy Scofield (track 10) – one of the greatest Canadian singer/songwriters, with roots deep in her Indian past. “Nord” is the collective result of this unique encounter between artistes; a return to the wild, tribal trance notes, as well as lyrical songs and pulsating dance.

Below is a promo-mix from the Warsaw Village Band’s album “NORD“.

A video clip for the song “Hey You, Yokel’s son” (feat. Hedningarna).
