VOŁOSI (London Premiere)

Sat 21 May
Contemporary

VOŁOSI (London Premiere)

The five-strong string band VOŁOSI are one of the undiscovered treasures of Polish traditional music.


Combining two classical and three folk musicians from the south of the country, VOŁOSI create a distinctive sound with a dramatic stage presence.

With free-wheeling virtuosity and exuberant intensity, they harness the energy of colliding musical worlds, creating a unique boundary-crossing fusion style rooted in Carpathian tradition, infused with classical complexity and charged with inspired improvisation, in which two violins, viola, cello, double bass and occasional pipes spur each other to greater heights.

A thrilling discovery!

Please note that the original date for this show was Wednesday 18 August. Due to ongoing travel restrictions caused by Covid-19, the concert had to be postponed.
