Songs of peasants' revolt against the feudal system of exploitation - supplemented with themes of archaic folk songs of rebellion from Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. The most influential vocalists of socially concerned Polish rock scene were invited to perform there: Paweł "Guma" Gumola (Moskwa), Robert "Robal" Matera (Dezerter), Nika (Post Regiment) and Hubert "Spięty" Dobaczewski (Lao Che). The music is performed on acoustic instruments: Płock and medieval fiddles, sases, traditional baraban, frame drum, double bass and saw etc. by an array of folk music personalities; on the stage there will be musicians of the bands: Kapela ze Wsi Warszawa [Warsaw Village Band], Rivendell, Mosaic, Maćko Korba. R.U.T.A could be translated as the Movement of Utopia, Transcendence and Anarchy or as the Reactionary Terrorist-Artistic Union. Radical music clan.
