Warszawski Sekstet Sentymentalny / Poland

Songs from pre-war theatres, courtyard ballads, and the couplets of the Warsaw and Lviv interwar period. The group’s repertoire also includes compositions by modern artists inspired by city folklore and traditional Polish melodies; they accompany dancing parties with lively polkas and foxtrots, sultry tangos and romantic waltzes.

 

Some of the Sextet musicians are associated with the Grupa Teatralna Warszawiaki (Varsovians Theatre Group) and the Warszawska Orkiestra Sentymentalna (Warsaw Sentimental Orchestra).

Gabriela Mościcka – vocals, accordion
Grzegorz Domański - banjola, vocals
Lena Nowak – clarinet, vocals
Mateusz Kowalski or Radosław Mysłek – drums, vocals
Kazimierz Nitkiewicz – trumpet
Łukasz Owczynnikow / Maksymilian Mucha – double bass

The concert took place in 2016.
