LOVE SONGS OF GREEN WILDERNESS

LOVE SONGS OF GREEN WILDERNESS

On the northern side of the Narew river, in its middle course, live the Green Kurpie peoples. They preserve the tradition of the oldest form of “mazurzenie”, a phonological phenomenon, both in dialect and music. In their songs, we find musical scales which are older than the major-minor scale commonly used today. On the literary level, the songs are principally love poems. Adam Strug’s concert will include the most beautiful Kurpie songs, which are the work of an anonymous musical and literary genius. The realistic anthropology of these sung pieces, combined with the natural, rough vocal emission, make Strug’s performances a true tearjerker.
