Polish gigs at Britain’s legendary WOMAD festival

Polish folk bands Vołosi and Muzykanci will stage concerts at WOMAD, one of the largest world music festivals, which opens in Britain on Thursday. The event, taking place in the rural town of Malmesbury, south-west England, will host performances by some 100 artists hailing from 40 countries across the globe, including Mali, South Korea and Georgia.

The sounds of Polish string quartet Vołosi, bringing together Carpathian tradition with classical music, are “dynamic and energetic, and delve into universal emotions, evoking them in international audiences, including British listeners,” Anna Gruszka from London’s Institute of Polish Culture told Polish Radio.

Speaking about Muzykanci, Gruszka pointed to the folk ensemble‘s signature violin sound. “It immediately brings our part of Europe to mind,” she said.

The WOMAD festival runs until 31 July.
