Bukowianie / Poland

 

The music of the band BUKOWIANIE from Bukowina Tatrzańska undoubtedly stands out in its sound and interpretation due to the famous violinist Bronisława Dziadoń-Konieczna (1894-1968), who today is a role model for the young generation of Podhale musicians.

 

Bukowina Tatrzańska is one of the few villages belonging to Skalne Podhale, directly adjacent to the highest Carpathian massif: the Tatra Mountains. This unique location made local people tough, proud and sensitive to the beauty of nature. Also the culture here, which was shaped for centuries, is very unique, including music, that has remained almost unchanged in Bukowina for over a hundred years.

 

The traditional music of the Skalne Podhale remains and is passed down from generation to generation not by means of musical notation but by direct transmission (by ear) from the elders to the youngers. An important element of its originality comes from cultivating it in dedicated musician families, where they are performed even in the 4th and 5th generations in a specific manner, characteristic of a given village or family.

Traditional music of Skalne Podhale (violins, basses, rascals, bagpipes, pipes, thrombits). Members: Bartłomiej Koszarek, Marek Majerczyk, Jan Kuchta, Łukasz Górnik, Łukasz Babiarz, Michał Kossek.

The concert took place in 2019.
